Next-Generation Antivirus at Home

Now that many of us are working remotely, it is important to make sure that our home computer’s defenses meet today’s demands. Unfortunately, the antivirus software of yesterday can no longer compete with today’s advanced persistent threats. Home users do, however, have several next-generation antivirus options available to them. Next-generation antivirus software goes beyond traditional signature-based detection by using algorithms and artificial intelligence to examine processes, and block malicious tactics, techniques, and procedures. A reasonable and affordable option for users at home would be to use a free antivirus and a purchased Next-Generation Antivirus together.
