5. Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus
Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus is featherweight, compact, and will get you a fair level of protection against threats, even though it is yet to be tested by any major independent lab. Not only will it require a minimum of your system’s resources, but it will also provide excellent real-time anti-phishing protection, assisted by the smart firewall that monitors your connections to the Internet.
Despite being compact and user-friendly, it doesn’t lack advanced features such as a sandbox that allows you to run potentially dangerous apps in a safe, isolated environment, away from the rest of your system.
Being fully cloud-based, the company prides itself with scans faster than the competition. The best part? You can take the product for a test ride thanks to the 14-day free trial period (no credit card required) and there’s also a risk-free no-questions-asked 70-day money-back guarantee if things don’t work out.
