Comparison of protection solutions

for home users and small companies

Introduction to comparison

The four tables below refer to the comparison of antivirus solutions, productivity of security suites, privacy protection, and selected software features. This information was prepared with the utmost care to prevent digital exclusion caused by an inadequate protection of files and personal data on the Internet. And at the same time avoid cyberattacks, and help to choose the best protection software for home users and small businesses.

When developing this comparison, we were guided by the principle that the data presented in the comparison should be up to date as much as possible, and reflect the latest updates of protection products.

Below the tables we publish a changelog. We encourage our community of Internet users to actively participate in regular updating of the tables.

Please contact us if you notice a mistake or have a suggestion about revisions of data. You can submit a proposal to edit using the form on this page. We will review your feedback, and update the changelog.

PROTECTION

Effective protection against ransomware and 0-day threats is not an option but an absolute necessity, so we will recommend only good software.

PRIVACY

Developers, when creating security modules, must take into account modern trends of privacy and data protection against online leaks.

PRODUCTIVITY

A comprehensive suite should include features such as: system and software update, backup creation, password manager, and others.

OTHER FEATURES

In addition to a brief summary, the table provides information that can be helpful for customers who expect added values after purchasing a license.

Changelog

Let us ensure that information in the information in the tables is always up to date.
Reported mistakes and updates will be published in this changelog.
