As we all know, anti-virus solutions are software that’s installed on a computer system to protect it from viruses, spyware, malware, Trojans, phishing attacks, rootkits, and spam attacks, as well as any other cyber threats. What is sometimes overlooked is that degree of effectiveness that antivirus provides an organization for security and protection against malware and other threats as outlined above.
We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to ensure that your organization has a sound implementation of a centrally managed anti-virus solution. Often times we speak with potential prospects that are SMB-size up to larger scale enterprises that reveal that they do not have a centrally managed anti-virus solution implemented for their employee base.
Any way you cut it, antivirus software is an essential part of a solid holistic security strategy, not to mention a requirement for various compliance standards. Antivirus protection is essential for any organization wanting to protect their data, applications and systems from becoming breached or corrupted. Antivirus software is the first line of defense for security preventing malicious actors from entering the environment. Prevention is much more effective than painful remediation. It’s far more effective AND CHEAPER to have a system proactively in place designed to detect and prevent virus attacks than having to spend extensive time and loads of money remediating systems and servers to restore your organization’s environment and operations.
Also, from a business reputation perspective, an organization should never take on the risk of a virus or malicious attack exposing confidential/sensitive data or client data. Business reputations with regard to enterprise security and data breaches are very difficult to recover from. Do the right thing and make the smart move to ensure you have a reliable, effective anti-virus solution implemented for your organization.
