McAfee Internet Security 2013 Review

McAfee Internet Security 2013 ($40 for one year of protection on up to 3 computers, as of 12/19/12) didn't manage top marks in our security suite tests, but it's still a fairly proficient antimalware program that will keep you relatively

SpiderOak review

Every backup service worth its salt uses encryption to keep your data safe from snoops, but Spider­Oak goes one step further by promising to keep your data private from its own employees. Although you still should use common sense in choosing what to upload to any service, I believe that SpiderOak is one of the best secure online backup options available.

WinPatrol 2012 review

The latest version of WinPatrol, a free security utility that serves as a virtual guard dog for your Windows PC, helps make the Web feel a whole lot safer than the scary place it can often seem. The 2012 version offers new ways to protect you from malware that's particularly tricky, but unfortunately, one of its key new features is only available in the $30 Plus version.

GetCocoon review

The Web is a scary place. Between the advertisers looking to follow your every move, hackers eyeing your passwords, and viruses threatening to ruin your PC, it's enough to make you swear off surfing forever. Or, you could just download Cocoon, a browser add-on for Internet Explorer and Firefox that helps you browse the Web and an iPhone app.

Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012 review

If you’re looking for a suite with a load of features, Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security 2012 (£49.95 for one year and three PCs) isn’t for you. But if you need a set-and-forget suite that will keep your PC reasonably safe, it may be the right choice.

Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 review

Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 (£49.99 for one year and three PCs) placed fourth in a recent survey of 2012 security suites. Although it finished outside the top three, it's a solid all-around suite that will do an effective job at keeping you safe.

Bitdefender Internet Security 2012 review

Bitdefender Internet Security 2012 (£39.99 on three PCs for a year) captured the highest rating in our malware detection, blocking, and removal tests compared to its rivals. Those fantastic results, combined with the software's excellent interface, make it a great product.

Webroot SecureAnywhere Essentials 2012 review

Webroot's SecureAnywhere Essentials 2012 (£39.95 for one year, three PCs at the time of writing) offering shows lots of promise. SecureAnywhere represents a complete overhaul of Webroot's product line, with a brand-new interface and new internals to go along with it. The package is fast, and it's good at catching malware before the invader reaches your PC, but a higher-than-average false-positive rate and disappointing system-cleanup results keep it from ranking any higher.

BCWipe 5 review

BCWipe 5.0 is a suite of tools and utilities that help provide security by making sure that deleted files are truly gone. It's generally well-known that "deleting" a file in Windows doesn't truly erase it; what's less well known is how easy it is to recover files, or partial files, even after the Recycle Bin has been emptied and it seems the file is gone for good. BCWipe ($40, 25-day free trial with limitations) works by overwriting the space formerly occupied by a file with various schema of random data, as per the user's desire.

ZoneAlarm Free Firewall 2012 review

ZoneAlarm Free Firewall has been arguably the most popular third-party firewall for Windows. It's a two-way firewall that's designed to help protect your PC from hackers getting in and any malicious programs on your PC from sending data out. However, it doesn't protect against Web-based exploits like some (but not all) other firewall solutions do. It does include anti-phishing to help detect and block dangerous sites, though. Additionally, it includes 2GB of free online storage for backing up your files, also offered separately from ZoneAlarm.
