Protector Plus Internet Security is an application that is designed to keep an eye out for all kinds of malicious files and pieces of code that can potentially harm your computer or exploit personal information.
Provided you keep your PC open 24/7, it’s built to constantly monitor the hard drive as well as any other portable storage that interacts with it, such as CDs, USB devices and external drives.
Since Protector Plus Internet Security is built to offer all-round protection, it’s also thought out to be accessible by users of all ages and experience levels. Proof of this is its intuitive design that makes it easy to perform a scan and change settings.
The application offers its fair share of more complicated options which you can use to set network rules or block IP addresses but overall, it’s a cinch to use and configure.
Like you would expect from any decent antivirus solution, Protector Plus Internet Security enables you to run quick, custom and full computer scans. Unlike a large number of competitors, when it comes to user defined scans, this application allows you to choose more than the folder you want to check.
You can tell it to scan files that have a certain file extension, skip those that are larger than a value you specify, it can be set to avoid archives, as well as take a certain course of action when a file is detected as being infected.
Apart from the standard computer scan function, Protector Plus Internet Security enables you to overview network activity, used ports, online activity, blocked attacks, file and registry modifications and more.
If you have an advanced understanding of systems then the previously mentioned features can certainly come in handy, especially since you are able to create activity rules for any application that runs.
On a closing note, Protector Plus Internet Security is a well put together tool that offers a large number of good features, rigorous scanning and is very easy to use.
