Anti Virus and Anti Spyware
Viruses and spyware are a tremendous risk for business networks. Harmful programs can cut into system resources across your network causing productivity to crawl to a standstill, and some programs can create security gaps leaving your customer data exposed. Cleaning up an infected network can be an expensive and lengthy process, so it’s a good idea to take the time to protect your systems before you’re facing an emergency.
Preventing Virus Infections
Just like a cold virus goes around the office like wildfire, computer viruses spread rapidly within a business network. The best solution to minimize downtime and potential security risks is to try to keep viruses out of your business network in the first place. Some simple office policies can help with this, such as not opening any attachments in emails unless the user knows exactly what it is, and not downloading any programs from the internet onto the office network. With their extensive experience with virus infections, our geeks can help you create internet policy that will significantly reduce the risk of viruses. Unfortunately, that usually isn’t enough to keep your systems virus and spyware free.
Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware Software
Safe browsing habits can help cut down on the number of viruses that find their way onto your network, but if you are serious about keeping your computers in good condition anti-virus software will be a necessary part of your security setup. Anti-virus software will help identify, isolate, and delete harmful programs that wind up on your systems, often before they have time to spread to other computers on the network. Because keeping your virus definitions up to date is vital to the efficiency of any anti-virus solution, our techs can show you how to manage updates and choose a program that fits your needs.
