070 List of the Best Free Security & Privacy SoftwareRecently, I chose my top five anti-malware applications and there are many more that didn’t make the cut. Here on Windows Guides, we have a section dedicated to security and anti-malware application reviews. But, if you want a list of a bunch of security programs, look no further than Gizmo’s freeware.

Personally, I’d start with the list of the best free anti-virus software and then, when your sitting tightly and have an afternoon… or day to kill, check out the list of “probably the best free security [programs] in the world.” The list includes the following types of security software:

  • Realtime protection
  • Scanners
  • Tools for virus removal
  • Online-scanners
  • Firewalls
  • HIPS
  • System hardening-HIPS
  • System hardening
  • Sandboxing/virtualization
  • Vulnerability scanning and updates
  • Browser security
  • IP-blocking/hardening
  • Privacy
  • System monitoring
  • Network traffic monitoring
  • System cleaning
  • Data rescue
  • Encrypting

  • Miscellaneous
  • Tests and malware analysis tools

Have fun!
