Do You Know the 4 Main Threat Actor Types?

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.

If that's what you're looking for, you should add protection at the network level, not on the desktop.

Consider a Barracuda NG firewall or a SonicWall with UTM features enabled. They can scan files as they're downloaded to catch viruses and malware, preventing them from ever reaching your desktop. They scan files in http, ftp, imap, smtp, and pop3 tcp streams.

You can also take advantage of their web filter technology to restrict access to sites known as black hat.

This is no substitute for antivirus as well. Good security involves multiple layers of protection so if one method doesn't catch your virus/malware, another can.

I have those on the network. I am more interested in having something that scan websites live. We have a Sonicwall already doing its job.

I am looking for something that is very deep packet inspection and application pervasive.

Your sonciwall does UTM? That's the real-time stuff, it doesn't get much deeper than scanning every packet for virus signatures.

I'll start with the preface that no program is 100% effective. Different needs for different folks; so try out the suggestions and see what works best for you.
Sandboxie. Forcing the browser to always run sandboxed and automatically delete contents on exit.  
I don't like the fact the Antivirus programs are reactive; I prefer something sandboxed, which is proactive.  
Also, it uses FAR less resources than any AV programs I've tried; including the super light Kaspersky.  

Here is a great video showing how it works:

Couple of suggestion to heighten situation awareness
a) Client - online (cloud service to multi AV scanning engine) and offline (standalone thin client residing in VM or Remote Desktop Services)
@ http://www.opswat.com/products/metadefender-for-secure-access
@ http://www.fireeye.com/products/products_page.php?id=4&keywords=Security_Appliances_-_Malware_Analysis

b) Network gateway to intranet (not just IPS, IDS but with Anti-malware scan engine)

c) Real time monitoring of threats (may also consider honeypot)
