RE: Building a new firewall

in STEMGeeks2 years ago

I love theses articles you write, sadly very infrequently! The thing with firewalls though is that many people possibly don;t realise, they aren't going to protect you from viruses and worms etc and that anti-virus software is still needed.
You're a professional IT security guy, what advice do you have for us home users on anti-virus software and any 'insider tips' on how we mainly WIndows and Mac users should be protecting ourselves.
Thanks in advance and have a great weekend :-)

I recommend checking out the independent reports here:

I would recommend looking at multiple reports (there are different classifications) before making a decision.

I have been in the information security industry most of my life.
