Security 360 Installation
Installation is a breeze and, if you have an internet connection, it will start downloading updates immediately.
The interface, though absent of the Windows look and feel, is clean and intuitive.
By clicking Scan Now, your system will be scanned for current vulnerabilities and infections.
I received a security alert because I’d done something to compromise the security of my machine.
Busted: My firewall is switched off.
After enabling my firewall, my system got the all clear.
Like all good security software, Security 360 runs a scan to check your computer for malware.
The scan was quick; however, it was not lightning quick, so there’s nothing to shout about here. However, where Security 360 really shines is in its ability to detect a system hijack and find security holes.
The Passive Defense feature is used to protect you when browsing the internet. Malicious software and privacy-invasive software is detected and blocked before an issue arises.
Security 360 is a top-quality program that will protect your computer from threats, for free. The program demands low system resources and is not filled with unnecessary and confusing features like many popular antimalware programs are. I highly recommend this program to protect your computer.
