This week, our “Security app of the week” series features an interesting free PC-assessment application that’s designed to scan computers to look for all sorts of issues, including security holes and performance problems.
Webroot System Analyzer performs an analysis on 24 key areas in just 2 minutes, or even less. It informs the customer regarding virus infections, firewall status, operating system updates, and installed antivirus solutions.
More importantly, this piece of software is very easy to use, which is why we recommend it for all regular users who don’t know much about what’s hiding under the hood
of their computers, but they want to make sure that it’s not exposed to risk.
Professionals can also benefit from System Analyzer. The reports on hardware and software conflicts, and system vulnerabilities might not make much sense to the average Joe (or Jane), but they’re surely very useful to someone who’s trying to fix a buggy computer.
Many users are aware that with each app they install, they risk affecting their computer’s performance. Webroot System Analyzer will not cause such problems because it doesn’t need to be installed onto the computer. Customers must run it, press the Scan
button, and voilà
: the system is analyzed.
At the time it was released, Mike Malloy – executive vice president of Webroot Products and Strategy – said, “System Analyzer is a fast and accurate system analysis that helps IT administrators troubleshoot and remediate issues with individual machines in their organization.”
“It is the digital Swiss Army knife that every IT administrator and support personnel should have in their toolkit,” he explained.
Webroot’s faithful customers should know that the company is advertising System Analyzer as “the perfect complement” to Webroot SecurityAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection.
