“Spy Sweeper [Enterprise 3.0] impressed judges as an anti-spyware tool largely because of Webroot Software's dedication to spyware research,” said SearchWindowsSecurity.com editors. “Though its competitors in the category boasted a variety of functions, none were able to match Spy Sweeper's effectiveness at finding and removing spyware.

Products were selected based on innovation, performance, ease of integration into existing environments, ease of use and manageability, functionality and value.
