WHICH IS THE BEST ANTI-VIRUS?

This has been a topic of debate for many years.  The reason why it’s (still) a debate is because there is no single, definitive answer for everyone.  Like many choices, the best choice depends on a variety of things including budget, number and type of devices, risk of being compromised, value of being secure, and more.  Because there are many factors to consider, we will not be giving the title of “Best Anti-Virus” in this article.  Instead, we are going to try to summarize the general options for anti-virus so you can make that determination.
