Webroot Global Site Manager

Once the email arrives login to your Webroot Global Site Manager (Webroot Global Site Manager link and the automatically generated password are included in the email). Fill in the registration form and press “Confirm” button.

Webroot Global Site Manager

To start using Webroot SecureAnywhere Protection for your devices, you will need to create a site. A site will enable you to easily find and manage your devices. A site can be a business, a location within a business, or a collection of devices you want managed together. You can create just a single site or multiple sites depending on how you wish to manage your protected devices.

Press “Add Site” button and follow the steps.

Add Site

Enter the Site (Customer) details. Click next and review the Site Permissions. Then click Next and review Settings. For Default Policy you can use the Recommended Defaults policy or if you created a new policy (see Creating Policies step) you can select it here by clicking on the dropdown button.

Press Finish button. Once the Site is created get the Site Key Code. You will need this Site Key Code when deploying the Pulseway Antivirus Webroot Engine.

Creating Policies

You can add policies in one of two ways: either by creating a new policy or by copying an existing policy as a starting point.

On the Webroot Global Site Manager click on Global Settings tab. You can use one of the predefined policies (Recommended Defaults, Recommended Serve Defaults, Silent Audit or Unmanaged) or you can create new policy by clicking on the “Add” button.

Creating Policies

In the Create Policy window, enter a policy name and description, then click the Create Policy button. Locate your new policy in the Policy tab. Double-click the policy you just created to view and modify the settings.

Creating Policies

Note: Your changes do not take effect until you promote them.

If you are ready to implement the changes, click the Save Draft Changes button, then click the Promote Draft Changes to Live button.
