Free Antivirus is bad.

“It will never happen to me.”
“I won’t click on anything I don’t recognize.”
“Only uneducated computer users get viruses.”
“I don’t need to pay for antivirus software.”

Do any of these statements sound familiar? As we’re all aware, we live in an ever-changing world in regards to technology. Ask yourself, do you keep up with the latest cyber-security threats and viruses? If not, don’t worry, Allevia Technology does. We recommend the use of ESET Nod32 Antivirus to keep you and your computer safe from viruses and malware. ESET is a light-weight and robust antivirus that will keep your computer protected from the latest viruses and cyber-security threats.

You may be thinking that a free antivirus is a good, cost-effective solution. Unfortunately, it isn’t. Think for a moment, what motivation does a company have for offering a good free antivirus product? Many of the companies that offer free antivirus products also offer a paid version. Which version do you think is the most up-to-date? Which version do you think is the most efficient at keeping your computer safe? The paid version. Many free antivirus software include advertisements. Many times these advertisements are often the cause of infections in the first place! By purchasing a good antivirus upfront you are essentially guaranteeing yourself to be virus free. Lets say you disregard our advice and use a free antivirus; if you become infected, the cost to clean the virus has cost you at least 1 and a half times the amount the paid antivirus would have cost on the front end.

Here at Allevia Technology we aren’t salesmen. We’re honest computer geeks who hate to see virus infected computers. Why? Because nearly 100% of the time a virus infection is preventable with good protection.

You may notice that our recommendation for a good antivirus often changes. Why is this? Just as the latest cyber-security threats and viruses evolve, so do the best anti-virus programs. If we notice a different anti-virus outperforming our current recommendation, we’ll switch. Why? Because we feel it is important that we keep our customers informed and using the best available antivirus for their hard earned dollars.
