It sucks enough to get hit with a virus or malware attack on a personal computer you use on the regular. But if that computer also happens to be storing private data, files, or passwords pertaining to your employer, you’re going to find yourself in some preeetty deep shit with the boss man (to put it nicely).

If you’re planning to work from home for an extended period of time, having some proper antivirus software installed on your devices is an absolute must. Amazon just so happens to have two of its bestselling protection programs on sale today (June 1) for 75% off, and both of them are available as digital downloads so you can start using them immediately:
This cross-platform, all-in-one security solution from Norton nabbed a coveted Editor’s Choice Award from our friends over at PCMag (which is owned by Mashable’s publisher, Ziff Davis), who gave it “excellent” scores on their phishing protection and malicious URL-blocking tests. In addition to virus and ransomware protection for up to five devices, the software includes access to a powerful no-log VPN, dark web monitoring, a password manager, a smart firewall, parental controls, and 50GB worth of automatic cloud backups. (Note: The latter two tools are only supported on Windows devices.)
A one-year subscription normally retails for $99.99, but Amazon’s got it on sale right now for just $24.99 — a $75 savings.
Offering protection from malware and online threats like phishing attacks and spam, McAfee’s latest antivirus program gets you complete security for a single Windows device (and 24/7/365 access to free customer support to boot).
Typically $39.99, you can score a year’s worth of access to this software today for just $9.99 — a $30 savings.
