Antivirus, Spyware and Firewall Protection is Essential

Safeguarding your computer data and protecting your private information should be the number one priority for everyone who uses the Internet. With over one billion users worldwide, the internet presents the largest personal security threat mankind has ever known. The growing number of broadband and wireless internet connections raises security risks even more as this type of "always on" connection leaves the door wide open for intruders and hackers. The need for antivirus software, an anti spyware product, and a firewall of some kind is absolutely essential for online security.

Today's new breed of cyber-criminal is highly skilled at programming, networking, hacking, spamming, and social engineering. He can easily plant spyware and trojan on your computer without your knowledge, or masquerade as your bank and trick you into giving up your account information. A click of a mouse or quick look at an email can instantly turn your PC into a robot that is used to send out spam or carry out network attacks.

Of the more than one billion computers on the internet today, it is thought that less than 20% are adequately protected against common security threats. This leaves around 800,000,000 opportunities for identity theft, data theft, hijacking, viruses and malicious spyware. If we assume that most people use the internet for legitimate purposes, and only .01% of users are criminals, there would be at least 100,000 intruders and thieves online looking for an unprotected victim. By using antivirus software, a spyware remover, and a personal firewall with privacy protection you can nearly eliminate the risks associated with using the internet. For those who would like to read more about the high risk of information theft on the internet, and how cyber criminals do it, here is an excellent article on the subject.

Computer systems across the world are constantly threatened by viruses and worms. These malwares are created by disgruntled or malicious programmers, who let loose their treacherous creations on unwary hosts. Oftentimes, the damage that is caused is immense.

With a virus that spreads automatically, a huge number of computers can be infected through the Internet and can be very hard to control. Because of this, the virus is the greatest danger to the security of personal computers today.

Companies in the antivirus industry discover large numbers of viruses' everyday. Scores of viruses are latent or dormant and continue to be present long before they are ever noticed. There are viruses that delete files, displays pop-ups, exchange the buttons of your mouse, uninstall Internet Explorer, they can even slow down your computer's fan.

A computers efficiency is reduced tremendously due to viruses and if that wasn't enough they also corrupt files as well as stored data. For that reason, it is imperative to locate and eliminate viruses before the damage occurs.

Protect Your Company From Malicious Viruses With the Proper Tools

Computer viruses are a fact of life. Have been for years. Irritating little creatures that can be mere annoyances or outright network killers. Avoiding and defeating them isn't nearly as difficult as it used to be. With the proper knowledge, applying and using some modern tools and technologies can help you squash these bugs. So, how do you protect yourself?

3 easy steps:

1) Install antivirus software on all desktops, laptops and server and keep it up to date. Manually open the software occasionally and verify that it's updating. I can't stress that enough. Out of date antivirus software is useless. Even software that's a few days out of date. Check to see that it's downloading updates and that those updates are installing. We like the AVG line of antivirus, but there are MANY good choices.

2) Learn the warning signs of a virus. When a virus is detected and your antivirus software detects it, what do you do? Learn how to react when your antivirus package detects a virus. Clicking the wrong button could tell the software to ignore the virus altogether.

3) Install gateway antivirus protection. Many routers (not the residential Linksys, NetGear jobs) have gateway antivirus add-ons that will strip a virus off at your internet connection before it ever gets to your PCs. We like the Sonicwall line. This level of protection becomes more important every day. If you can stop the virus from ever hitting the desktop PCs or laptops, 95% of the battle is won.

If you can accept the fact that virus writers are trying hard to infect you, then you can accept the fact that taking a few small, easy steps can help keep you and your network well protected!
