Antivirus & Firewall (Security Checkups)

Antivirus & Firewall

Firewalls are imperative on any Internet connection. During the peak of the MS Blaster worm virus outbreak which rapidly spread through the Internet a few years ago and is still in existence today, an unprotected PC could be infected within 8 seconds of connecting to the Internet and without visiting any website or downloading any emails.

Although a firewall will protect your computer against hackers and internet worms you also need reliable antivirus and anti-spyware software for full protection.

Not all security solutions offer you the same level of protection, while there are many low cost products for low risk computer home users these are not suitable for everyone. We commonly see a situation where a user is protected with an inappropriate product, the result of this is that the computer becomes infected. This can be due to the inexperience of the computer user who may have responded to a technical message from the security software in a incorrect way. Another common scenario is where malware has been silently installed on the computer unbeknown to the user who is therefore unaware and doesn't differentiate this infection from their security product.

We are able to advise you on an extensive range of appropriate products and configure the most suitable one for your maximum security. We only recommend proven solutions from the latest and most secure products on the market.

For business customers we can also provide a fully managed service so you have have the peace of mind your computers are fully secure.
