Anti-Viruses

Sometimes it`s necessary to point out specific products. This is a great time to address the question of viruses and malware fighting. Get yourself a good physical firewall and make sure your computers are running an anti-virus. Listeners and clients ask me what anti-virus software I use and/or recommend.

If you need a quick check of your systems I`ve compiled a list for you (in no particular order):

  1. Microsoft Safety Scanner (http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner)
  2. Eset Online Scanner (http://www.eset.com/us/online-scanner)
  3. Malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org)

I usually recommend and resell:

  1. AVG (http://www.avg.com) – Note: AVG have a nice management console for Business environments.They now offer a cloud based solution as well.

.

These are the ones that I found worked well. Protection from any or all of these may not protect you from all possible viruses or intrusions. I can`t guarantee the same success that I`ve experienced with them.
