Bitdefender is one of the top antivirus programs available on the market. It detects more malware-related threats, has a comfortable user interface, and better customer support options. It also scores higher in independent tests carried out by AV Test and AV-Comparatives.
In contrast to most antivirus software, Webroot SecureAnywhere is a cloud-based application that utilizes remote detection to guard devices. It operates by scanning files and comparing them against the cloud database for potential threats. This method doesn’t have an enormous impact on PC performance, so it is compatible with older hardware and software. Its security features include ransomware security and protection against phishing.
Webroot’s dark and sombre interface may not look as sleek and contemporary as some of its competitors, but it is still intuitive and easy to navigate. The main screen displays the status of your computer and allows you to run a Smart Scan, or a manual check. The left-hand side rail is home to all of the main functions and utilities, divided into four broad categories.
Both companies have great technical support and documentation resources. Avast has an extensive knowledge base searchable with guides for different products. The site also offers an email form to reach customer support agents. It does not offer live chat like some of its competitors.
