BROOMFIELD, Colo., Oct. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Webroot, the first Internet security service company, today announced it has been awarded PC Mag's highest editorial honor, the Editors' Choice award.  

Webroot was honored for two of its brand-new antivirus security services -- Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ AntiVirus, the company's basic antimalware solution, and Webroot® SecureAnywhere™ Complete, its premium suite.

In the PC Mag review, its author reported that Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus "turned in the only perfect malware blocking score I've ever encountered in my years of testing," giving it a score of 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The PC Mag reviewer also cited the following about Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus: "It's important to remember that Webroot works differently from almost all of its competition. Except for a very tiny collection of signatures for specific problem viruses, it relies totally on monitoring process behavior and correlating that behavior with data from its immense cloud database. That same behavior monitoring lets it identify which other files are owned by the threat. I'm quite impressed that it can manage a top-notch cleanup job without the baggage of a signature database."
