360 Total Security Review

Tina de Pierre
A freeware antivirus and general online protection application
A review of 360 Total Security by Tina de Pierre

360 Total Security is an anti-malware and antivirus program produced by Chinese developer "Qihu". One of the advantages of 360 Total Security is its reliance on multiple antivirus engines which allows for better detection of malware. It has its own "360 Cloud Engine" along with the free definitions from Avira and Bit Defender.

Even though the name might suggest it, 360 Total Security isn't really an all-in-one security application; that is, it doesn't include a firewall and other sometimes necessary modules.

The modes offered by 360 Total Security including balanced and performance. The scanning modes, depending on what's required are "Full", "Quick" and "Manual". The full scan is obviously the most comprehensive. Additional options and customizations are offered in the manual mode as you might suspect.

In addition to being a standard antivirus scanner, 360 Total Security also includes web page scans, download scans and protection against online fraud and phishing attempts.

Other tools included in this application are turning off unnecessary services and startup programs, a cleaning utility to remove temporary files.

In conclusion: 360 Total Security is a multi-engine antivirus scanner which uses at the very least 2 different respectable antivirus definition sets: Bit Defender and Avira. Its other tools are probably unnecessary but not useless.
