    Each security company have advantage in specific part of security
    So which is better make your own combination or using security suite which more related and not conflicted

    For me I use security suite with another antimalware and firewall
    To gain more security

    They are eset smart security and spyshalter firewall

    It is better to disable one firewall

    In general I prefer Security Suite (Anti-MalWare + FireWall), because for sure They are better integrated.

    To have 2 similar modules trying to do the same (because a supposed better protection) is a false premise, in fact this may paradoxically give rise to less security in the system...

    I prefer a good security suite, because security tasks are guaranteed by a single application, and so it is also more stable and surely without conflicts.

    I also prefer Internet Security, but sometimes, it can be helpful to choose separate applications to differentiate the protection, or to obtain a good protection, without spending money because most of IS are paid (Comodo IS is also free version).

    Personally, I prefer the security package Antivirus + Firewall because it is to protect the computer from one company.
    wash Antivirus from another company and firewall from another company may create a conflict, but it can not be.
    I understand the full protection packages are paid dearly cost, but they are different competitions, promotions where you can get the full package of protection.
    he often I use free computer security because it is such a possibility.
    And since it is such a possibility that often I use it.

    I prefer anti-exe (Appguard, Voodoo Shield or NoVirusThanksExe) and anti-malware (MBAM or Zemana).

    I prefer an suite instead of combo. Keeps things simple. BUT I always have one or two partitions that carry a combo of my choice just to tinker around or test the performance of both suite and combo. That's on the desktop but in my personal laptop I have the suite there supercharged with AppGuard etc. :)

    Me2, and for the price of a good paid firewall, you can find discounted suites, too.
    Take care that most products don't ask the user for outbound connections but rather autodecide as long as you don't opt to.
    Had this experience with EIS v11, Dr. Web Security Space 11 and AVG Internet Security v2017.
