Cybercriminals change their tactics constantly. You need a complete virus protection in order to guard yourself against most recent threats. A good antivirus program can identify, scan and eliminate viruses and trojan horses, worms, and spyware. Certain programs also provide additional security options, like a virtual private network as well as parental controls, password management and security against phishing.

Antivirus software must also protect against keyloggers and rootkits which secretly record everything you type on your keyboard — including passwords and credit card numbers. It should also guard against ransomware that can take over your computer and hold files hostage unless you pay a ransom.

The most reliable antivirus software has a high rate of detection of malware that is known and is consistently rated well in independent testing laboratories. A good security suite will also include additional security features, such as a heuristic-based detection system that looks for the kinds of behaviour that viruses tend to display. It should also have security features like firewalls, and some software offer sandboxing, which lets you run suspicious programs in a safe environment where they are not able to cause harm.

A reputable antivirus program updates often, typically once or twice a day. It should work with many devices, including PCs, Macs, smartphones and smart homes. The price for antivirus programs can vary, with some offering low beginning rates. Some antivirus applications charge monthly or annually, while others charge per device. The price of an antivirus program needs to be apparent in the number and types of devices it covers and how frequently updates are and how easy to use, and what additional security features it has.
