Norton Identity Safe review

Users of Symantec's Norton line of security products have long had access to its password management tools. But you no longer need to be a paying Norton user to get access to Norton Identity Safe, a standalone product that makes password management a (relatively) easy task.

AllClear ID review

There are a lot of tools out there for finding out whether your identity has been compromised. But the price of that eternal vigilance can put a serious crunch on your time--assuming you that even know where to find all those tools to guard against identity theft.

McAfee Mobile Security for Android review

As threats to mobile devices sharply increase, a good security app can make a huge difference. McAfee Mobile Security, the mobile version of McAfee's desktop software, can help protect your phone or tablet from mobile malware, phishing, and device theft. McAfee provides a free seven-day trial, but requires a £24.99 yearly subscription if you decide to keep using the service once thereafter.

Kaspersky TDSSKiller review

Recently I spent some time rescuing my sister-in-law's laptop from some seriously nasty malware. Even after running utilities like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then using UnHide to restore the system's missing icons and folders, something was hijacking the Web browsers. Whenever I'd click a link in Internet Explorer or Firefox (the latest versions of both, FYI), some malicious bit of code would redirect the browser to a phishing site. That's hijacking in a nutshell, and it's extremely frustrating.

CA Mobile Security App review

Joining the ranks of countless other paid mobile malware apps, CA Mobile Security does very little to stand out from the crowd. The user interface is not very user friendly, and there is no help menu with which you can learn the ins and outs of the app. CA does offer free technical support if you have any questions, but most people probably won't want to call a help line in order to get a smartphone app up and running. Like most other security apps, CA Mobile Security allows you to set parental controls, backup and restore a device, and scan for malware but in the time I've spent with the app I have noticed several quirks and bugs that set it behind its competition.

Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010 review

Identity management is the bane of many an IT administrator's existence. Employees come and go. Workers from partner companies require access to the network in a time-limited but secure way. Users forget their passwords and lose their smartcards. And new services come online all the time. It's a wonder anyone can get anything done.

But Check Point's new ZoneAlarm SocialGuard can help: It offers an easy way to guard against potential threats while still allowing your children the freedom to explore Facebook's offerings.

Websense TRITON Defensio Social Web Security for Facebook review

The days when Facebook was nothing more than fun way to waste time with a few friends are long gone. Today, you're just as likely to run across prospective employers there as you are old classmates, and that's to say nothing of the scammers and spammers you might find, too.
