Internet security and an antivirus program are almost the same in terms of purpose, they both help protect the system from unwanted attacks and malwares that might penetrate the computer.

It also has spyware detection. And this is the best part, it monitors the computer’s firewall including the inbound and outbound connection of the machine.
It can easily block different outside attacks.
