What is Webroot using port 8090 for?

I'm on a MacBook Pro running El Capitan (10.11.6).
lsof shows that Webroot is listening on port 8090.  This conflicts with other stuff I'd like to run on my machine that's non-trivial to change the port assignments.
Can it be changed to a different port or stopped?

Can anyone answer this question?  I am encountering similar issues, a docker image that wants port 8090 won't start, and after I shut WebRoot down Mac OS still sees 8090 as being in use - this is interfering with my work.
I want to be able to tell WebRoot to use some other port.
