  • 1. Best Internet Security 2012: The Top 3 Software Suits.Best Internet Security 2012 information as PDFWhat is the best Internet Security for 2012?1. Bitdefender Internet Security 2012****2. Kaspersky Internet Security 2012**3. Webroot Internet Security 2012*Our 10 finalists of best internet security 2012 software packages are:Winner: Bitdefender Internet Security 2012 – Lifetime PC $79,95 1/5
  • 2. 2. Kaspersky Anti-virus $59,953. Webroot AntiVirus $39,954. Norton AntiVirus $39,995. ESET Nod32 Antivirus $39,996. AVG Anit-virus $34,997. GData Anti Virus $29,958. Avira Antivirus $23,499. Vipre Antivirus $29,9510. Trend Micro Titanium $39,95We looked at these parameters:How much protection does this internet security software offer you?What you are looking for is software that protects you from viruses, worms, Trojans, Spyware,Key loggers, Phishing scams, email-borne threats and root kits.All 10 solutions performed excellent, except from Avira, Vipre and Trend Micro. I wouldn’t saythey performed badly, but the other software packages just performed better than they did.Level of EffectivenessIt just needs to offer a very solid protection for you, right? The results from industry-standardsecurity software testers were compared with professional security organization. What comesout is the overall effectiveness.All packages performed optimal, although the same three packages, Avira, Vipre and TrendMicro, were performing a little worse than their opponents.You want it to be installed easilyThe only thing you really want is to be protected instantly. This means the moment you installthis on your computer, you want it to perform a scan in order to make sure that your computer issafe and from that moment you want to be protected.We took a look at this and compared again. Trend and Vipre were actually performing the worstfrom this top 10. They seemed to be a little more complicated than the other packages.You want it easy to be usedThe software just should do the work; you don’t need to understand the why and how!. Youdon’t want to spend time learning more about being able to work with this program. Allpackages perform well. The only program falling behind a little is Avira.We all want extra featuresWhy? More features usually mean more benefits. In this case we are looking for more security,better and easier way to use the software en you want it to perform at its best. Vipre and Trendseem to do this a little worse than the others. But don’t forget, we are dealing with the top 10,which means that they all perform way better than all other choices you have.Regular updates 2/5
  • 3. Remember, we are dealing with criminal pros. They will do whatever it takes to stay ahead ofthe measures these software programs offer. This implies that your software is as good as itslatest update. Every day new viruses hit the internet, which means you need to update on avery frequent basis. But you don’t even want to bother with the fact to remember to update.This should be done automatically. The only internet security software that needs to improve onthis seems to be Avira.You want help and support the moment things go wrongYou don’t want to understand the why and how this software works. You just want to be helpedthe moment you have a problem. You want to be able to access solutions fast and the right formof help. This means that if you cannot find it quickly, you want to be able to give them a call,email them, have a live chat, search a forum, and search a list of Frequently Asked Questionsor just to browse the tutorials. 9 of these software packages perform excellent. The only fallingshort a little is Avira AntiVirus software.To summarize thisYou want to have a solution that has to effective against the various dangers on the internet.You also want it to be configured in such a way that it doesn’t slow down your performance ofyour computer. And it has to be easy to use in every respect. So basically you are looking for asolution that will save you time, doesn’t cost the world and it shouldn’t slow down yourcomputer.All packages performed excellent in the area of detection of threats. Virus detection, detectionof worms, Trojans, spyware, malware and root kits. All of them performed 100%. So nodifference here.Trend Micro is the only package that doesn’t provide additional protection against browserexploits.G Data and Avira don’t have a system ready that will detect the danger of key loggers.Avira also doesn’t provide instant messaging protection.P2P/File Sharing protection is not offered by G Data and Avira and Avira don’t provide goodsecurity against hackers.Phishing (trying to steal your credit card numbers through internet sites) is not covered byWebroot Antivirus, Norton and Vipre.In the area of Identity theft protection ESET, Avira and Vipre do not provide you goodprotection.ActiveX protection is not covered by G Data.A lack of cookie protection has been found with Webroot, G Data and Avira.While surfing the web you want a good web protection as well. Vipre and Trend Mirco are notsufficiently enough equipped.You also want to be covered against spam activities. Kaspersky, Norton, ESET, G Data, Avira,Vipre and Trend Micro don’t provide enough protection for this. 3/5
  • 4. In Avira and Vipre we also detected that blacklisting and white listing is not good enough.And the real-time protection of G Data could be improved in order to give you enough security.The quick and deep scan possibilities of Avira are not good enough.AVG and G Data don’t provide good password protection settings and at the same time it israther difficult to adjust your security levels within these programs quickly.On a tutorial level, Kaspersky, G Data, Avira, Vipre and Trend Micro don’t perform well. AndWebroot and G Data don’t have a forum.All packages seem to be good for the most popular configurations, like windows 7, Vista or XP.Here is how we came to this conclusion:If you start to surf the internet without this protection, you simply know that your computer isinfected. No doubt about that. There are people on the internet that solely concentrate oncreating new kinds of viruses, various kinds of spyware, Trojan horses (that’s how this kind ofvirus is called), worms and many other kinds of scripts, called malware. This is their fulltime‘job’. Their sole intention is to get to you and misuse you and your computer. So these guyswill do anything in order to bypass the security measures. But if you are surfing the internetwithout protection, you can be certain, that these specific programs will find your computer andwill take it over.Conclusion best internet security 2012:Really, if you are hacked without internet security software, it really is your own mistake. Sorryfor being so blunt, but it is a fact. You can do something about this. But more about this later.Maybe you recall the time when these viruses were some kind of harmless. They were only veryannoying. I remember the time when I caught a virus which opened all kinds of pages for mewithout me wanting it. I was really ashamed about this as in many cases it were pages that weredealing with porn. My wife thought I was doing this, until I showed here what happened.Well, these times were child play in comparison to what is happening now! The new kinds ofviruses are much more advanced. These viruses can really harm or actually damage yourcomputer completely. But the most dangerous ones are the scripts that are stealing all yourinformation and even more importantly, your identity, like your bank account details, passwordsand logins. And these threats can really cause you a lot of troubles, as you have to prove thatyou are innocent; but how do you do that? Really, this is a real and very big problem!A good resource for this is best internet security 2012 on Wikipedia.This is the reason why you really should start to think about a solid protection against thesecriminals; you need the best internet security 2012 software.
