360 Total Security Essential (formerly 360 Internet Security) addresses all the users that are on the look out for a antivirus solution that has no price tag and looks good at the same time.
Yes, we know, it is not all about the looks when it comes to computer programs, but a well-drawn graphical user interface never hurt anyone. This is the case here, too, with 360 Total Security Essential. A very popular pick in China, 360 Total Security Essential did not gathered many fans outside China mainly because people already have stuck with an antivirus application.
While many believe that Chinese software is low-quality in general because they might have heard that and never investigated it, 360 Total Security Essential surely sets a new standards for aesthetics as well as performance for a Chinese product that does not make you reach in your pocket in order to utilize it at full capacity.
First things first, 360 Total Security Essential bring a breathe of fresh air to your system, packing a rather wonderful GUI with modern elements and little (if any) kitschiness. Alongside these spectacular looks, this particular piece of software brings additional capabilities to the concept of ‘Internet Security’ as it also represents a simple yet complete antivirus solution.
Well, not that simple since it sports three different engines for scanning and real-time protection. Firstly, there is the 360 Cloud Engine, the one implemented by the developer, then come along the QVM II Engine as well as the Bitdefender AV Engine. Yes, that’s right, the Bitdefender AV Engine. This engine assembly does a great job against malware when it comes to cleaning and even proactive defense.
To sum it all up, 360 Total Security Essential can really compete with the big guys such as ZoneAlarm Free Antivirus + Firewall, Avast! Free Antivirus, AVG Antivirus Free or Ad-Aware Free Antivirus+. It has the look and it also has the power to fight the malware and keep your system virus-free and your mind on the important things.
