We’ve written extensively on the various attacks that your computer can experience simply by browsing the internet. If you type in the wrong address on your browser, you can get hit by a man-in-the-middle attack. Download the wrong file, and suddenly your browser, homepage, and ads all look different.
Imagine that someone in your computer could see everything you write. Hackers have access to a specific kind of malware known as a keylogger. These pieces of software record and transmit everything you do with your keyboard and mouse. That means every word you type – even words you type and then subsequently delete. It means every email you send, every chat message, every Skype message, every Slack message, every tweet, every Facebook update, and every URL your type into your browser.
You kept your antivirus software up-to-date. You had a firewall in place. Your employees went through all necessary cybersecurity awareness training.

In an age of ads, pop-ups, pop-overs, and video overlays, we’ve almost gotten used to being bombarded with advertising. However, this doesn’t make it any less intrusive and annoying.
SQL is a programming language that allows programmers to “talk” to large databases using nearly-plain English.
It can access and manipulate data held in a number of tables on a server. When it comes to websites, those tables might include sensitive items like usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, and more.
Think of the damage that one talented hacker can do. Now imagine what they can do with an army of computers at their disposal, amplifying their resources on an order of thousands or millions.
These “armies” actually exist, and they’re called botnets.
If you’re considering an antivirus bundled with a VPN, you can’t risk using a VPN that isn’t actually secure. After all, why leave yourself potentially vulnerable to phishing, malware, and viruses?
Antiviruses and VPNs go hand in hand: Antiviruses protect your device, while VPNs protect your connection, meaning no malicious threats get anywhere near your device in the first place.
We’ve taken the time to carefully test and review a handful of proven effective antivirus programs that offer highly rated, secure VPN services in order to help you save time and money before purchasing a bundled service.
