Webroot vs ESET NOD32

Calling all security Experts!

I wanted to know your opinion on which antivirus is better between Webroot and ESET NOD32.

Looking for real-world experience with either or both.

To be deployed in Windows environments typically 100-300 users in size.

Virus Bulletin is showing ESET winning many of the tests: https://www.virusbtn.com/

Thanks.

I haven't compared it to webroot,  but NONE of our machines running ESET software have ever been infected.  We have about 200 XP endpoints and about 100 windows 7 endpoints. Or institution had just renewed their contact with symantec,  not sure why,  which leaves another 9000 computers protected with that (and they are hit often).

Ah good to know. Well that's a nod to ESET! That is also the same experience we have had as well - ESET is really good and solid.

Thanks.
