- Resource hungry
CA Internet Security Suite is a complete application for protecting your system from internet threats. It also carries out file backups, system scans and regulates kids' use of the web.
CA Internet Security Suite covers four areas of security: Files, Viruses, Internet and Children. Within these modules you can scan for viruses and malware, secure documents, backup important files and protect your PC from identity theft. For children, there's a parental blocking system, that should keep kids away from unsuitable websites.
The Internet module includes real time protection for files and incoming emails. You can start or schedule a system scan whenever you want, although they are very slow. In general CA Internet Security Suite is a heavy resource user, and even though alerts are configurable, they still interrupt and slow down your PC. Scans are deep, but don't discriminate between good and bad internet cookies, which is annoying.
CA Internet Security Suite is comprehensive, and does do what it clams. It's very easy to use, with an interface that anyone will understand. However, it's too resource hungry and intrusive to recommend wholeheartedly.
