WSA is different in the following ways:
  • Detects, blocks and removes all infections, including highly sophisticated banking malware, from your PC in the fastest possible time
  • Has an integrated Identity Shield feature that provides a secondary layer of defense against financial and information stealing malicious software. Identity Shield assumes your PC may already be infected with sophisticated and hard-to-detect malware such as a banking trojan and neutralises the threat by shutting off its data theft activities on your PC, thereby keeping your identity and online activities secure
  • Doesn't need virus definition updates, which go out-of-date within minutes. Instead, it uses the Webroot® Intelligence Network  to identify new files and classify threats in real time. In this way, it identifies brand new threats in seconds, rather than hours or days, and significantly minimises the risks posed by malware
  • It is lightweight and uses the least PC resources of any antivirus; at less than one megabyte in size. A normal deep scan takes one to three minutes (depending on your machine) and will not slow down your PC
