Internet users are in danger of experiencing cyber threats daily and it is important to use Antivirus software. There are many options out there and from all of them users can chose one based on important features which should be taken into consideration.

Malware protection

More and more cyber bullies try to threaten users with compromising their personal information and data. A good antivirus detects, removes the danger and protects the PC from further attacks.

Software scanning

Most antivirus software asks users to perform PC scans on a regular basis. There are on-access and on-demand scans. On-access scans are responsible for real-time protection; it examines files upon access and on-demand scans perform system scans to identify potential dormant malware.

More protection

Besides scanning and protecting PCs, antivirus software also performs website rating to indicate whether they are safe to use or not. With the help of malicious URL blocking, users are prevented from connecting to sites which are notorious for hosting malware. This is also effective against DNS hijacks attempting to redirect users to fake website.

There are premium or standard versions of antivirus software. The premium ones offer full security suites and also mobile (Android, iPhone) protection, virtual keyboards so that hackers cannot capture keystrokes, cleanup tools, parental control and secure browsers. Parental control limits the content children can access and it also limits the browsing time. Secure browser offer extra safeguards to ensure that the PC is protected against new malware created.
