Should you depend on antivirus software?

We’re regularly asked at the Tech Desk about what anti-virus program we recommend. While we can’t recommend individual programs, this article from Slate gives an excellent overview of why the specific program that you use is only part of a larger strategy.  

More importantly, the article provides a good set of guidelines for users to take regarding the security of their computer, and explains why an anti-virus is only a small part of an increasingly complex strategy.

If you have any questions about any of these concerns, we’d be happy to discuss them further with you at the Tech Desk!
