Every year, cyber-attacks increase in sophistication, accordingly businesses need to be increasingly vigilant in protecting their IT assets from attack.
What is Malware?
Malware is malicious software designed to disrupt or damage a computer system. It appears in many forms; extracting information, preventing access to devices and even theft. Malware attacks continue to cost businesses millions of pounds and compromise data security.
How can Malware be prevented:
Simple steps to help protect your system from threats include increasing user awareness and utilising up-to-date security tools.
Some root causes of malware can occur from user error. Unwittingly clicking on dangerous sites or downloading dubious content, instantly exposes the company to attacks. To prevent this, awareness and education provide the best assurance as a first layer of protection against malware.
When it comes to security tools, there are a wide range of options to choose from to protect your network.
Malware security protection tools provide a vital layer within your IT network, robustly securing those mission critical components that are within your infrastructure.
