Guest: You want to know about the Web Threat Shield
Webroot:This solution addresses Webroot SecureAnywhere Business – Endpoint Protection

The Web Threat shield protects your endpoints as users surf the Internet. If it detects a website that might be a threat, it opens an alert for users to block the site or continue despite the warning. When they use a search engine, this shield analyzes all the links on the search results page, then displays an image next to each link that signifies whether it's a trusted site, indicated by a green checkmark, or a potential risk, indicated by a red X.
