Stacy’s Picks: PC Matic Home Security
|Published:||Oct 22, 2013|
PC Matic Home Security delivers several security and maintenance features in one free package to keep your home computer protected and optimized! By providing safe, secure ways to automate maintenance and prevent vulnerabilities, PC Matic can save you all the time, hassle and money that comes along with malware and virus infected operating systems.
PC Matic Home Security comes with Vipre, a top anti-virus engine, as well as Super Shield's real-time protection. Rather than referring to the traditional "black list" to block a very large list of known problematic software, Super Shield utilizes a much smaller "white list" and effectively blocks any software that's not among those deemed trustworthy. Of course, the user will receive a notification if the software they are trying to run has been blocked, and they can override this by going into the advanced mode if they personally trust the software to run properly and safely. Even the most highly-rated anti-virus software can be rendered ineffective if not kept up-to-date with virus definitions and security updates. Super Shield accesses the cloud and automatically patches holes and vulnerabilities found in out-of-date software and compromised websites.
One of the best features of PC Matic is how it can be setup to automatically operate unobtrusively in the background. With one free download, you can experience secure browsing, prevent security hole exploits, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your home computer is safe and clean. Each licensee of the free non-commercial version of PC Matic Home Security can install the software across three different computers. Commercial users get a few more perks, including support, stability tweaks and performance optimization, for a very reasonable subscription price. Follow this link to find out more and obtain the download. It's been said that PC Matic has resolved problems that similar software on the market could not, and users report faster performance as well as incredible ease of use. The price couldn't be any better, so why not test it out yourself?
