The complete report is available at http://www.webroot.com/shared/pdf/Passmark_Endpoint.pdf.
Top Report Findings for Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection:
- Installed nearly 9 times faster than the nearest competitor, and over 250 times faster than the worst performing product.
- Requires 13 times less disk space than the next smallest product tested, 79 times less than the largest product tested.
- Lightest on CPU usage while scanning, requiring less than half the processing power of the average competitive product.
- Uses only 93 percent less memory than the average competitor when running an initial scan.

“When we released Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection two years ago, it set a new standard for performance; eliminating the system lags, slow scans, and other performance problems that businesses had experienced for years with other endpoint security products," said Mike Malloy, executive vice president of products and strategy at Webroot. "The latest Passmark test results clearly show Webroot has maintained that advantage. In terms of overall performance, there's Webroot, and then there's everyone else.”
