Microsoft Security Intelligence Report v14: Why antivirus software matters

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on April 23, 2013

“The latest volume of the Security Intelligence Report (SIR) highlights the importance of using antivirus software. Antivirus software helps protect your computer from malicious software (malware) and can be downloaded or installed inexpensively or at no charge. Still, according to the SIR v14 findings, 24 percent of computers worldwide were not running up-to-date antivirus software, leaving them 5.5 times more likely to be infected with viruses.”

  • SIR Volume 14: July 2012 to December 2012 – The Microsoft Security Intelligence Report (SIR) analyzes the threat landscape of exploits, vulnerabilities, and malware using data from Internet services and over 600 million computers worldwide. Threat awareness can help you protect your organization, software, and people.”
