Security suites: Choosing the best one for you
The old days of straightforward antivirus software packages are gone — victim of a changing threat scene in which the dangers are more complex than ever and come from multiple sources.
No longer are viruses and Trojans the only risks. Today you can also be victimized by phishing attacks, spyware, privacy invasions, social media scams and the possibility of losing your mobile device.
To complicate matters even further, most of us commonly use multiple devices, frequently with different operating systems. I’m a perfect case of that: My computing arsenal includes a Windows desktop PC, a MacBook Air, two Windows-based Surface tablets, two iPads, an iPhone and a Google Nexus 7 Android tablet.
