What is your go-to internet security/antivirus solution?
With so many small businesses relying more and more on the internet these days, I was wondering what internet security and antivirus solutions (e.g. Kaspersky, Norton, etc.) people were using. What features do you look for in your internet security software? If you recently changed services, why did you end up making the switch?
Why not just go with Windows Defender/Windows Security. While it may not have the very lightest resource footprint, it is far from the heaviest. It has also been in the top tier of security suites for several years running from multiple third-party testing evaluations.
I used to use several of the major 3rd party antivirus/security suite products including, at various times, AVG, Avast, and Panda Cloud [and for light footprint I'd go with Panda], but given how drastically Windows Defender/Security has improved since the introduction of Windows 10 I just don't see the point anymore. Even i was reading a detailed comparison between Avast and Windows defender and WD is simply a very good option and can fullfill most of the security requirements.
Cyber security is not just installing Norton or Kaspersky or ESET... That's what many IT companies recommend, but ask them if their clients are getting hacked. There is MUCH more to consider today. That's why we have put together a security software stack that works together provides strengths from one software to cover weaknesses for another. Our solution is installed on each computer so it doesn't matter where the individual is working, they're ALWAYS protected.
We provide Reactive defensed, Proactive defenses, Network defenses, Vulnerability defenses, Web defenses, and 24/7/365 Security monitoring to keep your computers safe. So what's the difference? Not one of our clients have suffered a successful cyber attack since we rolled out our security solution 2014. Now, we're working on adding an EDR (Endpoint Detection and Response) solution to the current solution for even more protection.

They all pretty much do the same thing. If your OS comes with one i.e. Windows Defender just keep that updated. The best thing you can do is be very careful about how you click links and use a VPN as well to make things a little more difficult.
Windows 10 won’t hassle you to install an antivirus like Windows 7 did. Since Windows 8, Windows now includes a built-in free antivirus called Windows Defender. But is it really the best for protecting your PC–or even just good enough?
Windows Defender was originally known as Microsoft Security Essentials back in the Windows 7 days when it was offered as a separate download, but now it’s built right into Windows and it’s enabled by default. Many people have been trained to believe that you should always install a third-party antivirus, but that isn’t the best solution for today’s security problems, like ransomware.
What you need is a great team: Malwarebytes + Windows Defender
