When you buy a computer it comes with an antivirus program preinstalled. The antivirus program that is on the computer is not because it is the best. It usually depends on cost or commission paid to the manufacturer. This means that your brand new computer probably isn’t as safe as you think it is.
Choosing an Internet protection system today is one of the most important things we do. Stop to think about all of the different ways that your computer and your personal information are at risk. The type of things we do online is increasing everyday.
- Filling out job applications and resume information
- Online Banking
- Online Shopping and Store Purchases
These are just some of the reasons Internet protection is important. When your computer is not safe the amount of information you expose to the world is scary.
Today’s Job Search Process
No matter the type of job you apply for today, whether it is McDonald’s or Boeing the application process is an online process. Personal information transferred from your computer to their network. Most companies provide a secure connection for the transfer of personal information.
When your computer has been compromised the secure connection offers little or no protection. Your personal information is available for the world to see. With the type of information about you that goes into a standard employment application everything needed to steal your identity is available in one place.
Choosing the Right Internet Protection Can Be Complicated
There are a lot of things that have to be considered when choosing how to protect your computer. Normal virus and malware protection methods scan incoming files to see if they are a threat. These programs will also test files that are about to run on your computer. These types of protection programs are often two dimensional in the type of protection they provide.
Emsisoft uses a three dimensional approach to keep you safe.
1 ) Web Surfing Protection
When you think of the Internet you usually think websites. Malicious or fake websites have become one of the favorite methods used by people trying to do something bad. A lot of malware is distributed through a website to those that are unfortunate enough to visit.
Phishing websites look like websites of legitimate companies. When you visit one of these websites and provide personal information you are giving malicious people access to your personal information and accounts. Emsisoft uses a database of already known unsafe websites to protect you.
2) Dual-engine File Guard
When a threat attempts to access your computer through email, vulnerabilities, or downloads Emsisoft uses their own file scanner in combination with the file scanner of BitDefender. Whenever a file is new or altered it is tested with this scanning dual-engine before it is allowed to run on your computer. This prevents any old or new files from damaging your computer.
3) Behavior Analysis and Blocker
The web surfing protection and dual-engine file guard stops almost 100% of existing malware. These requite knowledge of the malware to be effective. When a file attempts to run using methods similar to malicious malware they are stopped. Emsisoft then asks you whether to allow the file to continue running. This gives Emsisoft the ability to prevent unknown malware.
