In today’s world, internet security is extremely important when it comes to protecting our devices. Over the last decade of working in the information technology field, I have been exposed to using many security solutions that were below average at best to defending against threats. I’ve noticed, especially in a corporate environment, businesses are used to the popular and comfortable big names like Norton and McAfee. In my opinion, just because you have a well known name, doesn’t necessarily mean they are the best solution. Two months ago I moved to a new place of employment which is currently being protected with Norton Symantec’s Endpoint.

This was enough to show me that Kaspersky can help defend a persons machine no matter how negligent they are when it comes to web browsing and possible dangerous files being opened or install on their machine. This helped spark my faith in Kaspersky’s service, and it will continue to do so until it shows me otherwise.
If you’re looking for a security solution for your machine, I would advise very heavily on subscribing for their product. They have very fair pricing too. $60.00 a year will cover up to 3 PC’s in your home. That’s $20.00 a year for all 3 machines. I’d say that’s very good pricing to eliminate headaches to have your equipment replaced. Especially if you’re paying to have someone do it. The cost could become very extensive over the course of the year if you’re a heavy
