1st Test of Webroot SecureAnywhere – #Webroot, #SecureAnywhere, #BYOD – via @WeCloud

It’s not very often that I test endpoint protection, antivirus or antimalware software. But tonight I started to have a look at Webroot and I must say that I’m really liking it!

There are some parts in particular that I like about it:

  1. It’s “cloud” based, so you don’t need your own costly infrastructure! 
  2. It takes seconds to deploy to a new Windows instance
  3. It scanned the XenDesktop controller that I installed  it on in 42 SECONDS! Wow! That’s amazing! 😀
    Scan_Time_42_seconds_wow
  4. The footprint is close to NOTHING!
  5. The installer is just a couple of MB!!
  6. It fits into the BYOD model

First of I just started a new trial, which was really easy! Just log on to the webpage and register, then after entering your info you’re all set and ready do deploy your “agents”.

My first thought was that this is really great for environments where you’d like low footprint, quick installation and low maintenance efforts of your antivirus software. And the way that Webroot does the scanning of the files etc. is so great and makes the software so quick and neat!

This must be perfect for XenDesktop and XenApp environments is my thought!! I’ll try it our more and will let you know! And why not provide this as an option in your BYOD program?

Here are some reviews that I was given by WeCloud, and they pretty much (or actually more) confirm that this is some good software!
