"Simple and effective method of training users"

What do you like best?

I like the way that the Security Awareness training is a simple method of training end users about the causes of clicking links that could possible cause major breaches for their own information as well as a business's safety.

What do you dislike?

Having to review the reporting on a regular basis determine who has clicked the links. But apart from this there have not been anything else i can think of that i disklike.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend spending time looking at trusted emails and using the HTML coding to make it look effective but with simple mistakes so it does not catch the end user out every time. The SAT is extremely cost effective and does exactly what you need to do as well as having the benefit of providing the end user with courses to complete to increase their knowledge regarding security awareness.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Making end users aware and the effecting training in what can possibly gone wrong if a simple link is clicked. Making end users aware of the basics regards Security Awareness.

Making users aware of the harmful links that can be found within

"Easy to deploy, addresses the massive security holes in business networks: the click happy users."

What do you like best?

Some good convincing phishing templates. Very reasonable pricing allowing an extended training period for not much money. Some decent training materials for those that do get caught (and obviously need it). Nice reporting that lists results. Ability to span different time periods with multiple campaigns.

What do you dislike?

Not having absolute control as to when stuff is sent. So an instant test of targets is not avaiable. Some more contry specific campaigns (I am in the UK) would be nice. A capture email contents and reuse import would be great to test current problem email acceptance.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Low cost means you can run a campaign quickly and cheaply. Its suprising who gets caught and is a fun game if you write predictions before each email campaign.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Refreshing customers safe behaviour. Showing customers who have trained some staff in security awareness through presentations, the difference that training makes (non-trained staff tend to get caught a lot more).

Overall reinforcing the weakest security layer: people.

What Security Awareness Training solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Super easy to comprehend"

What do you like best?

Webroot Security Awareness Training is setup in a way that is easy to access and easy to comprehend. I especially recommend this course for beginners or users that need a refresher on security practices. The videos are interesting and you won't be bored to death with the quick training.

What do you dislike?

There isn't a whole lot to dislike about the Webroot Security Awareness training. If anything, I suppose it would be nice to have a more in depth version available to take after the WSAT.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are educating our newer IT admins and some of our power users about the basics of Security Awareness. It seems to be an easy way to get people introduced to the concept.

"Easy Training That Is Just as Easy to Manage"

What do you like best?

The simulations that the package offers are excellent. Webroot allows for very detailed tailoring of the fake phishing emails. We have been able to make them extremely realistic and mirror Microsoft emails and others. The associated training for users is also easy to understand is very accurately illustrates what they need to look for.

What do you dislike?

The licensing model does not make it as easy to only pay for months you need to use it. Doing training monthly or more often would be ideal. However, not all of our clients want to pay to have the constant charge. They still want training, but only a handful of times per year. We were able to work with Webroot to find a way to accomplish this, but the licensing model is clearly not meant to encourage this option.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They offer a 30-day trial, so that is a great way to test it out to see what it offers. Having some sort of phishing training to offer clients is highly valuable. This is a great option, if not the best option out there right now.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Phishing is a real problem and will not be going away any time soon. Finding an effective way to train users on this has not been easy or convenient in the past. Webroot's solution offers exactly this, and managing campaigns is very simple. And, it gives an easy way to resell the product to our clients.

"Security Awareness Training, at its best. "

What do you like best?

The best thing i like about SAT is Its intuitiveness. It is very simple to set up and configure, and provides a number of options. I've tested phishing campaigns with Go Phish and SecTools. This is by far a superior product. It lets you keep track of all the actions a user performed, and allows users to be redirected to training videos upon clicking on a phishing link. This is an important item, as many other products, simply tell you that the end user fell victim to the attack, and captures the details they provided, however, the "training" stops there. Going that extra step of providing information on what they did wrong, and how to prevent it from happening again speaks volumes. It teaches users to be proactive.

What do you dislike?

As good as this product is, the only thing i could probably say i dislike is the price point. Although you cant put a number on security and training, most companies do not want to pony up.

The only other issue is small, but if you have Webroot DNS enabled, or you have the Webroot Web Plugin, web browsers seem to block the link being opened. This is a good thing, but also goes against the purpose.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give it a test run, make sure understand the concepts and don't forget to whitelist,

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When testing with one of our companies, we realized how many users lacked the proper training on security. It is such an important aspect in todays technology with so many attacks in all forms. The question now a days is not if you will be attacked, it is WHEN will you be attacked. Every untrained user is vulnerable, and with the training this product provides, it should be implemented in companies globally.

"Webroot Security Awareness - From a Scientist"

What do you like best?

