by | May 27, 2021 | service guide

Cyberattacks have become commonplace today. Whether it’s your personal email and phone, or servers at your workplace, nothing is safe anymore. Investing in a good antivirus can act as the first line of defense against these attacks and protect your systems from malware, ransomware, and other content with malicious intent.

This article has some tips to help you choose the right software for your antivirus. Read on to find out more.

Check for reviews

This is the first and foremost step into selecting your antivirus. Check all the reviews of all the software that you are looking at for your antivirus and then create a list of shortlisted candidates. Real user reviews will help you determine how effective the antivirus is and whether it is worth the investment.

Decide level of protection

Obviously you need to choose an antivirus that protects you from all the major threats. These include malware, ransomware, phishing attacks, and other scams such as pharming. Your antivirus should have protection that will block these attacks from entering your servers, your email, and your network in general.

Some of the other features that come with an antivirus software include protection from threats over the world wide web. The antivirus comes with features like scanning your downloads for threats, blocking unnecessary ads or malicious content, preventing pages from loading that might have threats, and more.

There are different levels of protection and security, and you should check in with your selected antivirus service provider to see which ones match your needs, as well as check for the level of effectiveness they provide in terms of security.

Paid or unpaid antivirus?

There are a lot of big antivirus companies that provide basic security measures to block malware on your systems for free, so free does not always mean bad, and paid does not always mean better. Look at all your options for both paid and unpaid antivirus services before making your choice.

What do you do for maximum security?

In case you need maximum level security from attacks and need to protect all your data, you could try a bundled VPN service. They give you an added layer of security online so your information can stay protected. Privacy is key to security today, and a VPN can ensure all your information stays private at all times.

The internet is a lot less secure than we think it is, and it has become a necessity to invest some time and energy to find the right antivirus for all our systems. If you find it cumbersome to do your own research in the endless sea of information called the internet, you can always find cybersecurity companies and agencies who can give you a free consultation to assess your assets which are at risk and actionable steps you can take. There is really no excuse to not be cyber safe!
