Cyber Security

The best way to avoid getting your computer infected is to practice safe browsing habits, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t need an antivirus program on your computer.

Good browsing habits are the best defense. Avoid downloading files from unfamiliar sites, suspicious sources, or clicking on links from people you don’t know. These practices will reduce your risk of becoming infected, but not eliminate the risk. New flaws in programs are constantly being discovered, and malicious programmers are exploiting these flaws in greater numbers. Sometimes even visiting a website you trust can put at risk if a virus has been planted on that website, or on one of the links that the website may use. Typically when you visit a website, that website is linked to many others for storage, ads, links, etc. Any one of those websites can contain a threat that can find its way onto your computer.
So yes antivirus is a must, as is a firewall. Network firewalls must do more than just secure your network. They must also ensure you have uninterrupted network availability. Your Firewall must be the ideal security solution for your home network as well as managed service customers, and any other organizations with complex, network infrastructures.