I love that Webroot has a designed and developed community that gives access to security news, product questions, and expert advice. As someone that is not technologically inclined, I have utilized this forum often to understand my tech and how it is protected better. I also thoroughly enjoy the trivia questions they provide on their website!

What do you dislike?

There isn't much I dislike about the software itself. If I had to change anything it would be the initial welcome/home screen when I open the software. I would like to see more data on what my computer is doing, or what else I could do to make my computer more secure - specific to what I do on my computer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As far as business problems, I am ensuring that my data that needs to stay confidential is and public data can be publicized safely. I've realized how important it is to transfer data safely, for example, via a dropbox or portal of some sort. Currently, I use a Citrix portal to transfer private data to our clients.

"Simply and easy to use and deploy "

What do you like best?

The training courses are easy enough for users to understand without being over complicated and boring. The fact you can target courses and run an entire program of courses and Phishing tests to a useful feature. Some good convincing phishing templates and we have created a new one for mime cast which was great! We managed to catch out a few of our customers with this phishing email template.

What do you dislike?

I think the reporting isn't as mature as it could be. The data is there but its quite hard to interpret and present back in a usable format.I would like the reporting to be expanded so we can get reports for our sales team, so they can then interact with our customers.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to target users with training and showing there are issues with users simply clicking through to websites without thinking about the consequences.

"Excellent tool to raise user awareness."

What do you like best?

WSAT is very easy to use. To launch a campaign requires very little effort and there are a fair number of templates available to use.

What do you dislike?

The number of templates is not as broad as other security awareness training programs. There are not as many tools available either.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Sign up for the free trial. There is no reason not to if you are interested in the product.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Raising awareness within users is the overall goal. Making users suspicious of electronics messages and second-guessing, or ever better -- verifying authenticity. Raising user awareness helps tremendously with keeping user data and system information safe.

"A quick training programme to keep your users on their toes, but there are problems too..."

What do you like best?

Here is a little background of the product: this product allows you to send fake emails to your supported users and if they click on the dodgy link/macro/file, they will get redirected to a training video of your choice (but keep it related). Now, the best part about this training programme is how easy it is to send out these fake emails, a quick 5 minutes to choose what will be included in the email and where the link in the email will go to. It's easy and very evil for some of the choices, there are some templates which make you laugh like a villian when you read through it. Experienced users can still get caught out by these emails, much more so when the emails are directed towards programs they use frequently, for example; if your users use dropbox, microsoft office or gmail. You get reports when your users have clicked on the link, so its pretty good to find out who might need more training or a potential visit.

What do you dislike?

This is a good product by Webroot. However with all good products, there are downsides. Recently, when trying send out a security training email with a fake link, when we clicked on the link to test where it would be going; chrome, firefox and (to an extent) edge blocked the website for us. At first I thought, "hey, thats good of google" then I realised the problem that these websites that webroot are using are being blocked by the browsers and this causes problems with the training, the user's wont get trained because the broswer has blocked the websites. Webroot should be aware of these changes.

Navigation of the Security Awareness Training page is missing functionality, there are boxes which give you information of how many targets (users) you have and how many campaigns have been launched.

You can't click them to view the information, instead you have to navigate through different menu's to get there. This is more of a quality of life implementation that should of been there from the start.

Adding new targets (users) to the overall company target list is an obsolete pain, you only have one choice, to import a list with all your new targets details. Say, if you needed to add multiple people, sure this method works nicely and is easy to do. But if you wanted to add one or two new people, you need to download a new file and add one or two lines in and then reupload, when a simple add button with the fields on, done through the website would be more efficient and wouldn't annoy techs.

And that's the things I dislike with this programme, maybe the points I listed are small and petty points, but they are what can turn people away from using a product. Even through these bad points I still recommend this product.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use it to test your customers regularly and see if they need further training once they have clicked on the fatal link.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits we have realised, would be that we can test who in the business is liable to click on a link which could cost the company, in money and lost data. In catching these users out they can watch the informational video and realised they shouldn't rush into the email and click the link. This has increased the security of the businesses' we monitor, as when we call the users to follow up on their link click they know that it was not a good idea to do so and we are able to educate them further.

"Excellent Centralized Way of Doing Security Training"

What do you like best?

Being an existing user of Webroot products, it's super easy to get campaigns started because everything is centralized in the Webroot console.

What do you dislike?

Just need to update and provide newer content a little bit faster.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would consider looking to implement the Security Awareness Training alongside Webroot's other offerings like their DNS and Endpoint Protection. The ease of use and the central management of all three allows you to better manage your clients.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

You can throw an AV agent and network firewalls etc... but without training your users, you still leave your organization at great risk.

"Great content, easy to use - few bits not there yet but sure will come with time"

What do you like best?

