Which AntiVirus is better?

While Norton has long been an industry leader, Comodo gives the company some fierce competition. Both offer high-quality virus protection and removal tools, alongside a free firewall. However, Comodo offers some unique features that aren’t available on Norton. The ‘Game Mode’ suppresses unwanted updates if you’re playing online. The auto-sandboxing technology allows you to launch suspicious files and apps in a virtual environment to ensure they’re trustworthy. While this is possible on Norton, it requires extra software and a lot of set-up time. Meanwhile, Norton excels in innovative ways. Along with viruses, it tackles spyware, ransomware, adware, and even phishing threats. The company uses crowdsourcing techniques to gain insights into potential infections, and their complex SONAR heuristic behavioral filter can even stop zero-day infections. That’s fairly comparable to Comodo’s sandboxing technique when it comes to protection.

While Norton may be good for all-around security, Comodo should be the top choice for gamers. Not only does it have a dedicated gaming mode, but its sandboxing feature will protect you when downloading games. Comodo also offers antivirus software for Linux and Mac machines, which can be hard to find.
