Are you looking for free computer virus protection in Kansas City?  Like so many things in life, there is no such thing as a free lunch.

If you only rely on free antivirus protection, you are not getting the protection you need to be able to keep your computer free of computer viruses and therefore have an increased risk of identity theft, data loss, computer damage and suffering with a slow computer.  In today’s Internet threat landscape, computers don’t need less protection, they need more!!

When protecting your computer, antivirus protection is one tool used to keeping your computer virus free.  Other tools that are a part of full internet security packages include such things as patch management, two-way firewalls, threat scanning, email filtering, password masking, application control, cloud protection, parental controls, etc.  With cyber criminals coming up with new ways to attack you every day, you need a multitude of tools to protect you, not just one………..that  was free.  Free computer virus protection isn’t free, it costs more than even the most expensive security.

All of the companies that make the free computer virus protection packages are in business to make money!  Why would they give it away for free!?!?!  Well, I suspect the answer is because they know that there is a pretty strong likelihood that your computer will become infected while using the free antivirus and to make sure you lower the risk of getting another, you will purchase their full internet security package AND renew it year after year.  Basically, the free computer virus protection is the “gateway drug” to the good stuff you really needed all along.
