There are so many free anti-virus products out there but are they actually worth installing?
The simple answer is “No” if you’re installing it onto a business device you have a responsibility of keeping the data safe and secure. The cost of the downtime because you have had a virus would cost you far more than a paid anti-virus subscription.
To add to this, generally, free anti-virus is not licensed for business use. They also have the right to watermark your emails with protected by XYZ Anti Virus Free Edition, what impression does this give your suppliers and customers?
There is also no vendor support for free products and trust me when you’re in complete meltdown because your device or devices are infected you will need some help.
So in summary, if you’re a business user it’s simply not worth it.
