The best internet security suite doesn't exist. That's for everybody to consider what's the best solution. The only thing I can tell you what I use, my expe-
rience with the product and what I think about it. From other Forum members you will get info about the many products on the market but at the end it's just your choice. I have good experience with Avira. I have installed the Free version on computers of two of my family members which I maintain with re-
mote support by TeamViewer. It works good, isn't difficult to use. I myself use Avira Premium Security Suite. For me it's excellent and works flexible. The price at the moment is 39 euro anually. I consider it worth the money. New cutomers are allowed a free trial period of 30 days with full functionality. Hope this helps you but my advice is: read the comments of other Forum members carefully.

Hello nishikai,

Welcome to the Secunia forum.

Definition: An internet security suite is a bundled set of security programs, usually by one vendor, usually not free.

This should include: a firewall, antivirus, and anti-spyware.

Other options may be provided within that suite, depending on the protection level and cost of the program.

The benefit(s) of purchasing such a suite are threefold:

>Greater compatibility of such programs as they are made and distributed by the same vendor.
>Vendor support, when needed, is easier to get when you need it.
>Updates to the suite will come in when offered.

There are additional programs, not trial programs, one should consider, along with whatever final choice, of a security suite.

One of the most reliable and necessary programs is Sandboxie.

I wish to stress this is not an advertisement to all other members of the Secunia forum.

It is merely a suggestion to aid nishiakai in his search for the best security suite for his/her needs.

It is free, but there is an option to upgrade. It protects your browser of choice when surfing on the Internet, and any malware downloaded (by accident, of course) will be deleted when the browser is closed for the current session.

Be sure to set Sandboxie to delete the current sandbox box, when the browser is closed, automatically.

The link is here:

http://www.sandboxie.com/

Note that there is a 64-bit beta version now available.

Your final decision really comes down to researching the Internet for the best possible suite that meets your current needs.

I run a security suite running with many different vendors; all of them are free.

Hi nishikaj,

If you Googled 'best internet security suite'
you'd get over 29 million responses-so no easy task.
I personally like & have used ESET for several years,
but I know in my family there are at least 4-5 other
programs that are popular & according to their
respective users are 'the best'.

I suggest you use the option of many of the vendors
& download their 'trial' version. That way you can
get a real feel for the features & benefits of the
various programs available before you spend any money.

The main thing to remember regarding security for
your system is-you-it all starts there. Practice
safe surfing habits & take the time to do updates &
periodic maintenance. Remember, the only way
to never get spam, a virus, trojan, or malware is
to not connect to the internet.

The last line in my signature is not a slam to anyone-
just a simple 'think about it'.

Regards, wr

Hi ,

If you check the web , you will find many reviews , for example :-

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2369749,00.as...

These are not "independent" as they usually rely on advertising normally , so take that into account .

The best suite is the one you know , love and understand how to use , even better if it keeps the bad guys out . Rankings change each year , but recently Norton has performed as well as , if not better than most and the best are very similar .

Changing on a whim is likely to expose youreslf to danger unless you are au fait with the latest technology as offered by the vendors ; if you are asking for advice here , then maybe you are not .

My advice would be you stick with what you already have and know best (in your case Norton) , updated to the latest 2011/2012 version , until/unless someone can demonstrate to you a better option and always demand a free trial before you buy anything .

Please note I do not use or promote any Symantec/Norton products .

Take care

Anthony

For what it is worth, my best luck has been with ESET. I had Norton for awhile and didn't like it at all. I was either doing something wrong or it's not a good product. Since using ESET on all our computers at our home, we haven't had one incident of computers crashing as a result of viruses, etc. Not so with Norton.

I dont think there is. If your security software has been properly configured, it would serve as a very effective security. But let's remember that no security software could protect your computer if you yourself is not careful with the emails you receive and websites you go to.

I think the best solution to this is too stay offline... just kidding. I have not tried all internet security suites available so I donít which one is the best but we have wide choices like GData, Symantec, BitDefender, Panda, AVG, Comodo and many others. Choosing the best depend on our needs perhaps.

Personally, I have had no trouble with Avast or AVG. Frankly just from my experience, the expensive suites are no better than the less expensive. Though as has already been pointed out it is a matter of user preference. If you are comfortable with Norton then maybe the old cliche would work here,"If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Well first you have to know your level of knowledge and 2nd if you want to pay or go with a free program i go with the free because i don't have any money and i feel some of the free ones are better then the paid versions. And i founld the paid versions seem to be on the heavy side that can bog your pc a bit. First i like to add with out good safety pratice no antivirus program, no matter how good it is can still leave you at risk for a virus. Well here's some of the top free ones that are very easy to use and unerstand they are MSE and PANDA CLOUD. Here are a few that many people feel are the best out there , my favorite is AVAST and to many AVG and AVIRA. They require a little bit more hands on but pretty easy to figure out ,there's many more but i think you can't go wrong with any of these. Good Luck.....And Good Karma to all.

I have tried Norton-Avast-System Mechanics and a few others and none of them can come close to matching "Microsoft Security Essentials" ,I have had a virus come in my email and it let me know right then and there with a pop up window, it don't slow down your computer or take up a lot of memory and the best of all it is FREE to down load from Microsoft, it has every thing the others do like fire wall -anti virus and then some, so try it what have you to lose it's FREE!
