Hello,

If you are dealing with a determined adversary, such as a nation-state, then you had better have multiple layers of defense, i.e. a policy of defense-in-depth using multiple technologies and processes. Anti-malware software is an important tool in that layer, but it is only one of many.

Regards,

Aryeh Goretsky

Your antivirus software probably won't prevent a cyberattack :angry:

Although I use Avast free because I can't afford a sub at the moment the evidence I've seen suggests Kaspersky is still top dog

Btw your poll is fubard, you have to select both 1 option in the original and extended list.

Back to topic, I've always been recommending Kaspersky to people since I first started using it 9 years ago. It'd been nothing but a breath of fresh air and not exaggerating but I've been virus free in all this time and it has blocked quite a fair few things.


Kaspersky is a very good product. I used to use it but then I changed to Avast AIS as it was 1/2 the price and it does a great job for me.

+1 to this. I've been using KIS (Kaspersky internet security) for more than two years now, and never regretted I purchased the program or renewals.

I've been a customer of ESET for, well, a very long time. I did however try Norton Antivirus 2013 just because everyone was raving about it. (Despite my nightmares of Norton during the 90s and early 00s.) I must admit that I' was thoroughly impressed by the program itself - it was extremely lightweight and scanned very quickly. However, I can't tell if it's good or bad because I never get a virus.

After a few days I went back to good old NOD32 because it feels better, I can't explain why, and because of the GUI. Long Live, I guess.

bitdefender has most up to date and biggest virus databases
and offline updates are also available easily
using it for 3 years never faced any kind of problem what so ever

Norton once again this year, I really cannot fault it. It doesn't affect performance at all, the UI is good and it updates silently.

norton, symantec corporate and mcafee allegedly have govt backdoors built into them.

 

I use bitdefender 2014, got a 943 day key free off a forum, love it. Kaspersky is also great, those 2 nearly always come 1st or 2nd in antivirus tests.

you can *always* get 3-user KIS for <$20, if not on sale at your neighbourhood brick and mortar store, then on Amazon often for ~$10-ish but pretty much always available for ~$20. Hard to beat that price. No need to get the latest edition, any of the most recent 3 will work just download the installer.
