    Who Needs an Anti-virus Product?

    Just as there is a need for an anti-virus solution for a standalone home or office PC, mobile customers are also vulverable to threats, such as spam, malware, phishing and fraud. So, for those users who already own or are in search of purchasing either a netbook, tablet, or laptop, they should consider installing an anti-virus solution (possible one of products that are listed below) to protect against the latest online threats.

    Advice: Find the one product that can provide antivirus updates (manually or automatic).

    Benefits: Since anti-virus software can guard against viruses (and other malicious content), everyone needs it (regardless of being a mobile user or not).
