What Virus Protection Defends Against
As malware techniques are growing in complexity, so are the opportunities for attack. From the onset of virtualisation and cloud computing to the explosion of mobile devices and IT consumerisation, 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.
How Virus Protection Helps
Anti-virus software can help detect and neutralise 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.
