In today’s cyberspace, browsing the internet without an antivirus system to grant your laptop’s security is an unnecessary risk that is definitely not worth taking. Yes, technology has evolved tremendously, but in the same time hackers have developed more and more adaptable and even intelligent viruses, malware and spyware. It doesn’t matter if you have a laptop or a PC , the risks that you are exposed to are virtually the same.
Today’s antivirus systems offer, not only real time scanning and protection, but at the same time they are virtually unnoticeable in terms of system resource consumption. If you are running a medium strength laptop ( take the average case ) then I recommend you to try the ESET antivirus system.
The release was built on the foundation of ESET’s ThreatSense technology for proactive detection of viruses and malicious content, adding 20 new features that improve detection of malicious content and provide advanced diagnostics and repair, while increasing the management options. The new generation continues the ESET tradition of offering maximum security, keeping the fast operation and transparency, with a minimum load of system resources: memory, hard drive and processor.
The new detection and diagnostic features provided by ESET protects consumers from misleading forms that disguise malicious content, analyzing the deep operating system for encrypted files or to transfer the application while navigating the Internet to identify and remove hidden threats. The last generation of ESET antivirus also has a unique system incorporated that prevents and eliminate the threats that are designed to temporarily freeze your antivirus.
The ESET NOD32 Antivirus and the ESET Smart Security Business Editions 4 offer a full range of management features. These include support from a continuously updated, high-level database, configuring advanced security solutions, and even higher level of scalability for large dispersed networks. The business edit also includes the ESET Remote Administrator version 3.9 A in the environment that allows the business version to run a remote installation and configuration.
Another antivirus system worth mentioning is the well-known bitDefender. The 2010 version offers, like the ESET antivirus real time protection form all known and even unknown threats. From my point of view, the main downfall of this antivirus system consists in the fact that it is quite “heavy” when it comes to system resources usage.
In case you are running a top notch laptop system than I think that bit Defender should be your first choice when it comes to your laptop’s security. Anyway, if you own a powerful or a light-weight system it is strongly recommended that you use an antivirus system to ensure your laptop’s security while browsing today’s threat-filled cyberspace. It may seem cheap or expensive, in any case an antivirus solution is a must have if you benefit from an internet connection.11
