First class suite for your security needs
on 18 July 2010
Ok, first of all I want to say that I have written a number of reviews about security suites and anti-virus programs in the past and generally I do prefer free solutions...simply because they are free and usually just as effective as paid for products.
This product is different in one key way. It offers the excellent Acronis backup facility...this means you can backup an entire hard drive partition such as your Windows partition, making it possible to revert back to the exact state of your PC at any time..and best of all it keeps this backup updated quickly and easily. I cannot fault this side of the product at all.
The security/antivirus/firewall side off the program is actually pretty good...seems to run on my machines at a decent speed and doesnt hog too many resources. That said however (oh yes) I still prefer the free options, they tend to use less resources, they are free and they are just as good.
As a full security suite, this one offers that little bit more, so in that regard it really is an excellent program, but personally, I think I would buy the standalone Acronis backup utility and stick with the free security options.
Overall an excellent product if you are in the market for an all in one security suite with extras...but if you just want standard internet security....save your money
