According to AV-Comparatives, a security firm, ESET and Kaspersky are the most popular two antivirus solutions for desktop computers and laptops, featuring in the top four of every continent. Kaspersky is the most popular antivirus for mobile devices, also.
35.4% of the people use free desktop security solutions, but despite that, the number of paid antivirus solutions did not change. The number of people that do not use security solutions at all has decreased to 1.8%.
86% of the people that use security solutions say that their system was not been infected by malware, while 35% of them say that the security software blocked malware within the last week.
58.2% of the users have Windows 10 and 26.6% use Windows 7. On the mobile side, 71.8% of users use Android, 17% use iOS and 6.8% still use the rusty Windows Mobile.
Due to the fact that I also work from home with sensitive information, I am a little paranoid with security. I am a computer geek capable of restoring everything and cleaning up the computer if it gets infected, but I am afraid of ransomware malware.
So, in order to stay safe, I use ESET Antivirus, Zemana AntiMalware and Cybereason RansomFree. While ESET has both computer and internet protection, Zemana is a highly capable, cheap, anti malware software famous for finding and stopping ransomware viruses from encrypting data. On top of that, there is the free Cybereason RansomFree radar that has created a bunch of dummy files to keep them as bait for ransomware and to kill the encryption process in time, before it eats all the data.
