Webroot has announced an addition to its security software line-up: Webroot Internet Security Essentials.

Webroot Internet Security Essentials provides antivirus and antispyware protection alongside a two-way firewall, disk cleanup and local file backup capabilities.

The company is also updating its antivirus program. Version 6.0 of its AntiVirus with AntiSpyware and Spy Sweeper products will provide enhanced protection against viruses, spyware and other malicious programs. Existing Webroot customers will receive the newest version of their product at no charge.

All three programs offers users free online backup space, which can be expanded if necessary and will be given to current AntiVirus with AntiSpyware and Spy Sweeper customers for no extra charge. Other new features in the three security programs include the ability to schedule automatic file backups online and a Gamer Mode for uninterrupted protection while gaming or watching movies.

Webroot Internet Security Essentials, Webroot AntiVirus with AntiSpyware and Webroot Spy Sweeper software will be available in November priced at £39.95, £24.95 and £19.95 respectively.
