What is Antivirus?

Anti-virus

Anti-virus software is a program or set of programs that are designed to prevent, search for, detect, and remove software viruses, and other malicious software like worms, Trojans, adware, and more as well as tries to remove the security holes in your operative system, prevent damages to your files and prevent the capture of sensitive information.  

Why is antivirus called antivirus?

Antivirus software was first developed with an intention to detect and remove computer viruses, hence the name. However with the increase in the number of malicious threats and attacks and the rapid growth and production of other kinds of malware developers of antivirus software started to produce and provide protection from other computer threats.

These tools are critical for users to have installed and up-to-date because a computer without anti-virus software installed will be infected within minutes of connecting to the internet as these tools are needed to deal with more than 60,000 new pieces of malware created daily. Here at Chili security we want our customers to feel safe when browsing the internet and not have to worry about the imminent threat every time they click on a new link or open a new tab. We also offer a safe pay browser for those who do online banking or online purchases as hackers are getting better and better at what they do and could easily access your information through the click of a button.

Antivirus that keeps itself updated

Normally people tend to not like antiviruses as there are those constant pop-ups that ask what it should do when a virus is found, which is very often. But with Chili Security, we have an auto-pilot function which lets the antivirus make decisions on its own. The auto piloted antivirus will regularly update its database containing a list of known viruses. Furthermore, the antivirus will make sure to remove any found viruses and protect you from them in the future, without you having to do anything!

With these features, the antivirus is able to keep up with all new viruses and help keep you protected so that you may feel safer while browsing the internet.
