Bitdefender is a top antivirus software. It can detect more malware threats and provides a comfortable user interface, and has more options for customer support. It also scored higher on independent tests conducted by AV Test and AV Comparatives.
Webroot SecureAnywhere, unlike most antivirus software programs, is a cloud program that makes use of remote detection to provide device security. It operates by scanning files and comparing them against the cloud database for possible threats. This method has a minimal impact on the performance of your PC and can be used with older software or hardware. Its security features include real-time threat detection, ransomware protection, phishing protection, and firewall capabilities.
Webroot’s dark interface may not look as sleek and contemporary as some of its rivals, but it’s still logical and easy to navigate. The main screen shows your PC’s current status and lets you run a Smart Scan, or a manual check. The left side rail contains all the major functions and utilities grouped into four broad categories.
Avast offers a more modern and minimalist user interface. Its main screen is simple and displays the current status of your PC. It also allows you to run a Smart Scan or manual check. All the major functions and utilities are grouped into four broad categories on the left rail, making it simple for beginners to use.
Both companies have great technical support and documentation resources. Avast has a searchable knowledgebase that includes tutorials for various products. It also has an email form to contact agents for customer support. However, it does not offer live chat, as do many other competitors.
