One in nine Internet users globally do not use a comprehensive security solution

G Data Security Survey 2011 revealed that one in nine Internet users globally do not use a comprehensive security solution. Globally, four out of ten users consider free virus protection solutions as equal to paid security packages in terms of performance and the level of security technology.  These results are worrying, because such Internet users are easy targets for cyber criminals. Nearly nine out of every ten Internet users around the world use a security solution to protect themselves against Internet-based threats. That’s the good news. In contrast, eleven percent of Internet users surf the web with virtually no protection. However, 47% of the participants use a free security solution. 42% of Internet users with a free AV package believe they are actually using a fully protected suite, with a further 10% not even knowing what type of solution they have installed.
