PCProtect is an all-in-one security solution that handles internet and cyber security very well. In addition to these features, it also offers a VPN service to keep your internet activity private. The software is relatively new like Total AV and is based in the United Kingdom and falls under the purview of its parent company SS Protect Limited.
A 12-month subscription of the PCProtect is sold at $49.00 and can cover up to three devices. It also comes with some advanced antivirus features, malware protection as well as web-browsing security for you. This pricing is a promotional pricing for the company to get its product out to the market. Standard pricing for the subscription is $149, and it comes with a 30 day money-back guarantee.
There is a free version of PCProtect that you can download and install on your system that comes with basic features, such as system boot and a scanner that scans your machine for potential problems and threats. It also comes with a disk cleaner that notifies you if you need to clean out the space on your drives. There is also a family package that is offered by the website but the features that it provides aren’t explained at length.
PCProtect’s VPN uses the AES-256 bit cipher, which is the industry standard. In addition, it is combined with SHA-512 bit hash authentication and the RSA-4096 bit handshake as well as perfect forward secrecy. When you take into account that all of these encryption methods are combined into a singular package, that means it makes your computer’s security extremely hard to break. Hackers would need a large bank of supercomputers in order to break PCProtect’s level of encryption. The VPN service alone places it with an A grade, which makes it highly superior in terms of security.
As for the user interface, PCProtect is not very difficult to use at all. The spyware and malware protection provided by the software is top-tier and puts PCProtect on par with industry leaders. PCProtect scans regularly and immediately reacts in real-time if it detects any malware on your system. The real-time nature of the program makes it impossible for you to download something that is malicious on your computer.
It can also be configured to detect and restrict ads, or any other dangerous content that could infect your computer. The program reviews your entire device and if it finds something malicious in the search query, the Web Shield will notify you. The ability to block out spam and popups makes your web browsing experience safe and smooth.
PCProtect offers two scanning methods for customers to use: a full system scan and quick scan.
