The Top 10 Internet Security Programs 2012
Are you looking to protect your PC, laptop or netbook? Do you want more than just antivirus protection? If so, you’ll be wanting a complete internet security suite.
There are many bonuses to buying an internet security suite as opposed to a standalone antivirus program. Some examples of the extra features you will gain if you spend a few extra dollars on your security are -
- a firewall
- antispam protection
- protection against dodgy links in search engines
- identity theft protection
Most of the above are fairly common features in internet security programs these days but many vendors add in other useful additions that are unique to their products. In fact, I expect all of the companies I will be looking at to try and outdo each other, as well as improve on their 2011 offerings.
I will be reviewing internet security products from the following companies as they are released over the next few months. So keep popping back as I will add more on a regular basis -
2012 Internet Security Reviews
Now that I’ve finished my reviews for this year you are probably wondering which suite I think is best?
Well, there is no simple answer to that question. There are many factors that you have to consider when buying a security suite -
- how do you use your computer
- what sort of web sites do you visit
- do you do online banking on the machine you are looking to protect
- how fast is your computer
- do you have some computer skill or do you need your hand held
- and many more
That said, a couple of programs do rise to the top this year – BitDefender definitely excels but needs a reasonably good computer to run on. And F-Secure offers all round protection without bringing your computer to a standstill.
Which one of the above did you choose for 2012?
