Consider This

3. A hacker gains access to a network or computer by illegal means just to prove he or she can, but a cracker gains the same access to a network or computer with the intent to damage the system, steal data, gain information, and any other malevolent action.

5. A hacktivist is a person or group that has the same computer skills as a hacker or cracker and they reasonably believe they are doing something for the greater good of everyone.  The action can be politically and or socially motivated.

7. A botnet is a group of computers that is remotely accessed by cybercriminals to perform nefarious actions to other networks.  Often times the computer that is part of this botnet is called a zombie.

Here is a list of features offered by Panda Security located at http://www.pandasecurity.com/usa/enterprise/solutions/cloud-protection/ for security of enterprises:

Robust protection

Minimized costs and reduced resource consumption.

Resource-friendly

Increased productivity

Easy to install, use and maintain.

Total control

Proven and reliable services. Full assistance; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round.

Both systems offer a lot more features for enterprises compared to security solutions for home use. These systems offer more features than personal security software and they should.  Enterprises have way more to lose when their systems are compromised.  Businesses can fail severely if found to have an unsecure system and customers will not want to return to their site after a breach was discovered on an enterprise system.