The training content is well presented and easy for those taking the courses to understand. From an admin perspective, the speed at which you can set a course up and running is really impressive, plus now as an MSP we can manage it globally from our GSM console.

What do you dislike?

Needs auto addition of users. If we could have a workflow that said 'when I create a user in Office 365, automatically enroll these courses' then ' in 1 month enroll these courses' etc plus running phishing campaigns the product would require far less admin overhead.

Phishing emails often get caught in spam filters and junk folders (they're doing their job at least!)

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Educating team members on cyber security to fulfill our obligations under regulations such as GDPR, Cyber Essentials Plus and ISO27001.

"Excellent and straightforward training"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of the process of doing the training the videos are not too long and its very easy to follow.

What do you dislike?

There are no major drawbacks that I can think of to be honest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The portal is easy to use and the training is very straightforward. Having looked at a variety of different products, we have found that SAT aligns very nicely with our existing stack of security products, so we would definitely recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Assists clients with knowledge on the types of scams to look out for.

"To cover the human element of endpoints."

What do you like best?

The concepts. Considering endpoint an entity formed by not only devices but also by users, now we have the right tool to manage completely the endpoint protection.

What do you dislike?

It's english only, not localized. Ok for the possibility of customize some elements, but training materials and posters are only in english. We are in Italy, and this is a big limitations.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem to manage in an organized way end users training and evaluation about cyberrisks. We now have the possibility to improve vulnerability scans of customer network including the human elements.

"Clean and effective awareness program"

What do you like best?

As the title reads the training program is really efficient in educating masses the benefits of cyber security. The best part about the program I found was simulation training on Phishing attacks. How to prevent phishing and once affected what are the immediate next steps one should follow?

What do you dislike?

There could have been more interactive sessions/projects on real-life security breaches. A scenario backdrop where the user is playing an important role in preventing breaches. Such simulations are better and fun for users.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Its worth the money.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Educating masses on prevention of cyber-attacks is a general way of spelling benefits of this program. Users who want to pursue cybersecurity, its a great training for them. Having this course in one's portfolio also leverages his chances for future opportunities in cyber-security.

"Excellent tool for both learning and reminding myself and colleagues about security"

What do you like best?

The tool to send example phishing emails to users is brilliant. This really reminds you how easy it is to get caught with these emails and should hopefully open employees eyes.

What do you dislike?

Some of the courses are a bit short and simple, and some dont even have any questions at the end which makes it a bit too easy for users to click through to gain certification without looking at or taking in the content.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

You can use the trial to see if this seems suitable for your organisation with no obligation to buy which is ideal

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The training has made the whole office more security aware and knowledgeable I believe reducing the chances of a phishing email been opened significantly.

"Cool Entry Level Option"

What do you like best?

The concept and execution of this is very cool. Setting up users and a campaign was very easy. There are several templates to choose from for the campaign and landing page.

What do you dislike?

All the domains needs to be manually whitelisted for this to work. We use gmail so the product wasn't very useful to us as the spam filters automatically pick it up.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ensure that you're capable of editing the whitelist for your email or these will be auto filtered to junk.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Running a security assessment to see what users would click on.

"Informative but not bloated"

What do you like best?

The training was very to the point with no fluff to bulk it out making it perfect to fit in a busy schedule.

What do you dislike?

very difficult to find anything wrong with the training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

From initial phishing campaign it is straight forward to identify the users that need further training and maybe 1-1 coaching to assist them in keeping the organisations data safe. Ongoing campaigns can then keep staff conscious of the threat posed by these attacks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have a client with over 1000 non IT staff based remotely around the country that we can now roll this out to and it will enable us to start making them more aware of the types of attacks that can and do occur.

"Easy peasy setup and realistic looking emails"

What do you like best?

How realistic the emails looked ... they almost got me!

What do you dislike?

I'm not sure if the function is in there, but it would be nice if you could set it up to do random emails over a period of time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you would like to give your clients a complete cyber security package then add this to your line up.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adding this to our managed service makes it a more complete solution bundled with endpoint & dns protection.

"It's come a long way"

What do you like best?

It has a great range of intuitive videos that really help you understand things such as physical security and GDPR.

What do you dislike?

The only slight issues I've had with it is that some of the video's are targeted at an American audience using examples such as a W2 document. Being from the UK, I had no idea what this was when it was used in a question.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trial it and see the results! There's plenty of training sessions to sink your teeth into.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Need to train staff as part of our Information security policy outlined using the ISO27001 framework. Since implementing this, and utilising the phishing simulations. Click rates have dropped to 0%.

"WebRoot all the way. Easy to learn and easy to teach."

What do you like best?

