The first line of defense is a strong Firewall
The primary function of a firewall is to only let “allowed” activity onto your network. If you are running a business and only using the standard Windows Software Firewall or a consumer level hardware firewall you are vulnerable to a significant number of infections. You need a robust firewall (such as a Watchguard Firebox) that will allow you to restrict access to web sites and most importantly, severely limit an individual’s ability to download software onto your company’s computer. You want to make sure that your network administrator approves any software that is going to be downloaded onto your network. We can help choose and configure a firewall for your business that will significantly improve the security of your network.
Let OSG help you choose the correct Virus Software for your Business
Once information gets through your firewall and onto your network you need to have the ability to scan and clean this data. You need robust virus software which must be kept up-to-date with the latest security patches. Scans of all of the computers on your network must be regularly scheduled. Popular virus programs include Bitdefender, Kaspersky, Trend Micro, Norton and McAfee. Remember, no virus software will catch every potential problem. Let us help you choose the right virus software for your business.
Keep your Operating System Software Up-to-Date
It is critical that you have the procedures in place to automatically update the operating system of all computers on your network. Microsoft and Apple are constantly upgrading their operating systems, providing enhancements and closing any new security holes that have been discovered.
Virus, Malware and Spyware Detection and Removal
No matter how careful you are, you may eventually get Malware or Spyware on your computer. At the first sign of trouble make sure that you run a complete virus scan on your computer. If that does not solve the problem (Remember, Virus software does not catch ALL problems) you will want to run software that is specifically designed to eliminate Malware and Spyware. Malwarebytes is a very powerful tool that does a good job finding and eliminating Malware and Spyware. If you still have problems after running a complete virus scan and Malwarebytes; you will need to run a more powerful tool like ComboFix. This is not a tool to be used by a novice; it is powerful but can cause some problems with your computer if not used correctly.
