What is it?
Antivirus is an essential line of defence against malware (malicious software) attacks, like viruses, worms and Trojan horses. It can also prevent or remove adware, spyware, ransomware and other types of malicious programme. Simply put, it works by searching your files for viruses and checking for any suspicious programme behaviour that might indicate an infection.
Why does your business need it?
Antivirus has long been a key part of any business cybersecurity plan. And today, it’s more important than ever, because cybercriminals are increasingly targeting companies rather than individual users, since their data is usually more valuable, should they want to sell it or hold it ransom.
Any kind of malware can wreak havoc: just one infected computer can open up your whole network, putting your data, employees and even your clients and customers at risk. And even relatively minor attacks can cause significant downtime until the infection is located and removed and damaged or deleted files are restored.
That’s why it’s vital to install antivirus on every device in your company, and to teach your employees how they can help to protect against these kinds of threats.
