Don't Let Antivirus Management Slip Through the Cracks

Did you know? Microsoft reported in May that every one in 14 downloads from the Internet may now contain malware code. Keeping your business protected is extremely important. Fortunately there are plenty of tools out there that do most of the protecting for you, but these tools need to be managed and kept up to date.

According to Wikipedia, the definition of Malware is a code or small piece of software that is designed to disrupt or deny operation, gather information that leads to loss of privacy or exploitation, or gain unauthorized access to system resources, or that otherwise exhibits abusive behavior. In other words, Malware is a vague term for something you don't want running on your computer. Malware includes viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, spyware, and many other types of risks that infect computers.

The sheer volume and high risk of malware has triggered an entire global industry dedicated to keeping computers safe, and antivirus definitions are constantly being kept up to date to quell the ever-growing number of threats that exist. Antivirus solutions need to be kept up to date in order for them to protect your PC and network from emerging threats. You'll want to make sure your antivirus software license is current - think of it as a subscription service, and you always want to be running the current year's version, and you will want all of your workstations and servers protected.

Fortunately, with our LANCare Plus platform, we include antivirus management and can handle your subscriptions, virus definition updates, Microsoft Windows security updates, and other proactive maintenance that ensures you get the most out of your IT investments. Contact us at 703-533-LTSI (5874) and ask us about how we can save your company money and reduce downtime by handling day-to-day IT maintenance for your business.
