Why should I upgrade to the new Symantec Endpoint Protection 12.1.4 antivirus software?
- It is FREE.
- This version has new, enhanced security features that are important to keeping your computer safe.
- In recent weeks Cryptolocker, a form of malware, has become more prevalent. The virus infects PCs, locks files with an unbreakable 2048-bit encryption (holding them hostage), and then asks users to pay a ransom in order to access the locked files.
- It supports Windows 8.1 and Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9). Older versions of Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) were developed before these new operating systems were released.
