(PRWEB UK) 8 October 2012
The UK is at the forefront of embracing ecommerce and is now ranked as the most internet based major economy in the world.
Online purchases are set to top 14% of all transactions in 2012, creating sales in excess of £130 billion, and an average spend of over £2000 per person.
But with so much money circulating into the online world, there also lies a greater risk of becoming a victim of cyber crime. Cyber crime has become the third most common type of economic crime in the UK, with figures set to rise steadily over the next 5 years. It is vital therefore, for consumers to protect their computers from the latest threats and safeguard their financial details from fraud.
McAfee, the world’s leading software security company, have been at the forefront of this fight against online viruses for over 25 years and have unrivalled expertise in internet security. Their extensive database currently contains and identifies over 90million dangerous programs and is set to top 100million by the end of 2013.
Their latest incarnation of online protection comes in the form of McAfee Internet Security 2013, which is again set to be the most popular choice for UK homes and businesses for 2013.
PC security has never been more important. You wouldn’t walk around the high street with your handbag unzipped, or leave your wallet hanging off the back of your jacket. The same common sense principles apply when protecting your personal assets online.
There are many free internet security packages popping up over the internet these days but these programmes simply don’t have the expertise and fire-power of established security software firms. Many offer the illusion that your computer is protected, but in the real world it takes money and investment into the latest research and development of which only dedicated security software providers can provide. It only takes the tiniest slip up for your computer to become fully compromised.
Viruses aren’t deterred by merely seeing security on your computer. They will try by any means to break through and it’s the quality of the security that ultimately matters.
To get fully protected from both current and future online threats, McAfee Internet Security 2013 is on sale now at RetailGadgets.co.uk with 12 months subscription.
