Reston, VA (PressExposure) June 26, 2011 -- As the internet becomes a global phenomenon, computer security against viruses, malware, spyware, and other threats becomes increasingly important. The Netizen Guide, http://www.netizenguide.net is a new website that promises the best internet security using the concept of tiered defense. This site is intended to be easy enough for almost anyone to follow, regardless of computer experience. The concept is to create multiple layers of defense or safety nets by using several small, lightweight, but powerful security programs in addition to the conventional antivirus and firewall.
"The reason tiered defense gives the best internet security is because it already takes the most powerful conventional security programs and then adds additional layers of defense around them" said Daniel Delos, one of the site's founders. The nice thing about this concept is that all of the utilities have little or no impact on your system's performance. In fact, on the Netizen Guide, there is a category called 'Passive Defense' with computer security programs that do not need to be actively running to protect your computer. Among other things, this passive defense involves adjustments to your computer and web browser to automatically block malicious scripts or programs that could otherwise run without the user's knowledge or permission. The scanning utilities are much the same since they are only run for active scanning. Clearly 'best internet security' here does not just mean powerful but also efficient with your computer's resources.
When it comes to computer security, another point that many consumers are concerned about is price. On this point Mr. Delos responded,"although we highly recommend the paid versions, all our recommended utilities offer free versions that still retain a solid set of features." It is apparent that the best internet security is not necessarily the most expensive. In fact, using the guide at http://www.netizenguide.net it is still possible to set up an extremely powerful multilayered defense almost for free!
