When business owners come across a data breach it usually costs them a staggering 3.9 million dollars on average. This doesn’t mean that if you don’t own a business, then you are safe. Data breaches on PCs can cost several thousands of dollars as well, due to file ransoms, ID theft and so on. That is why you need to have a proper protection layer against malware.
AVG Internet Security
You are probably looking for something that provides great security but that also comes with a great interface. Unfortunately, the latest internet security bundle from AVG lacks a little bit in the usability department but it more than makes up for it with the incredible way of handling security.
Norton Security Premium
Norton has been the biggest title of top malware protection since 1990. The reasons of its survival and dominion are pretty simple. Norton comes out regularly with robust protection solutions that are lightweight enough so that you can easily incorporate them into your digital life.

Panda Dome Premium

In terms of the malware protection industry, we can say that Avast is pretty popular up and comer. It looks beautiful with its stylish design and it performs well as well and with its $80 price tag, it is really a competitor for the likes of AVG.
