How To Use Overrides in Webroot SecureAnywhere?

Overrides basically give administrative control of the files and applications which allows you to designate files as Good or Bad. You can always run the good file and quarantine the bad file. The user can quarantine the legitimate files for business purposes. If in case, Endpoint Protection is quarantining a file which you want to allow, then you can set an override which will ignore the file during scan. In this blog, you will read how to use overrides in Webroot. For details, go to www.webroot.com/safe.

How To Implement Overrides?

If you want to change how a file is detected and managed, then you can apply one of the overrides:

Good — In this, it will always allow the file to run on the endpoint and also it will not detect the file during scans.

Bad — In this, it will always send the file to quarantine if detected during scans.

The user can add overrides from different locations like Overrides Tab, Group Management Tab, Reports Tab and Dwell Time Popup.
