What is security software?

Security software can refer to virus protection software, as well as software to remove unwanted adware and spyware. Although in the past these were typically marketed and sold as separate software programs, today's applications usually protect against both viruses and adware/spyware.

Security software usually includes a real-time protection feature that attempts to stop potentially harmful programs before they infect your computer, and also scans your computer for such threats. The programs requires regular updating to remain effective against new malicious applications.

Note: For personal computers, UITS recommends Windows Defender for Windows 8.x, which comes as part of Windows 8.x as a full antivirus suite. Be aware that the earlier version of Windows Defender on IUware is not the full suite, but a spyware program only. For Windows 7 and Vista, UITS recommends Microsoft Security Essentials, available free of charge via IUware. Be sure to have only one antivirus program installed.
