Norton's internet security software is installed on my tax preparation computer, what other cybersecurity software packages or companies are tax preparers using?

I'm always concerned about hackers getting my clients data, and would appreciate comments from other preparers on what they are doing to provide the level of computer protection security our clients expect.

Ive been running Nortons 360 for years, I'm currently not running anything due to all the weird printing/crashing issues with PS this year.....but I will be taking my IT guys recommendation for getting ESET once tax season is over.

I also use Norton's 360 but I turn it off as well because of PS' issues. But I have 2 computers with 2 modems. I have one modem for just my biz computer with a VPN router. I use it for biz and email only. I have a 2nd computer that I use for personal purposes. I protect myself but not as much as my biz computer. Im paranoid about hackers. I will start using google keys on my email and I may use same for PS too.

I think that's the Google Authenticator for 2FA.

Talk about paranoid, I use Comodo Internet Security + Webroot + VPN.  On top of that, I use McAfee + Windows Defender to regularly scan the PC's.

Also, all our computers and HDDs are encrypted.  NAS drive also has cloud access disabled.
