I am often asked, "what is the best anti-virus software?" My answer is usually any reputable company that provides full service anti-virus should be fine. Things to look for;

Does it -

  • Provide real-time protection?
  • Provide all-inclusive protection? (viruses, trojans, spyware, worms, rootkits, ransomware, network attacks, adware and web threats)
  • Provide automated non-intrusive scans? (scheduled, email, browser, downloads, files and folders)
  • Work on all my devices? (computers, tablets and phones)
  • Provide a parental mode?
  • Update its threat dictionary at least once a day?
  • Affect my computer performance?
  • Provide 24/7 technical support?

What do I use? For all my devices I currently use McAfee LiveSafe Ultimate. It provides everything that I am looking for in a anti-virus solution.

For my RMM (Remote Mobile Management) Clients I use Comodo. This is part of the package that gets loaded on their computer. This provides total anti-virus protection and remote monitoring. I usually know there is a problem before you do and correct it immediately. It also allows for patch management. Patches are the operating system updates as well as security updates that, unfortunately, many people do not do. If you or your business is interested this server contact me today.

Below is an updated list of reputable anti-virus solutions. If your solution is not on this list contact me today to help migrate you to one of these solutions.
