TDS Internet security partner reviewed as first-rate protection, usability

F-Secure Internet Security 2013, which powers TDS Telecommunications Corp. (TDS) Internet Security product, earned the top spot in this year’s security suite testing by PCWorld.

PC World calls F-Secure Internet Security 2013 “first-rate protection” with a “user-friendly interface” and a “quick, painless installation.”

When tested in PCWorld’s real-world attack test, F-Secure Internet Security 2013 completely blocked 100 percent of attacks and 99 percent of known malware samples. In addition, the scanning speeds took second place in both “on-demand (manual) scan tests and on-access (automatic) scans.”

Antivirus protection has come into the forefront of Internet safety with the increased awareness of viruses, phishing, spam and malware. Criminals are constantly changing their tactics to gain personal information and passwords. To thwart attacks, TDS advises that all home computers have the most up-to-date Internet security software in place.

The United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team provides more information about types of computer viruses and ways to avoid them.
