Most businesses have anti-virus (AV) software installed on the desktops and laptops. We see in the News weekly that having AV software that has not been configured properly can permit the virus to load itself on the computer. Additional tweaks are required to get the best results from the AV software.
Malware had become the most destructive piece of software every known to man. We find that more often than not AV software cannot detect and stop all malware types. We strongly recommend a dedicated malware program to detect and quarantine. Selection can be trickly, but don’t worry – we’re here to help.

Each business requires a strong encryption plan for all of their assets that can be connected to over the company wired or wireless network or the Internet.
