Why do you need online protection?
The internet is teeming with threats to your computer. Some will crash your system, and some will allow criminals to get to your personal information and abuse it to empty your bank accounts, or to create credit cards and incur debts in your name. Some will lure you down dark online passageways and trick you into handing over the information yourself.
None of the above is particularly desirable, obviously.

In a nutshell, the term ‘internet security’ is used to describe software which protects your computer, the data on it and ultimately yourself, from being exploited online. ‘Internet security’ is usually a compilation of different types of security tools, such as antivirus, spamfilters, firewalls and antispyware software – a so-called ‘suite’.
