360 Internet Security Editor's Review

Using a computer without having capable Security software installed is equivalent to sleeping with your house’s main door wide open. Whether you use a PC at home or manage a network of computers at the workplace, PC security suite has become a part and parcel of computing experience nowadays. However, this does not necessarily mean you will have to churn out a steep amount for paid security apps. If you are looking for a capable security app for your PC but do not want to pay for it, try out 360 Internet Security. Made by Chinese company Qihoo, this app is quite popular in its home turf. Despite its name, it is actually an anti virus suite.

360 Internet Security has a small installer and it can be used on PCs with Windows XP and subsequent versions. Installing the software is pretty simple and at times the process may be lengthened owing to downloading virus signatures during installation. Even with malware infested systems, the software fares pretty well and you will be able to complete installation in safe mode too. One downer is that its bootable rescue CD comes in Chinese. The app does not come with any bundled utilities.

360 Internet Security has an appealing interface which is uncluttered as well. Amazing as it may sound, the app uses three different engines to ensure you get real-time protection and top notch scanning. The engines are represented by three icons on its interface. They are Bitdefender AV Engine, QVM II Engine and 360 Cloud Engine. By tinkering a little with app interface you can find settings for numerous functions like on demand scanning, privacy protection and antiphishing etc. The app gets high scores from independent virus test labs like AV-Test and Virus Bulletin.

The software segregates scanning tasks in 5 logical steps to eliminate any virus or rogue app hiding in any part of the system. You get the option to select scanning speed. While the app displays found malware after a scan it does not rank risks by level of threat.  At times, the app may ask you to restart the PC to remove a serious threat. Its malware detection rate matches that of well known free antivirus software like avast! and AVG Free edition. 360 Internet Security also does a nice job of cleaning up malware though it may take a while to start the cleanup at times. It also blocks malicious files at url and download levels quite effectively.

The software also has a behavior based scanning to intercept zero day threats. When the app detects a malicious activity, it offers you 30 second to decide what to do with app after which it gets blocked by it. It is quite effective but the downside is that some valid and safe apps also get caught by it. It has a high rate of reporting false positives.

Positive Points:
•    Easy installation even on virus affected PCs.
•    Intuitive interface.
•    Good malware detection and cleanup performance.

Negative Points:
•    High rate of false positives.
•    No bundled utilities.
Given the fact, it comes for free and offers good malware protection, there is nothing much to say against 360 Internet Security. The software combines the power of three antimalware engines and the result is quite evident. Its attractive and intuitive interface and ease of inhalation makes things easier for first time users. However, users looking for a proper internet security suite will be disappointed as it is basically an antivirus suite. The app has a tendency of reporting false positives but that alone cannot be deemed as a deal breaker.

Rating: 3.5/5
