Does The Internet Security Software Count As A Good Investment?

Jan 23, 2008
There are several tools for Internet security being released each year and if you are aware about online privacy too, you will be looking out for them. There is little doubt that the name of online security will have come below your attention more than once. This is one of the pioneering security tools present for Internet users today, pioneering because there really are some features in this software that you would not commonly find in others. But are these bells and whistles really needed? Should you consider investing in this extremely pricey software? By the way, in this avatar, the online security suite has been renamed as internet privacy suite.

Let us know what these fascinating features are that have made online privacy suite software a subject to talk and discuss about. The first thing that you will see is the presence of 'safes'. The program uses safes for securing your hard drives. Each of these safes has a space of 512 GB, which can easily accommodate more than one secure hard drives. You are given the facility of opening these safes when you enter the Windows on your computer. There are also features for securing all kinds of communication that you do through the Windows Mail service and the Outlook Express. Now these cannot be easily accessed to even by other users on the same PC, because you will get password protection apart from the password already present in the application.

The internet privacy software also acts like a willing janitor for your computer. Whenever you keep your PC idle, it will detect all the data that is no longer being used, and remove it from the hard drive. This not only keeps your hard drive squeaky clean and maximizes its performance, but it also helps for security, as it can remove some malicious programs that might be housed on your PC. You also have advanced cookie controls that you can use to keep your Internet usage as discreet as you want.

These are the newly introduced features in internet privacy program. The old features are all there as they were, and maybe a bit improved. Like, you have the password manager program which is a set of encryption for all the programs on your computer. You could access these programs through your mobile phone and iPods; you can still do that. The encryption tools are still there, for both your Internet usage as well as your offline usage.

But what is the drawback? Well, for one, your computer could become slow. Also, the tremendous encryption the software provides might make your Internet to work slowly, and might prevent access to some websites. There might be incorrect file shreds too, which could lead to a risk of losing data. And, most significantly, the price is quite high. At the box price of $79.95, there are sure to be fewer takers than there would have been with a lower price.

Anyways, the pros of the software vastly outweigh the cons, and I could even as far as saying that you will not find a better tool for managing your privacy online. It definitely counts as a good investment according to me.
