In today’s connected world, it’s vital to keep your computer, network and data secure against cyber threats and attacks. Gone are the days where you needed only basic antivirus software for your computer. You now need to be vigilant against viruses, worms, trojans, ransomware, spyware, hackers, fraud and other online dangers. Our buying guide shows you just how crucial internet security software is, and what you should look for.
Antivirus software provides basic protection and only targets viruses it is familiar with. Most antivirus software now feature real-time updates to scan and protect your PC against current viruses. However, they may not protect you against other online threats and attacks.
Internet security software provides more comprehensive protection against multiple threats including viruses, malware, spyware and phishing. It prevents and neutralises viruses and malware, protects your identity online and safeguards online transactions. Some internet security software automatically back up your data to cloud storage so you have a copy in case of an attack or accidental loss.
When choosing internet security software, determine the kind of protection you need.
Internet security software for home use is designed to block and remove viruses, avoid spam, provide parental control and more.
Internet security software for businesses is designed to monitor web browsing, block spam and fraudulent emails, prevent phishing, secure employees’ usernames and passwords, and much more. You can protect multiple business devices with a single activation key.
To ensure you purchase the correct software, consider the following factors.
Check the number of devices you need to protect – this includes computers, tablets and smartphones.
Check the operating system requirements to ensure compatibility. This is especially important with multi-device software – ensure that the features are compatible with all the devices you want to protect and the platform they run on: Windows, Mac, iOS or Android.
