Sophos Home, our preferred product for protecting your home computers
At ShowellTech, we’re big fans of cybersecurity and data protection. We make strong recommendations to our business customers to use commercial data security solutions, such as Sophos’ business products. This ensures their data and systems have advanced protection against malware, exploits, and ransomware.
Unfortunately for the average home user, the consumer market is flooded with antivirus programs that all claim to “be the best”. AVG, Bitdefender, Eset, Kaspersky, McAfee, Norton and Trend Micro just to name a few. While all those products are good and generally offer adequate protection, we have a go-to when it comes to home cybersecurity.
Sophos Home is business-grade cybersecurity that includes real time antivirus protection features, as well as AI to block advanced viruses, malware, exploits, and ransomware.
