to infect PCs with outdated operating systems, unpatched server hardware,
and people who can’t resist clicking the links in spammy email. Therefore,
antivirus still needs to be part of any comprehensive cyber defense plan.
same time, however, antivirus software can no longer thwart today’s complex
malware, let alone zero-day exploits, of which malware is just one
component. Antivirus software uses static signatures to detect malware, and
it often takes as long as three months to isolate a given strain and then
issue the necessary security patch. According to researchers at McAfee
Labs, at least 100,000 new pieces of malware are released in the wild every
single day; therefore, this static approach is ineffective (at best) in
isolating zero-day exploits, quickly mutating ransomware, or other malware
using advanced delivery mechanisms.
ideal world, trapping malware requires antivirus and anti-malware working
together as part of layered approach to enterprise security. Each solution
would still need frequent updates to handle “the proliferation, the
pervasiveness, [and] perniciousness of attacks that you have today,” says

Your Business Open to Cyber Attacks
Businesses Can Take to Protect Themselves from Cyber Crime.
World Wide Web launched almost 30 years ago, it generated a lot of buzz
about how it would revolutionize the way we do business, but many
questioned whether these projections were fact or just grand words. Today, few can argue that the Internet
has transformed business operations. For example, it has changed the way we
share information, talk to employees, advertise jobs and sell services and
merchandise to customers. It has opened the door to resources from all over
the word. It has become such an essential tool for business success that few
can afford not to have a Web presence.
But the Internet has done more than change the way we work; it
changed the way criminals commit crimes. Cyber criminals view the Internet
as a tool they can use to launch daily cyber attacks such as computer viruses,

Stop waiting for
your technology to break

what if you could keep your IT from breaking in the first place?

systems are monitored 24/7
