Antivirus software is essential for protecting computers and networks from malware, including viruses, worms, and ransomware. It scans files and programs against a database of known threats and uses heuristic analysis to detect new, unknown malware. Features typically include real-time protection, automatic updates, and various scanning options. Modern antivirus programs also offer additional security features such as firewalls and phishing protection, making them crucial for maintaining system integrity and user privacy in both personal and business environments.
