Protecting your home computers and your home network is absolutely vital and the more tech that we bring into our homes, the greater the need is for proper protection. If you think about the things that you use your computers for at home such as online banking, storing personal information such as passwords, private photos and even the conversations that we have via email and messenger services, you can begin to see just how dangerous it would be if that information fell into the wrong hands. Each year we see new and improved security software and Adam Ferrari is here with us to round up the best offerings of 2019.
Kaspersky Total Security
Kaspersky is a well known and respected software provider and they have had some of the best security software over the last couple of years. This Total Security suite was arguably one of the best from the last 12 months and it has a starting cost of $35 which can rise to $50 depending on how many devices you want to protect. The seating price will allow you to protect 3 devices and the $50 price will give you up to 5 devices. This suite provides you with security scanning, backup and encryption, password manager and parental controls, as well as a handy VPN which will give you untraceable browsing.
Bitdefender Total Security Multi-Device
Bitdefender is also another company which ranks well in terms of the software that it produces and their 2019 version of Toal Security is one of the best of 2019. It is the speed of the product which we love most and on top of this you will get security options for both your home computers and your mobile devices. For just $34 per year you can count on secure browsing, ransomware protection and you can use the software on up to 5 devices.
Macafee Live Safe
A list like this wouldn’t be complete without mentioning one of Macafee’s products, a leading company in their field. Live Safe is a great option and whilst it is the most expensive on this list at $94 per year, the benefits of what you get with this suite more than match up with the price tag. This user friendly suite features parental controls, password protection, website scanning as well as identity protection and anti-spam features. On top of this Macafee actually guarantee the product to be 100% efficient at removing viruses and if it isn’t able to then you will get your money back. The product can be used on an unlimited number of devices and it will also be able to protect smartphones and tablets as well as your home PC or laptops.
There isn’t much to split the three products by our favorite from the last year has to be the Macafee Live Safe, which is one of the most powerful and user friendly security suites on the market right now.
