When it is about protecting computer systems from viruses and malware The two McAfee and Webroot have good reputations. Which is better? This depends on several factors, such as system performance, malware prevention user experience, features and compatibility.
The best thing about Webroot is its light-on system software which makes use of cloud technology as well as heuristic analysis to help keep your computer secure. The antivirus suite is also focused on using less system resources than other antivirus programs to ensure that they don’t slow down your computer. It also comes with a broad variety of security features, including rapid scans, LastPass password manager, 25GB of secure online storage, and shredders for data.
In the realm of malware protection both McAfee and Webroot can keep your device protected against ransomware, phishing attacks, spyware, rootkits and more. Webroot’s malware detection system is more advanced than McAfee’s and can stop many different threats. In addition it comes with a real-time shield and infrared protection engine which stops new threats in the early stages of attack.
Webroot is faster at scanning and installing than McAfee. It also uses less memory and has a less system load. It also has a clean and classy interface. It lacks some of the premium McAfee features, including the VPN and password manager. Its System Optimizer is the only feature that McAfee does not offer. This tool helps clear space on a device and ensures that deleted data can’t be retrieved by hackers or malware.
