What is a Managed Anti-Virus Service?
Malware takes down the most sophisticated enterprises almost daily. It’s cheap, easily obtained and very powerful. Users can easily be duped into running it, and it’s constantly changing.
An Anti-Virus solution will keep users and connected devices – within the network or on public networks – safe from sophisticated online threats.
Managed Anti-Virus is utilising a third party like MobileCorp to install, maintain and monitor the software, as well as take remedial and recovery action.
Why apply Anti-Virus Software?
An anti-virus solution will keep users and connected devices – within the network or on public networks – safe from sophisticated online threats.
Anti-virus helps to keep both known and emerging malware off workstations and servers.
It will stay up to date with the latest threats using traditional signature-based protection, but also protect against new viruses using sophisticated heuristic checks and behavioural scanning.
Enterprises are being taken down daily. Malware has been a prominent threat to enterprises and SMBs, since the mid-2000s.
Viruses, ransomware, spyware and trojans have grown increasingly advanced in their capabilities for spreading, evading detection, encrypting files, locking down endpoints, and disrupting business.
