The best security software is made in America, according to PC Matic. “Where in the world is your security software developed?” asks PC Matic CEO Rob Cheng in the PC Matic ‘Foreigner’ TV commercial. And that’s a question I hadn’t thought to ask myself over the years – but now that the question is raised, do I want to trust my computer’s security to a foreign company with potentially questionable loyalties?
Maybe it’s all the bad press Russia’s getting these days, but I admit I’d think twice about running Kaspersky anti-virus now. McAfee and Symantec are from India, Bit Defender is Romanian, AVG is Czech… hey, I’m beginning to feel kind of uncomfortable all at once. If all our cyber-stuff is accessible to programs made in foreign nations (some with authoritarian governments), just how safe is it?
PC Matic Customer service and tech support is located in the USA, staffed by Americans whose first language is English. (Remember “Peggy,” the bearded credit-card customer-service representative in the Discover Card commercial?) With a new Facebook cover photo that proudly proclaims “Made and Supported in the USA” over an image of the Stars and Stripes, PC Matic is putting foreign-made security software on notice – not only can it block viruses and malware, close security holes in Java and Flash and keep your computer running faster, it also keeps more Americans working!
