If your budget is small and you do not want to shell out money on an antivirus program, you might start by looking into the following six free products as tested by PC World: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition, Avast Free Antivirus, Panda Cloud Antivirus, Avira Free Antivirus, Microsoft Security Essentials and PC Tools AntiVirus Free.
However, remember that free software packages will not give you everything that the paid versions do. Most free software programs offer no technical support if you run into issues, and their software is third rate as compared to the paid versions. Most of these companies even have a paid antivirus product which they will try to steer you into once you get into issues with their free software. Some of the free software security programs download software such as toolbars and popups so they can easily spam you with that company’s advertising. So essentially, they are getting you to download their advertising program, all at the expense of your Cyber Security!
A secret that these companies hide from you is that a real solid Cyber Security solution, which they deploy for large enterprises, requires thousands of dollars of server hardware, top of the line client software, and frequent management by a professional IT staff. Another secret in the Cyber sSecurity industry is that over 80% of viruses, malwares, trojans and other internet nasties sneak into your computer around the anti-virus software. They take advantage of security holes in your operating system, common programs and third party software such as Java, Adobe, Microsoft and Apple software. Enterprise level antivirus solutions resolve these issues by using additional antivirus servers and more IT resources to manage the solution.
All of this is daunting for home, office and business users. How can you get real Cyber Security at the lowest possible cost? Free antivirus solutions do not give you real security, but advertise to you and help you pretend that your security is taken care of. Conventional enterprise Cyber Security solutions are too expensive for businesses under 100 employees to even consider. So what is the answer?
Thanks to advances in technology, the answer is here. For the first time, you as a home, office, or small business user can get access to enterprise level Cyber Security software, but at a similar price point as home internet security software. Even better, you do not need to deploy a massive amount of expensive antivirus servers or hire your own dedicated IT team to manage the servers and your computers’ Cyber Security.
