    Webroot Inc is calling you out to preview their new 2010 suite. With a $250 Amazon gift card as prize for the best testers.

    Due to some bad Webroot incidents in the past, I usually stay away from anything that they make. But maybe someone else would find the latest Webroot avatar enticing :cautious:

    It’s interesting that no mention is made by Webroot of adding “in-the-cloud” technologies to its 2010 security suite. Webroot appears to have some of these capabilities in its business product (see here) -- so, will they migrate the functionality into the consumer product?

    you know, this is one suite that might be interesting. I think we can agree with their in-house antispyware ability. I am sure they have out sourced some other modules from other vendors. But clean-up and a few others may make this worth a spin. Guess I need to try it.

    Does everything apply for the new beta as well? I knew those specific details, but not sure if the same technical details applied for the beta too - the software that their security is based on that's. ;)

    The UI looks similar to BitDefender or Norton...

    Just hope that they can make the Sophos AV component more customizable.

    I would expect their antispyware ability to be sub par compared to the best AV vendors. I mean, who cares about viruses that reformat harddrives ? Those are rare, no business model either. 'Viruses' and 'spyware' and 'adware' have blended into malware.
