Single all encompassing security programs can work well for people living average lives without awareness and/or concerns of system overlording. They can simply purchase one of the top five "Suite" Security programs, set it to automatic everything and forget about it. And when their computer develops problems, they can take it into their local repair shop, drop a couple hundred dollars and hope for the best. Or simply buy another computer and pay a clerk to transfer all their files over.
I have a friend who does this. He's not concerned about Big Brother or White Collar Criminal Corporations, and doesn't care one way or another. I think the vast majority of people approach life this way.
However, this not the best possible world. It's a jungle! And the more one takes an active interest in the cutting edge of Global Affairs, the more prying eyes they will attract. And so to rely upon one company's software to automatically provide full protection of ones life and data, is not a prudent approach.
The old, "all eggs in one basket" is a risky role of the dice.
Of course, no one can fully escape Big Brother and stay on-line. Such if life from now on. But we can try to keep the White Collar Criminals away. Like in the Jungle, there are friends and foes, animals of every kind.
What I do for on-line security is not full-proof, but merely adds numerous layers of protection to "reduce to a minimum" the prospect of contamination
