BullGuard Internet Security

Keep your PC safe with this must have internet security suite.

ThankYouDogIf there’s one thing that I know and know WELL, it’s that anyone and everyone can get a computer virus or piece of malware. It’s becoming too easy not to pick up a bug, no matter how computer savvy or experienced you are. If you use a Windows PC, as nearly everyone in the universe does, it becomes even more difficult, as most of the viruses in the wild are targeted and attack Windows PC’s specifically. This is the number one reason why I really like apps like BullGuard Internet Security. It’s a suite of security apps that can keep your Windows PC clean as well as protect it from a number of different threats.

BullGuard Internet Security is an all-in-one security suite that guards you, your kids and your PC against ever-evolving malware and cybercrime. The app protects you, your computer and your family from all online threats – identity theft, credit card fraud, hackers, viruses, spyware and much more – thanks to its broad range of features covering nearly every possibility. With BullGuard Internet Security and it’s at-a-glance update system, you will never worry about your digital safety again.

BullGuard Internet Security provides the following, holistic, protection:

Total Protection – its real time scanner can stop intruding malware in its tracks, including viruses, worms, Trojan horses and adware so you can compute without worry. The latest enhancements include better protection against advanced rootkits that can steal control of your computer as well as from ransomware so you’ll never have control of your life stolen from you.

Unwanted Apps – Adware sucks. BullGuard Internet Security stops adware cold in its tracks, protecting your data, your browser settings and search engine preferences.

Advanced Backup – BullGuard Internet Security includes 5GB of free online storage so you can keep all of your data, photos, music and home video off site and safe. You can backup data directly from folders with one click. If you want, you can view data on your computer or even your smartphone. If you have a Dropbox account, you can back up your data directly to it.

Firewall – stop unwanted intrusions from accessing your computer and other resources connected to it.

Spamfilter – stop unwanted junk email and email scams, phishing attempts, viruses and foreign language email from flooding your inbox.

Keeping your computer safe is important. Finding the right application or suite of applications to do it isn’t always easy. To be very honest, there’s a lot of crap out there. However, BullGuard Internet Security is one of the best security suites available on the internet today.

Other suites are often overpriced, bloated or difficult to work with. BullGuard Internet Security is fast, easy to use and provides protection for up to three computers in your home. It can protect your PC from adware, viruses, spam and malware. It can protect your PC from unwanted intrusions.

While its licensing is subscription based, that business model is the industry standard, and for three computers, that breaks down to just $20 per PC per year…and honestly, that’s a small price to pay for peace of mind.

(Son of) The Operating System that Wouldn’t Die

Microsoft extends security update support for Windows XP for an additional 15 months.

securityI’m not surprised, but in a way, I kinda am. It’s like a “B” horror movie from the 1950’s. Windows XP is an operating system that Microsoft desperately wants to kill, but the darn thing just won’t stay dead.

Microsoft announced today that due to customer concerns, it will further extend security update support for Windows XP by an additional 15 months. The new, new end of support/ end of life date for Windows XP is now  2015-07-14.

Its currently estimated that even by THAT time, 10% of all PC’s in medium to large businesses will still be running Windows XP. Microsoft will continue to provide security updates for its anti-malware and security products – System Center Endpoint Protection, Forefront Client Security, Forefront Endpoint Protection, and Windows Intune running on Windows XP as well as for Microsoft Security Essentials.

Users will need to insure that their PC’s remain secure after the  2015-07-14  deadline. That may involve a platform change. That may involve a hardware change. It likely will involve both at this point, if PC’s that fall within this category are intended to remain on main network lines within the organization.

To further help protect these machines that will live in a perpetual Zero-Day threat status after support ends, Microsoft and analysis firm Gartner recommend that IT departments segregate their XP-based PC’s onto a private network. This additional insulation will limit external exposure and prevent XP machines from becoming infected on the wider, more accessible, corporate network.

For Microsoft, the challenge is not continuing support, but helping their channel and other partners move up to more current versions of Windows. Windows XP was never meant to last for 15 years.   Windows 7 – the likely landing spot for those still running XP at this time – will be 6 years old at that time, and likely two or more whole versions back from the current version of Windows (anticipated to be Windows 9). While IT departments do need to just get over it and spend the money required to update their infrastructures, middleware and end points, shareholders need to understand the costs involved and not freak out when their profit margins flatten out due to increased operational charges. It’s at this point that Microsoft’s newest organizational structure and focus could be of help.   If Windows 9 does end up being free, AND if it runs on legacy equipment, it may be a lot easier to afford the required upgrades.

East-Tec Eraser 2014

Keep your private information private with this important Windows utility.

eraser2014-200x175Online privacy is becoming a huge issue. With legislators so willing to give it away or to sell it to the highest paying lobbyist, and with so much malware around trying to steal it, its surprising that consumer computing is as popular as it is. If you want to be online, then you need to do something to protect yourself – over and above using a malware scanner. This is why I really like security applications like East-Tech Eraser 2014. This Windows-based security application could just save your bacon, and your private data.

