Webroot’s protection strategy isn’t very common. It looks at the behavior of suspicious application or file to determine if it’s a threat. This is not the method that most testing laboratories test antivirus programs and may impact the scores Webroot receives. MRG Effitas, however, found that Webroot stopped almost all threats in a way that was automatic or within an hour. Webroot’s unique method of protection makes it the top choice in this class.
Avast’s wide range of support options are another excellent feature. Avast has a knowledge base on its site that contains support tutorials and a residential forum where users can ask questions and get answers. The company offers live chat and telephone support to customers who pay premium.
Webroot however, on the other on the other hand, doesn’t have as many direct support options. It does, however, have a strong presence on social media and gives users free discussion boards. Its customer service is more responsive than that of Avast, however, it requires a subscription to access its phone support.
