Preventive antivirus and antispyware packages are �must haves� in today�s networking environments. No company from the smallest business with 10 users up to the largest enterprise with 100,000+ employees is immune from the security threats posed by rogue code � which include viruses, Trojans, bots, zombies, spyware, spam and blended malware. The threats have become more sophisticated, pervasive and pernicious with each passing day. And since the overwhelming majority of companies have intranets, extranets and Internet connections, malicious code can penetrate systems and networks in stealth form, from even trusted sites and circumnavigate the globe faster than you can say �Magellan.�

Antivirus/antispyware vendors, particularly market leaders like Symantec, McAfee and Trend Micro have responded by retooling their products to defend against the latest threats. Unfortunately, instead of building a better, more efficient package, many of the market leaders have simply built a bigger package. When it comes to antivirus/antispyware software, bigger is definitely not better.

The remedy to bloatware is a better, more efficient product that is specifically engineered to scan, detect and remove myriad security threats without impacting performance and taking a big bite out of the IT capital expenditure budgets.
