According to data revealed by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), there are approximately 300 million hacking attempts performed each day. Ranging from Trojans and malware to ransomware and keyloggers, cyber criminals use a variety of methods to infiltrate networks and steal sensitive data. But there are ways to combat the rise of hacking, including the use of cybersecurity software.
Cybersecurity software consists of programs, applications and other digital tools that are designed to detect, prevent and eliminate common cyber threats.

Antivirus software, for example, is a type of cybersecurity software that, as the name suggests, targets computer viruses. It typically runs in the background, constantly scanning the computer's storage drive for signs of malicious programming. It it detects a potential virus, the antivirus software will attempt to delete or quarantine it so that it doesn't adversely affect the rest of the computer's data.
Cybersecurity software is used by businesses and consumers alike. Consumers can take advantage of the software to protect their personal identity and financial information from theft. While businesses can use cybersecurity software for similar purposes, most use it to protect their networks and data from unauthorized access. When left unsecure, a hacker may infiltrate a business's network to steal its sensitive data. Some hackers may use this stolen data for their own nefarious purposes, whereas others will simply sell it on the black market.
