Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe. ― Albert Einstein ― Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.

No amount of security software is going to defend against today's sophisticated malware writers for those who do not practice safe computing and stay informed. It has been proven time and again that the user is a more substantial factor (weakest link) in security than the architecture of the operating system or installed protection software.
Security is all about layers and not depending on any one solution, technology or approach to protect yourself from cyber-criminals. The most important layer is you...the first and last line of defense. Security begins with personal responsibility and includes a comprehensive approach. Common sense, good security habits, safe surfing, understanding security and safe computing are essential to protecting yourself from malware infection. Thus, a multi-layered defense using an anti-malware and anti-exploit solution to supplement your anti-virus combined with common sense and following Best Practices for Safe Computing provides the most complete protection.
The end user needs to constantly educate about the latest malware threats and those recommendations by security experts on how to protect themselves. If the user is an employee of an organization, that also means following policy and procedures for the use of computer equipment and related resources implemented by the agency IT Department. Knowledge and the ability to use it is the best defensive tool anyone can have.
