Helpful IT Hint: Web Security

.
Suddenly familiar with terms like Ransomware and Cryptolocker? Ever wonder how things like malware manage to infiltrate your systems despite having an anti-virus installed?

The answer might be your lack of web security. Your business might have anti-virus software but not a strong web security program to support it. While an anti-virus is generally reactive (stopping stuff once it gets into your system), a web security product is proactive and attempts to block intrusions before you are ever aware of their presence.  Many websites are often the culprits of these intrusions so it is important to make sure they these sites are blocked from your users BEFORE they click on them.  Limiting access to certain websites is easily managed by a web security system.

In short, standard anti-virus is no longer enough for complete IT security. New products are being introduced everyday that can help alleviate these concerns . If you would like assistance with re-examining the security of your business, give us a call today at (405) 242-1000.
