Antivirus Software and an Expert to Monitor it – the Perfect Combo

Antivirus software has come a long way – but then again, so have viruses! Even though PCs are no longer as susceptible to attacks as they may have been in the past, it’s just as important as ever to have antivirus software running on your computer. Here’s why.

 

Viruses aren’t the only threat anymore

We may feel like we have better control over viruses these days, but viruses are no longer the only threat to our computers and cyber security! Ransomware often enters our computers through phishing emails, and can stop you accessing your files or even disable the PC altogether (and free antivirus software doesn’t protect against ransomware!)

Spyware and Trojans are other modern forms of malware that can severely disable your computer.

 

Why do I need an Expert monitoring things if I have antivirus software?

Even though software has come a long way and is sometimes smart enough to detect and fix any issues that arise on its own, that’s not always the case and that’s when we would take manual control of things to remove whatever virus or malware found its way onto your computer.

At Info-Tech, we have a dedicated specialist (Harry!) whose first task every morning is to ensure all client systems are in as good of shape as they were when we left the day before.

 

What about laptops?

Previously, any off-site computer could only be scanned once it was back in the office. However, with our solution, every single computer is monitored as soon as it comes online – including laptops, and including those that are off-site (for example, for salespeople or those who work from home). This way everyone is protected and monitored all day, every day.

 

How do I choose the right software for my needs?

We have chosen a software that is good for corporations or individuals, with a console management interface that we monitor for you – ensuring you’re always protected without even realizing it.

There are a lot of options, but we ultimately choose ESET for our clients because of its monitoring capabilities, ease of installation and removal, as well as the fact that the software takes into account available resources on your computer – so it protects, while still maintaining speed and performance of your device. You won’t even know it’s there!

For less than your daily lunch spend, we can have your business protected with a top-of-the-line antivirus software – and monitored by our own in-house expert! The risk of losing all of your data because of a virus or malware is just too great to rely on the free antivirus software pre-installed on your computer. If you’re ready to take the next step and protect your data and your device, send us an email or give us a call today at 514-634-INFO (6436) x 101.
