Of all the threats to the security of user information, viruses stand apart. These small malicious programs, if not handled carefully, can steal or destroy any data. But it turns out to be the easiest to defend against them. The Internet is teeming with dozens of different antivirus programs that offer us a quick and easy solution to the problem. But how good are these programs? How to make a specific choice?
Laboratory Research – Clean Water Cheating
Very often you can find on the Internet studies of various laboratories or some scientists there, which talk about the advantages of various antiviruses over others. Do not pay attention to this bluff, all antiviruses have disadvantages and advantages, and there is no better. In addition, often these laboratories are subsidiary laboratories that develop certain antivirus programs. You yourself can guess how objective their judgments are. Continue reading
We will not go into little things like translating words, occupying them some part of the article. Just point out that a firewall (from the English – fire wall), or as it is also called brandmauer (with German – fire wall) in Russian has two names that display its purpose (inter) firewall. This is a screen that protects the user from influences coming from outside. When connecting to the Internet, having a firewall is not a luxury, and indeed such a risk is hardly justified, it will most likely lead to raking up a bunch of viruses, or even just to reinstall the system.

The term VPN (Eng. “Virtual Private Network”) refers to a group of technologies that provide a network connection, or the so-called logical network, functioning on top of some other network, usually the Internet.
Although data is transferred to a VPN over networks with a low level of trust, thanks to the use of cryptography, the level of trust in a VPN can be arbitrarily high. Among the cryptography tools used are encryption, means to protect against changes in transmitted messages, public key infrastructure and authentication. Depending on the final destination, the VPN implements three types of connections: network-to-network, node-to-network and node-to-node.
VPN implementation and structure Continue reading
