Not all products are equal
Currently, there are nearly 600 million malware infections identified by security researchers, a five-fold increase in five years, which is expected to soon top 1 billion, worldwide. (Independent IT-Security Institute, 2017).
Most companies and organisations whatever their size, use some form of antivirus as standard. Unfortunately, not all products are equal to defending against the ever increasing variety of virus attacks.
Our experienced IT Support team will carefully assess your individual system needs and specify the correct and appropriate set of solutions and procedures, which will maximise protection of your company and its sensitive data.
A virus is basically malware, which can only be spread through human interaction. The malicious lines of code enter a file or computer operating system via an executable file but will only be activated when the user opens the infected programme.
A virus can be easily and unknowingly spread via link sharing among a potentially endless number of machines lacking adequate anti-virus security software.
Trojan malware has the ability to hide itself within a normal file, much like the infamous Trojan horse. When a Trojan is activated, the invisible hacker is able to secretly gather information about a computer user’s operations or create a ‘backdoor’ to allow cyber criminals access. One of the most well-known of cyber crimes is to add the computer to a huge network of infected ‘slave’ machines, known as botnets, for conducting DDoS attacks.
