Choosing The Best Internet Security Software Suite PDF Print E-mail

Some rules are Golden, not to ever be forgotten because they always apply. Always to get used and recognised because they guide us and point out our coordinates and keep us on point, moving in the proper direction. Whatever task you undertake, whatever goal you aspire to, you'll encounter Golden Rules to guide you, you simply need to find them.

Here are the golden rules, the 5 best ones for choosing the <b>best Internet security software suite</b>.

Golden Rule # 1, obviously, check that it has an anti-malware component. The explanation for that is malicious software that enters your PC unnoticed can cause harm or result in you losing data or other sensitive data, like passwords etc stolen. Remember, internet security software should be able to detect malware (i.e. viruses, spyware) instantly and either remove or isolate them quickly.

Golden Rule # 2, a firewall is there to block unauthorised communication to or from the internet. This can affect you in the foreseeable future because if a 'trojan' does enter your system and locates your bank details say, the firewall will prevent the information leaving your system. It provides a second layer of security beside the antivirus features. Be sure and don't forget that if you have a router, this could already have a built in firewall. This might be adequate, but may not have the features and controls that internet security software firewalls provide.

Golden Rule # 3, anti-phishing software is a must for most people. Phishing is one of the most successful hacker tactics for extracting information or money from normally wary people. Why you will want to have this depends whether you can spot the difference between a legitimate email from, for example, your bank and one that merely looks similar to an email from your bank. Not spotting the difference could cost you your savings or identity - giving you a major headache to put matters right again.

Golden Rule # 4, anti-spam software is very useful if you rely on Microsoft Outlook or another email client. You may accomplish this by actually 'training' it to recognise which emails are junk and which aren't. It takes a little time, but the amount of spam emails landing in your inbox will drop.

Golden Rule # 5, a data backup feature is very handy, and is something that many people never think they will need. This can include, depending on the brand you purchase, online backup storage - essentially, your backup is stored 'offsite' by the software company and is safe from any disaster that may befall your house or office. It is important because it means that you can at least get your PC up and running again should your house burn down or be destroyed by earthquake!

When it comes to the best Internet security software, picking just one product is a tough call, and actually impractical. More importantly, if your computer and personal details are to be properly protected, you will need to find an effective antivirus package, a firewall and an anti spyware program. The good news is that you can actually locate the very best products in each category, some of them absolutely free.

Let's look at some of the best Internet security software products in each category:

Anti virus

Kaspersky Anti virus is probably the best known and most popular antivirus software. It's not free, but is highly effective. Basically, you install this security software and let it do its behind-the-scenes work. It runs in the background, protecting your computer from attacks of viruses and hackers. You can forget about it and let the software do its job; if it comes up against a new web site or a request to download information, it will warn you of a possible threat and ask how you want to handle it.

Therefore, be careful what you say "yes" to when configuring it; all Internet security software is only as good as the rules and how you configure them. Let too many types of files through, and you have only yourself to blame if your computer becomes infected.

Firewall

Zone Alarm has been the firewall most often chosen as some of the best in its class for a few years. It has a free version, and you can pay to update it for full functionality. This firewall "learns" as it goes along, so you need to be careful what you click when you are given options for how to deal with new programs or attempts to access your computer.

Once set up, Zone Alarm works in the background; you should schedule regular full system scans with this Internet security software to identify threats and clear your whole computer disk and memory of virus and security threats.

Anti spyware

In looking for great security software, you can't leave out anti spyware if you want your computer to be properly protected. You can use more than one anti spyware product at a time, unlike with firewalls or antivirus protection, where you have to limit your use to just one.

Spybot Search and Destroy and Spyware Terminator, as well as having great sci-fi names, work well together and deserve their place among the best security options because they eliminate the vast majority of spyware which leaves your personal details and computer vulnerable to those with malicious intent.

So, picking just one example of best Internet security software is not an option when you really need to seek the best firewall, antivirus and antispyware software.
