Software, Guides & Tools

Not only private individuals, but also the self-employed and companies are increasingly exposed to the dangers of cybercrime. reviews and compares software & tools that increase the security of your IT infrastructure.

Antivirus Software
The Internet offers unlimited possibilities for cybercriminals to deceive, trick, steal, rob, and manipulate unsuspecting users through ever-mutating viruses, worms, Trojans, and other malware. Antivirus programs identify and neutralize threats before they can damage your computer and/or device. The number of providers is huge, with each promising the best, most user-friendly, or efficient security solution.

VPN Services
Free Wi-Fi is offered in more and more places. From cafes and restaurants to train stations and airports, wireless internet can be found, often even without password protection, practically everywhere. However, as soon as you connect to such a network, you are immediately visible and vulnerable to all of its users. The only real defense against this is through a virtual private network (VPN).

Cloud Backup
Cloud storage and backup services have grown immensely popular over the past few years for a number of reasons. One of the most important of these is what is referred to as "fire-and-forget"; basically, configure them once, and they'll keep working until you tell them to do differently. As soon as changes are made to your files or a new one is added, the service takes note, with the change visible within a short period of time in the cloud, so long as your device has an Internet connection.

Password Manager
The amount of online accounts is constantly growing – email accounts, shopping platforms and, of course, streaming services. For convenience's sake, most users use the same login data for all of their account: the same email address and the same, easy-to-remember password. And this makes the lives of data thieves a whole lot easier: They only need to hack one single account to get access to the rest as well. A password manager prevents this by giving each account its own password.

IT-Security Tools has developed various tools that you can use to check and improve the security of your website, your accounts and your passwords.
