Many users have turned to Windows VPN services over the past few years. It only takes one slip for your credit card number, bank passwords, or email logins to be stolen. These users would rather it happen never.
Windows has been pretty good with security. But the rogue Windows Internet Security 2013 scare begs the question, is it enough? This type of malware not only lulls users into a false sense of security with reports of threats detected and blocked. The malware can pick up anything entered online, like your name, names of your family members, comments, passwords and online accounts. Fake scans and alerts are designed to trick users into buying the full version, where additional personal details such as your credit card number and your home address are obtained.
The hackers who create malicious programs are smart enough to pinpoint various weaknesses. Browser security, antivirus software, firewalls, and all existing security measures have soft spots. In combination, these systems can offer better protection. The best combination, however, is with a Windows VPN. This is a unique solution that approaches online security from the strongest preventive standpoint yet.
PC Security Weaknesses
The term antivirus itself shows that this type of software is made to stop viruses that already exist. But they only find out that these viruses exist after they have victimized a number of users. And the number of online theft victims is usually huge, because spyware, malware and viruses are created to work fast and efficiently before antivirus software can catch up and block them.
It’s a never-ending game of cat and mouse. And by population statistics alone, we all know the mice will keep getting the cheese.
Windows VPN is Prevention Better than Any Cure
Prevention is better than cure, but by the time you’ve “cured” your PC from a virus, the damage is most likely done. You’re just left to clean up the mess. So is there a method of prevention that works against these debilitating bugs? More and more PC users have begun to rely on Windows VPN providers. A Windows VPN can put up an effective shield against all manner of malicious software. It works effectively by simply not allowing entry to anything without specific authorization, and by coding every bit of data so it simply can’t be read. This is authentication that cannot be duplicated, and encryption that cannot be cracked in time to do you any damage.
A Windows VPN turns the table on hackers, giving you the sneaky speed of mice that gives you a clean getaway every time. So go on and let them chase you. And with a Windows VPN, if they ever do catch you, they won’t find any soft spots.
