Do you have internet security software on your smartphone or tablet?

CyberGuru works mainly across Windows devices, PCs and servers, however we have clients who as part of their home or office network may use a smartphone or tablet as well (across many varying types of Mac or Android systems). Whilst it was once claimed that these devices can’t get viruses, we strongly believe in the use of an internet security software for these as well.

Security issues can arise from mistakenly installing a malicious application, opening an attachment, visiting a rouge website via a link, all of which may result in all kinds of trouble.

If you are a user of Symantec Norton 360 Multi-Device or McAfee All Access these licences can be installed on Apple and Android devices as well. Symantec and McAfee also provide free versions of their software which may be installed on the majority of devices. If you are running a vendor’s product already on your computers, we would suggest choosing this on your devices as well.

Whilst we strongly prefer commercial software due to the limitations of some of the free antivirus software, if you are looking for some free alternatives we suggest access your application store or review the vendor’s websites below for more information:

  • Avast (link opens in new window)
  • BitDefender (link opens in new window)
  • ClamXAV (link opens in new window)
  • Sophos (link opens in new window)
  • WebRoot (link opens in new window)

After all, some security to prevent issues is better than no protection at all. CyberGuru can help you to select and install an application for your smartphone or tablet. Please contact us for more information on our Support solution today.
