What is the BEST anti-virus software?
Here is the dirty little secret, NONE of the anti-virus software companies are 100% effective. You could be completely updated and still get a virus. Most anti-virus vendors add 10,000+ virus / malware signatures (definitions) every day. If you are one of the lucky ones to get the virus first, you can be infected. Based on this information, it is important to choose the vendors who have shown consistent performance in both blocking and cleaning viruses.
CCW Technology believes that anti-virus vendors should be evaluated on a number of criteria.
Historical (Past) detection rates
Performance (Slow down of your computer)
Cost (Yearly and per PC)
Free vs. Paid: Some vendors provide free versions, often times these free versions have limited functionality. Limited updates (checking once per day), for example. Some ISP's (Internet Service Providers) give their customers FREE anti-virus suites. Sometimes what the ISP chooses for you may not be the best solution. ISP's are in business to make money, and sometimes who they partner with comes down to how it affects their profit margins.
Anti-virus vs "Security Suite": Most security suites nag the user with pop-ups to approve or deny items in the firewall. Security suites add complexity and cost, and in our opinion offers very little (if any) protection over Windows Firewall.
Why expose your system by limited updates or poor protection when the cost of protection is less than $5.00 per month? Reduce the likelihood of infection by making a good choice when it comes to anti-virus software.
