Bugs & Viruses Traditional AV vendors continue to lag behind online criminals when it comes to detecting and protecting against new and quickly evolving threats on the Internet, according to a report by Cyveillance. Testing shows that even the most popular AV signature-based solutions detect on average less than 19% of malware threats. That detection rate increases only to 61.7% after 30 days. Even after 30 days, many AV vendors cannot detect known attacks.

Unless you are essentially forced to use said system as your employer uses fairly specialised software that has no alternatives on other platforms.

I would love to be free of Windows at work, but between a specialised piece of software and the fact that switching to an alternative would confuse half the staff, it's never going to happen.
