Integrates security for PC, Android and iOS users with centralised management
Webroot, an Internet security service company, has introduced the consumer portfolio of Webroot SecureAnywhere.
Webroot SecureAnywhere installs in six seconds and immediately scans the PC, claimed Weebroot, adding, for users who simply want their security to work for them, Webroot SecureAnywhere removes the burden by handling it automatically.
In addition, the tool features 124 settings experts can customise, and advanced tools for diagnosing security problems, said the company.
Webroot SecureAnywhere enables users to manage security for all of their PCs, tablets, and mobile devices from a single web portal, with a single license.
Individuals who serve as their family’s "tech expert" can be given administrative privileges to monitor their family’s protection via the Web portal, said Webroot.
Webroot claimed that SecureAnywhere is the first security tool to "leverage comprehensive application behaviours to determine the categorisation of all software, good and bad."
Every file that tries to run on a PC is analysed and the data is fed into Webroot’s threat intelligence network in the cloud. Within seconds, everyone around the world using Webroot SecureAnywhere is protected from the newest threats, said the company. If a computer is offline, Webroot SecureAnywhere monitors the system and if malicious activity is observed, it will take action against it automatically, added Webroot.
Webroot CEO Dick Williams said that for far too long, people have endured a miserable experience with their PC security.
"Security vendors, including Webroot, have expected customers to buy, install, and manage security products by themselves. This industry has been delivering products that are less and less effective against threats from zero-day exploits, social engineering, and other sophisticated techniques we see today. Webroot is taking the misery out of security. Webroot SecureAnywhere is the fastest, lightest, and the least demanding – so people are free to do what they want online," Williams said.
Antimalware protection for Mac is planned for early 2012, said the company.
