Bitdefender is a top antivirus program. It can detect more malware threats and offers a pleasant user interface, and offers superior customer service options. It also has higher scores in independent assessments conducted by AVTest and AV-comparatives.
Webroot SecureAnywhere, unlike most antivirus software programs is a cloud-based program which uses remote detection to provide device protection. It works by checking and comparing files to the cloud database. This method doesn’t have a huge impact on the performance of your PC, so it is compatible with older software and hardware. Its security features include ransomware prevention and protection against phishing.
Webroot’s dark and sombre interface may not appear as sleek or modern as its competitors, but it is still intuitive and easy to navigate. The main screen displays the status of your computer and lets you run the Smart Scan, or a manual check. The left side rail has all the most important functions and utilities grouped into four broad categories.
The interface of Avast is contemporary and minimalist. The main screen is simple and shows your PC’s current status and allows you to run a Smart Scan or manual check.
