    Whether you're a family or a business, protecting your digital assets and devices has never been more important. According to the University of Maryland, hackers attack every 39 seconds — on average 2,244 times a day. It should come as no surprise that protecting yourself with one of the best antivirus software solutions is a must these days.
    When trying to sieve through cybersecurity jargon, words such as antivirus and firewall often come up when selecting a product to help protect against threats. However, are firewalls still really needed with the antivirus solutions out there?
    Antivirus and firewalls work in unison

    Rather than having one or the other, security products work best together rather than alone.

    I have forgotten firewall software even existed, got so used to the routers and other security doing most of the work. In the past, people would leave their computers wide open with absolutely no logging in. this has changed and in a lot of ways eliminated the need for software firewalls for general home users.