East-Tec Eraser 2014 is a privacy protection app for Windows that helps secure your personal data, and your offline or online privacy by erasing all files that store evidence of your Internet activities. Over and above that, it helps keep your PC clean by deleting unnecessary data stored on your computer with or without your knowledge.

ETE-01

East-Tec Eraser 2014 can remove your online tracks or internet history. You can delete evidence of the web pages you visited, and pictures you’ve viewed on the Internet. You can remove unwanted cookies, chat room conversations, you can deleted e-mail messages and files, and temporary files. You can even delete the Windows swap file, and clean out the Recycle Bin. The app is a complete file security tool. The best thing about East-Tec Eraser 2014 is that it works with all modern, popular browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, and Safari.

East-Tec Eraser 2014 works with over 250 other online apps like AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, Google Talk, iTunes, WinAmp, Real Player, VLC Player, Skype, Dropbox, and Roxio. It works with Peer2Peer apps like BearShare, LimeWire, BitComet, and uTorrent. It also works with news readers and email apps like Windows Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, and Eudora.

East-Tec Eraser 2014 not only works with online enabled apps, but it works with your Windows operating system by wiping temporary and garbage files that get created by it and your other apps. Not only does this app protect your privacy, but it can speed up your PC as well.

The app is easy to use. The interface has GREATLY improved over the last version, and the price, while higher than I personally would like, is very reasonable, especially for what you’re getting. If you’re looking for a drive/OS utility as well as an online privacy protection app, East-Tec Eraser 2014 is a great choice.

Keep your PC safe with one of the best security app – AVG Internet Security

AVG Internet SecurityComputing is complicated these days. With viruses, worms, phishing and all other kinds of malware out there, keeping your PC clean and your private data private, isn’t easy. That’s why I really like AVG Internet security. It’s a PC antimalware and security app for Windows.

It also prevents the opening or executing of infected files. For your protection, files can be included or excluded from being scanned based on individual file extensions; and can handle exceptions for potentially unwanted programs such as adware.

Norton Internet Security 2012 – one of the best security suites available today against online threats

You’re gonna hear me say this a lot here. Soft32 is serious about security software, and keeping your computer safe from malware. All of our downloads are certified malware free, and you’re going to hear us talk up anti-malware and Internet suites quite a bit. Case in point – Norton and Symantec are synonymous with security and safe computing. This is why we love it for both on Windows and Mac machines.

Norton Internet Security for Windows runs on Windows XP SP 2 or later, Windows Vista SP 1 or later and Windows 7. The Mac versions runs on OS X 10.4.11 to 10.7; and it includes versions 4.x and 5.x so it runs on both Intel and PPC based Macs. Version 5.x is for Intel multi-core processors only. If you have an early Intel based Mac or a PowerPC based Mac, then Version 4 is for you. However, both will provide you with advanced security options and will protect your home network and your data from malware.

NIS protects you while you surf with Norton Safe Web. It proactively protects you while you surf by identifying and blocking unsafe and fake websites right in your search results. However, this feature requires Mac OS X 10.7 if you’re a Mac user. Its anti-phishing technology blocks fraudulent phishing websites trying to steal your identity and your money. Its Smart Two-Way Firewall prevents cybercriminals from hacking into your machine, and from stealing your personal information and messing with your data.

The best thing about NIS is that its location aware. It lets you adjust your level of protection depending upon where you’re using your Mac.  It has settings for at home, the office, the local coffee shop, on the road, etc.

Avira Antivirus 2012 the basic trusted protector

As we already head for the last quarter of 2011, most of the developers have released their products for 2012. Avira Operations GmbH makes no exception and presents their latest security pack including the popular Avira Free Antivirus 2012.

The first visible difference from former Avira programs is actually the name, which has been changed to be easily accepted on international markets. As a result Avira has changed not only a single name, but the names of its entire product line and some of the most important product modules. Also a strong sense of usability can be seen into the new license renewal method. Starting with 2012 release, the product will automatically detect that a new license has been generated and paid for and will then renew its license. The user is notified via email by the product that the license has been renewed and that there is no interaction required.

Avira Internet Security comes with an improved interface with many visual changes that reflect the status of the most critical components you use. The entire status panel has been redesigned in order to allow a fast configuration and control of all options and features. In case of emergency, the casual user will not be bothered with dozens of settings because now Avira can decide what needs to be done to protect the your computer. And this can be done with only one click: Fix problem.

Along with simplicity comes also a decreased resource usage and a much faster initialization because the engine is loaded only once. A lower memory consumption is the result of re-usage and recycling of components that have already been loaded in memory. The integrity of the program has been strengthened in order to resist against targeted malware attacks. This means that Avira Internet Security can function without many registry keys while featuring better protection against process termination, component deletion and many others.

The FireWall included in the Avira Internet Security is now able to filter Ipv6 addresses on the adapter level and also create rules for applications trying to connect over Ipv6. This completes the FireWall solution and assures the customers that even if they use the newest IP protocol they are still protected. Also, the Mail and Web protection components are able to work now in a pure Ipv6 environment.
