Antivirus & VPN Services (Cyber Security)
One of the biggest reasons consumers and business owners alike turn down premium cyber security and VPN services are the sometimes-pricey annual fees. Black Friday, and obviously Cyber Monday is a great time to invest in your business’s cyber security.
VPNs: Keep a close eye on NordVPN and ExpressVPN this Cyber Monday. These two companies are the leaders in both consumer and business-grade virtual private network services; they also tend to go head-to-head with competitively low sale prices each Cyber Monday. Nord went out of their way to kick off Cyber Monday deals early: New subscribers can score a two-year subscription to NordVPN for $3.16 per month, or $79.00 for the two years which is a massive discount for their regular $298.75 two-year price. Expect similar deals from ExpressVPN who have not released their catalog yet.

Most notably, Norton 360 Deluxe is only $19.99 for the first year, down from $104.99. This particular bundle allows up to five devices to connect per license making it perfect for a business with multiple computer terminals. Another quality antivirus option is Bitdefender whose Total Security bundle is $27 this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This plan also allows up to 5 devices to connect and for an extra $29.99, you can add in Bitdefender’s premium VPN making the package especially lucrative.

If you have been putting off any choice upgrades for your business, this Cyber Monday may be the last day in the calendar year to actually get those items in hand.
