  • It's the morning after. Cyber Monday 2022 is now behind us and gave us some cracking deals. Can't wait to see what Cyber Monday 2023 has in store for us.

Cyber Monday is almost over but there's still time to bag some cracking bargains.

As we conduct more business online, shop online and just spend more time in a digital world, it’s really important to consider security protection. But antivirus software can be expensive leaving users with little choice as to scale down on threat protection to cut costs. However, today is your lucky day as there are lots of fantastic antivirus software offers to be had, with more being added all the time.When weighing up security-focussed purchases, it’s perhaps worth considering what the cost of not being protected would be to you and your business. That tends to lean into a fairly good ROI in terms of spend to mitigate risk.

That business case can be even more compelling when you factor in some of the Cyber Monday discounts around this year.

As those with nefarious intent grow in number, we also need to stay one step ahead to protect our precious personal and business data from the wrong hands. Thankfully, though, many of the best antivirus deals on offer are also some of the best products around, with hard-to-crack security against malware, phishing, trojans, and viruses. Quite a few of them also come with identity theft protectionsecure cloud storagesystem utilities, secure browsing modules and password managers.

When you consider that security is a must-have rather than a nice-to-have and combine that with some of the best deals we’ve seen on offer in the antivirus world, it becomes a no-brainer to make these kinds of purchases on Cyber Monday rather than delaying and having to spend more to get the same protection.

While you’re in the security mindset, why not read our thoughts on the best antivirus products, the key trends we expect to see on Cyber Monday 2022 and our expert advice for how to nab best deals on the day, if not before.

Know what you need 

You won't get the best deal if you don't know what antivirus products you need to buy. If you head to a retailer on Cyber Monday without doing your research then you'll probably end up with an unsuitable product and a poor price. 

Instead, figure out your preferred antivirus products before Cyber Monday. Our first port of call would be our top three suggestions below – and our list of the best antivirus software

Beyond that, examine what you actually need from your next antivirus product. Each company offers tiers of software with different features, and there's no point paying for the top product if you won't use its additional abilities, like a VPN or password management. 

Similarly, consider if you need an individual product or if you should pay extra for a family package to protect more devices, and if you'd get better value by spending more now on a license that lasts for several years. 

Also think about selecting a few different antivirus products that you'd be happy using rather than just one. That way you can take advantage of better deals rather than being stuck if your chosen software isn't being sold with a huge discount. 

Our final tip when it comes to doing your research? Try a free trial. Loads of antivirus companies allow you to try their products for a month without paying anything, so you can find out if a product is suitable before you spend a penny. 

Know all the tricks

Once you know which antivirus products you'd like to buy, you should put yourself in the best position to save on Cyber Monday. 

Consider setting up your online retail accounts in advance so you don't have to mess around with logging in and registering on Cyber Monday. You don't want to give yourself any extra stress, especially when deals can sometimes be time-limited. 

Scan the internet for discount codes that could unlock even better savings, and sign up to mailing lists – you'll often get better discounts or early access to deals. For instance, there are some great NordPass promo codes available at the moment.

Shop around

Don't restrict yourself to one retailer on Cyber Monday, either. Compare prices across different sites to see if some outlets are cheaper than others – it's a great way to easily save some extra cash. 

If you find that your preferred antivirus software will cost the same amount across the board, see what other incentives are available: certain manufacturers or retailers will offer extra products or other discounts to try and get you over the line. 

Don't forget to stay patient, too. It's tempting to buy immediately if you see your chosen software available at a discount in October or November, but if you wait for Cyber Monday itself then you'll probably find an even better deal.
