Protect your business PC from the inside
Without the proper IT security, you risk suffering from disruptions that can cause system downtime, lost data and lost businesses. Here are a few suggestions to keep your PCs protected.
Are Anti-Virus Software Worth it?
Learn more about the potential risks of viruses and how anti-virus software helps.
Anti-virus software is one of the more important tools for keeping your PC healthy. Almost every computer is now connected to the Internet and vulnerable to the many dangers that exist out there.
A Closer Look at Malware Attacks
As malware techniques are growing in complexity, so are the opportunities for attack. From the onset of virtualization and cloud computing to the explosion of mobile devices and IT consumerization, today’s computing trends inherently add security risks. Hackers and cybercriminals are now able to work within a much larger “attack surface” in terms of devices, data, applications, and systems—and only need to find one way in. They can also more easily take advantage of interconnected, global networks to propagate attacks.
If your computer is infected, you might lose valuable business data, compromise your business to third party or even force you to be unable to access anything on your computer. Any computer environment or operating platform is vulnerable to attack.
Unpatched systems are at the biggest risk of being attacked. Always keep your software up to date. You can set up a monthly update schedule or let the auto-updater do the work. This applies to all your programs.
Anti-virus software can help detect and neutralize malware threats to your business. There are many effective solutions out there. When you do choose one for your business, make sure you update it regularly and educate your employees on best practices to keep them and your business safe.
