With the amount of antivirus products on the market, it makes it a very difficult decision to find the one to suit your needs.
A couple of decades ago, it was fine for a good antivirus to protect your system, but technology has moved on considerably since then, you now need protection against Cybercrime and Ransomware to name just of a couple of threats, plus, unfortunately, there are many more.
For your antivirus security to be good today, it must have a good all-inclusive protection from threats such as Viruses, Trojans, Worms, Spyware, Rootkits, Ransomware, Adware, Network attacks and Web threats.
Another ‘layer’ of your antivirus protection when choosing it , would be good to include VPN (Virtual Private Network) We all use public Wi-Fi nowadays in cafés, airports etc, but these can hold risks, so VPN will give you protection when using public networks.
To most of us un-technically minded, most of these threats are unknown to us, but each one holds a severe risk from harming your system and stealing your personal data, which ultimately is going to you cost money.
This is why it is extremely important to choose a product you can rely on, a product that will evolve with the on-going threats and keeps up to date with protection. A product that is simple to use, and for the majority of us who are novices, a product that you can install and leave to let it do its job.
