Spyware – Adware – Malware - Virus - Hackers - Hijacked browser – Identity Theft. Sound familiar? Unfortunately these are terms that are heard far too frequently within the IT industry. All or any one of the above can severely threaten your computer's security and if left in place, can critically compromise the security of your PC or laptop. New threats are reported by the industry everyday; but before you lose faith in the power and usefulness of the internet, remember the importance of Internet security software and carefully evaluate what you should be doing to protect yourself from expensive and time consuming computer security breaches.
You may have basic computer anti-virus software installed; maybe even a firewall. Although these can help protect valuable data, some only offer limited protection against some of the more nasty online viruses that are becoming more and more popular with hackers. Put quite simply, often software supplied with your machine is simply not comprehensive enough to protect you from spyware, phishing and some other online threats. Industry experts are regularly reminding us of the growing trend by computer hackers to be able to find loopholes in some off the shelf security packages almost as soon as they are released. Finding ways around anti-virus software has become an obsession for hackers and a nightmare to Internet security software providers who are constantly striving to stay one step ahead and combat the attacker’s attempts of compromising Internet security. Many hackers now resort to Trojan-horses attacks, especially with businesses where there is a high level of inter company communication traffic through email and instant messages. A hacker knows that access to a business network will cause maximum disruption.
It is a well known fact that that the odds of a home or business user getting a virus or spyware attack can be significantly reduced, simply by installing software designed to enhance internet security. Yorkshire IT solutions work in partnership with Eset, who are one of the most experienced Internet security specialists and designers of the award winning NOD32 security software package.
As long as we rely on computers for more and more aspects of our life, there will be unseen threats and new security issues travelling through cyberspace, simply waiting for an opportunity to target our ever increasing number and volume of personal and business data files. Although installing security tools is essential, many people forget that software has to be regularly updated. It is therefore imperative that you choose a software provider that automatically renews your security software as frequently as possible as there will always be attempts by hackers to exploit any holes in a users security system. Eset security software updates automatically and virtually removes the risk of any threat damaging your files. Unlike some common anti-viral software, NOD32 will not slow down or impair the performance of your machine. It will simply work quietly in the background, offering protection 24 hours a day 365 days of the year. Automatically updating to ensure maximum protection.
NOD32 is the only solution worldwide that has consistantly never missed a single "In the wild" worm or virus in this testing since May 1998 and holds the world record of Virus Bulletin 100% Awards, obtaining the 52nd Award in October 2008.
