M&A docs management

The best antivirus software can assist you in keeping your devices secure from ransomware, malware and phishing. It also protects against spyware that snoops on your browsing history and passwords, and can stop data breaches from affecting your personal data. There are many different packages available, and a majority of them cost more than you’d prefer to pay.

We’ve tested more than 300 of them in order to find the most effective virus protection for the budget. We sought out software that is easy to use and durable, yet protects you without slowing your computer down or forcing you to stop using it. We’ve also ensured that the software updates its malware database regularly.

The best packages provide an entire suite of anti-malware tools, along with additional features such as a VPN as well as password managers and parental controls. Some of them offer a dark web monitoring service that determines if your email address, credit card number or other personal data has fallen into the wrong hands.

Norton 360 is our winner. It provides top-quality all-round security that has excellent malware detection rates, and remarkable additional features like a password manager. The service offers dark web monitoring in real-time as well as cloud backups.

It’s also among the few programs that are available for Mac computers (most other applications only support Windows PCs) and it has a good performance in tests by independent lab AV-Comparatives. It’s not cheap at PS2/month however, there’s a no-cost trial.
