While there are certain antivirus programs we definitely do not recommend, no one can say that one program is necessarily better than another. We simply have a preference for Eset due to its high detection rate as well as the low impact it has on the computer.
Despite what others may tell you, there is no “perfect” or “best” antivirus program. Threats and viruses are constantly evolving and all of the “good guys” must make changes to keep up. Every antivirus program out there has failed at one point or another.
Keep in mind, however, that antivirus software represents just one layer that you should have to protect your computers, servers and networks. Read our support article on keeping a healthy computer for more information.
If you own or represent a business, we can implement complete threat protection in a layered fashion via our Managed Services.
