Anti-Virus Really Necessary Or Not?

Jun 25, 2010

One of the advantages of get apple products is that your in a virtual gated community, so I read somewhere, but anyway...

I found some antivirus but it cost like 50 bucks.
VirusBarrier - First Apple iPad Antivirus and Firewall

dont know if it is really necessary as all i use it for is web surfing and emails some apps..

I have 3 laptops that have windows Vista, with no anti virus, no adware, nothing, just used to surf the web and play stocks online, never had a prob., but I dont install anything on them nor DL anything; but those arnt my main puter (my main pc and LT run windows7 (64 bit on pc)) i have nod32 and adware and a bunch of other small programs to keep it safe.. They never had probs at all..

has anybody got any anti virus for ipad, anything free out there?

Any Anti Viruses Or Virus Scans For Ipad 1- Keeps Crashing?

May 26, 2012

My ipad1 keeps crashing from inside apps, normally while typing - goes back to the home screen. Haven't updated lately as heard there were issues, have updated apps. iPad has never been jail broken, and there's also been issues with it not recharging. Have reset it more than once and it's still happening, I see apps available through iTunes for anti-virus (as this is now all I can think it is), but not sure which ones are dodgy so won't try them or does ipad1 only have a year lifespan (considering what it cost nit impressed with that idea)

Using FaceTime And IMessage Behind A Firewall?

May 18, 2012

I work in a health care organization in the field of telemedicine located in the midwest. As of late, iPads are being deployed to physicians for use in clinical settings for use with access to EMRs and additonal app resources for patient care. I am receiving an increased amount of inquires related to the use of FaceTime as method for telemedicine encounters. I am interested in learning what level of encryption is used for FaceTime. The level of ecryption is related to HIPAA compliance and would affect the use of FaceTime for clincal encounters. Could FaceTime be considered HIPAA compliant?

Security Tips - Firewall And Antivirus Software

Jun 14, 2010

In the light of the recent AT&T security breach, computer repair and support company Rescuecom has come up with five top tips to help you ensure that your iPad is protected. Some of them you?ve probably thought of already, but there might be a couple of gems in there that haven?t occurred to you.1. Turn off the 3G Network ? Although AT&T has said that it?s dealt with the threat, if you?re still a little anxious, turning off 3G temporarily will protect your data from any further attack.2. Request a new SIM from AT&T ? The ICC-ID numbers that the hackers were able to access were attached to each user?s SIM. Changing the SIM will therefore change the ICC-ID as well, and you?ll no longer need to worry about it having been compromised.

Software For Increasing Security - Installing Firewall For Security

Jun 18, 2010

I have only had my I pad since Monday and I absolutely love it. I use it like a mini laptop. I do a lot of online shopping paying bills etc and was wondering if there is a firewall program already installed. If not is there something I can download for security.

I am not technical at all so if someone could give me an easy explanation I would really appreciate it.
