Welcome to the Community Forums.
No, you are good to go...as all definitions, signatures, whitelisting, etc., is held in the Webroot Cloud (WIN) and therefore WSA on your local system is always checking with that so you are always using the latest definitions, signatures, whitelisting, etc.
Please see the diagram below for more information on how WSA works in that respect:

Webroot is cloud based. There is a huge data base where all threat information is stored. As long as you have internet, you are always up to date. Software updates are installed silently in the background as well.
