EScan Internet Security is relatively straight-forward in its approach. Its design is simple and non-flashy (by any means); but, then again, it has a serious job to do. This reviewer has to admit that it’s performance on our system was not as great as what we expected it to be. It features real-time virus scanning, which scans files, emails and websites, looking for those trojans, spyware and adware that might threaten your computer.

Then there’s also the real-time content scanning that checks your email bodies for confidential data, file size, prohibited content and so on. The heuristic scanning tracks the evolution of viruses so as to keep you up-to-date with what is going in on.

Its antispam feature blocks spam and phishing emails using advanced spam blocking technologies. It also has a neat feature of data theft prevention with USB control, which prohibits any unauthorised used of USB based portable storage devices such as flash drives.

Its firewall and traffic monitoring tool displays TCP/IP activities on your system using the in-built Network Monitoring Tool and it also has logs and extensive reports that provide consolidated activity reports for review and analysis.

It's by far the cheapest option on our list and the newest kid on the block, but it will protect your PC. It will be interesting to see how the eScan Internet Security Suites develop over the next few years.
