Antivirus software is a software program that is designed to prevent, search for, detect, and remove software viruses, and other malicious software like worms, trojans, adware from your devices.
Antivirus is the most basic must-have in the fight against the daily threats against a computer in the Cyber age.
Why use Antivirus?
What antivirus software programs are especially good at is making decisions for the staff member. If they open attachments, click on links, and perhaps are not too technically savvy, it’s good to have an antivirus that can prevent the mistakes you may make in those situations.
How does Antivirus work?
Many antivirus software programs still download malware definitions straight to your device and scan your files in search of matches. But since, as we mentioned, most malware regularly morphs in appearance to avoid detection, Webroot works differently. Instead of storing examples of recognized malware on your device, it stores malware definitions in the cloud. This allows us to take up less space, scan faster, and maintain a more robust threat library.