What I like best about WebRoot Security Awareness Training is that they understand the reality of the workplace and how things can truly be. It's not over-inflated or "assumed" that things don't happen, so rather, they cover all the basis with correct information to prepare you for any type of situation that may arise.

Even if you have a somewhat minimal IT background, it's extremely easy to follow and the information that comes from it is still useful for the every day.

What do you dislike?

I didn't really dislike anything, probably the fact that I didn't do it sooner.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

WebRoot, overall, Is just a great company to work with and their solutions are simple and effective. I see no other reason for jumping ship to another company when they already do everything as needed.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Along with Webroot Security Awareness Training, we use their software on campus. It's a nice double-protection on the objective level and subjective level. Our users are more informed and aware of things but we also have a physical defense in place just incase something where to happen.

"Admin side heavy for a MSP"

What do you like best?

The simplicity yet effective courses. It’s hard to keep anyone’s attention now days, however the courses that Webroot developed did a great job of teaching the basics in a fun enough matter that incentives to complete the course.

What do you dislike?

From a MSP standpoint the vast array of options just wasn’t scalable like their Endpoint product. It required a lot of admin intervention from the MSP without offering controls out to the client.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It’s about educating the end user. It doesn’t matter how much you invest in security if the end user allows malicious content into your organization. Vast array of phishing emails & courses are basic and to the point yet fun.

"Easy to follow, with great information. "

What do you like best?

The security awareness training was to the point, and demonstrated multiple situations that could occur in a real world situation. Multiple examples of Phishing attempts were demonstrated, and steps to differentiate these emails form legitimate emails were provided. I appreciated the ability to send out different types of security training, such as short videos, or long videos.

What do you dislike?

I've always been against cartoon like graphics. Some end users do not take the training seriously due to this.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are deploying Webroot security to client sites that have issues with phishing attacks. Users are paying more attention and reporting emails instead of opening them.

"Webroot Security Awareness Training"

What do you like best?

It is easy to deploy, it monitors progress, and it is up to date with the latest information to validate the training provided is accurate.

You can demo this product to a client by activating a trial for it as well with no initial upfront fees for a product.

What do you dislike?

I can honestly say I do not dislike anything.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would honestly advise you try the trial. Once you have done it, you will really start using it on a larger scale and start offering this as a service to your customers if you are in the TSP and MSP market.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As we all know, employees are the best defence in any business. As the "transformation" of IT take place, this is a very important feature to have. Our company have a Training Division and this will very soon part of this division.

It's a great resource to a growing list of tools in Webroot's arsenal.

"Easy and Secure"

What do you like best?

This is a great internet security application. It runs smoothly, doesn't take much space and never interferes with what I need to accomplish.

What do you dislike?

There's nothing to dislike. It's easy to use, run and it protects my ASUS laptop (PC). If you need internet security I would go for WEBROOT - I have tried Kaspersky and was dissatisfied with them, but find this so much better.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This keeps my computer secure and safe from what appears to be countless viruses and other online problems. I also feel confident using sites, which host protected information with this security.

"Easy & Effective Security Training & Phishing Simulation"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of setting up phishing simulations and the ability to report and target training at those users who require it.

What do you dislike?

There are still areas for the product to improve. A broader list of pre-made phishing emails and phishing lure pages would be helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The cost of this product is actually really low - this is a really good value, especially considering the cost of a security breach.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main problem that this solves is a lack of awareness, at the end-user level and even manager level, of security concepts and tactics.

Ease of use to set up and send campaigns. Very simple to analyse the data and the effectiveness of the product for the end users.

What do you dislike?

Can't say that i have seen any as yet. I will evaluate this more thoroughly when i have more experience and feedback from users

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Just use it, it serves its purpose very well and helps users to avoid very costly mistakes

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All about user education and how quickly the threat landscape changes and what everyone has to do to avoid these pitfalls

What do you like best?

Webroot SAT is so easy to set up and in just a few clicks you can be up and running. Even easier use a manage service provider and they can do it all for you!

There's nothing to dislike especially if you use a Managed service provider as they can do it all for you.

Use your local friendly MSP

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

More localised templates would be good for UK customers

"Great Product delivers a fantastic service"

What do you like best?

"Essential tool in the fight against cyber crime"

What do you like best?

The training is easy to setup and use, and it is very much user friendly. Once a user clicks on a simulated phishing attack the message that appears and directs them to the training module is straight-forward

What do you dislike?

There is nothing I can say I dislike except that the cost of the tool is not easy to convince a small business to accept. I feel it is reasonably priced though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of systems being down and data compromised due to user error. The training program has benefited our clients greatly by reducing their support costs.
