J2 Software has announced the launch of J2 Home Secure, aimed at protecting home/personal users from online fraud and cyber threats. John Mc Loughlin, CEO of J2 Software, says there is a growing trend in online fraud targeting consumers, which includes invoice fraud, fake adverts and refund scams.
“From the home/personal user perspective it can be quite a dilemma of ‘where do you begin’? We have online banking fraud, fake classifieds adverts, phishing scams, malware and viruses, ATM fraud, refund scams, fake invoices and that’s before we even get to advanced threats and most importantly – our children.”
