The official Techday anti-virus poll - have your say!

15 Feb 2016

Antivirus software helps protect your computer and network against most viruses, Trojans, malware and other unwanted invaders that can make your computer “sick”.  Viruses often perform malicious attacks on a person or company’s network, including deleting files, accessing personal data, or using one computer to attack other computers.

With wireless internet and the Internet of Things becoming more prevalent in the consumer and business space, the ways in which invaders can get into your system is increasing, and therefore implementing anti-virus software is becoming more important than ever.

Here at Techday, we want to know what, if any, antivirus software you use in your home or business.
