Security and Virus Protection

Security and Virus protection is the effective prevention of viruses, worms, adware and Trojan horses from getting onto or infecting computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones as well as removing any malicious software code that has already infected the devices.

 
Virus protection is most times now bundled with anti-spyware and anti-malware capabilities. It’s critical for companies to have installed the latest Virus Definitions & Security Updates because any computer without virus protection software installed will be infected within minutes of connecting to the internet
 
Virus protection software’s perform some of the following basic functions: 
  • Scan specific files or directories for any malware or known malicious patterns
  • Allow users or companies to automatically schedule scans
  • Allows quick initiation of scans of specific files, computers or flash drive.
  • Remove any malicious code detected whilst sometimes notifying users of such infection with option to clean the file, delete or quarantine the file.
  • Monitor the ‘health’ of computers in the organisation
