The Outsiders

Protecting Company Data from Outsiders

If you are running any type of business that is connected to the Internet, your database is at risk of being invaded by any number of people that are bent on one of two things, destroying or stealing your critical data. There are only two ways that you can stop this from happening. One is to disconnect from the Internet or, two,  make sure that you have the best possible Layered Security Solution implemented for your type of business, customers and data.

Leaving your entire computer system unprotected with the appropriate security solutions is like owning a bank and not protecting it with security guards.  Both situations are completely untenable and can leave you vulnerable to attacks that can take everything you own. Before you allow this to happen to your company, you need to talk to the experts at Software Security Solutions and let us help provide you with the Layered protection you need.

Does your coat of armour have many colors?

Put a colorful Coat of Armor on Your Network

Your computer network is constantly under siege as long as it remains connected to the web. You have employees that spend their time surfing the web and going to sites that have little to no security, customers sending you email that is just as likely to be infected and many other risks. If you don’t at least a security suite to put up protective barriers, your walls are going to come tumbling down.

The reality is that while one antivirus program is certainly going to help, you need to think more in terms of the old medieval castles when it comes to protecting your computers and network. These castles built a multilayers defense system using moats and several layers of walls to protect the occupants. At Software Security Solutions, we take the same approach to placing an armor shield around your network by using several different solutions to add layers of protection and keep the attackers where they belong, on the outside looking in, through a coat of many colors.

Proper ‘Puter Protection

Are You Properly Protected?

Every time that you or any of your employees logs onto the Internet, your computer system and all of the data that is stored on it are open to attacks from any number of viruses and associated Trojans and worms. If you do not have the very latest anti-virus software installed in your computer systems, you could stand to lose everything or worse yet have all of the information in your database stolen

While there are many different types of anti-virus software on the market, it is not always easy to know exactly which one is going to be the right one for your business. In order to make sure that your business is properly protected at all times, you need to talk to one of the consultants at Software Security Solutions and let us help put together the best possible layered security solution for your business.

One Antivirus is never enough

Is One Antivirus Program Enough?

Most of us now have at least one type of anti-virus software installed on our home computers and feel that – if this is enough for this purpose it should be enough for the ones we use at work, right.

Gong!! The reality is a little more complicated as you have far more to risk on your company’s computers than you do at home and you cannot afford to live with this risk.

Your computers probably have critical information stored on them. You should never be without anti-virus software to protect it and having a suite on Laptops is a must. However, as bad as having your critical information stolen or destroyed would be, if this were to happen to your company computers the repercussions could take years in the courts to straighten out and decide how much will be awarded in damages. To make sure this never happens you need to talk to the experts at Software Security Solutions and get fully protected.

Is your AV picker workin?

You are using Anti-Virus Software – but how did you pick it?

If you are running a business of your own, you have to be connected to the Internet in order to maximize your business potential.

However, being connected to the Internet is not without its own risks. You can be subjected to attacks from numerous forms of viruses, Trojans and worms that can wreak havoc on your entire network; you need to be sure that you are using the latest security solutions to protect yourself. For example;

You will find that there are several different forms of anti-virus software on the market and unless you are very experienced in this form of software, you may not make the best choices to protect your business.

In order to make sure your company has the level of the protection you need to make sure that nothing can happen to your database, contact one of our experts at Software Security Solutions and let us put the right package together for you.

Ever heard this? “You get what you pay for”

What About Those Free Programs?

When you start looking for antivirus software for your business, you are going to see that there are numerous free programs available.  The big question for many people is whether or not this free software is any good at all or if it should be avoided. What you are going to find is that the majority of these free programs work pretty well, if you like limited features, no support and constant advertising.

However, this free antivirus software is intended mainly for home use and is often limited in scope and often does not have all of the features activated. While this might work for use in a home setting, when you are trying to protect your business and all of the sensitive data that is stored in your database, this is not good enough.

Using free AV software may also be illegal for business use from a licensing perspective, so ‘buyer’ beware!

You are going to need a layered security approach such as that offered by Software Security Solutions consisting of the full versions of more than one program to ensure you are fully protected.

 

Its time for REAL TIME protection

Real Time Protection

We are all or at least most of us are well aware of the fact that we need to have some form of antivirus software installed on our computers along with a firewall to keep out the steady stream of attacks from hackers.

The one thing many people do not realize is they need to have real time protection as well. While having firewall and antivirus software that stops external attack is good, it is not enough.

When you are surfing the web or downloading and opening email and files, you are also opening your computer up to attack from within. In order to prevent this, you need to be using antivirus software such as the suite we can provide you at Software Security Solutions. Our layered approach not only provides you with protection from outside hackers, but with full real time protection for all of your email, files and for when you are surfing the web.

 

Anyone seen my mosquito net?

Do You Have Protection?

There is one simple truth that can’t be ignored if you have even one single computer that is connected to the web.  Unless you are running the right Internet security software, you are exposed. It is a little like going into the Okefenokee Swamp without mosquito repellent and no clothes on, you are open to attacks from every direction you can imagine and the results can be, well, painful.

At Software Security Solutions , we believe that just like the layers of protection you would choose for a trip into the swamps, you need Internet security software that is going to provide you with layers of protection. For this we have created a software suite that is designed to protect your computer or computer network from the thousands of daily attacks that it will be subjected to anytime that you connect to the web.

 

Attacks are becoming Stealthy

Are You Being Invaded? How do you know?

Chances are good that if you are running a business of any kind and you are connected to the web; your computer network is under constant silent attack.

You may not even be aware of the fact that it is happening, many of the viruses that attack your computer show no signs of being there, unless you have the right solutions that detects the threats, whatever they may be.

Depending on the threat, it could be silently stealing personal information such as credit card data, passwords or the information that is stored on your hard drive. No one can afford to lose this type of information, nor can they afford this kind of security breach.

When you have to be connected to the Internet, you need to have the kind of layered protection that Software Security Solutions can  provide to ensure that no one can access your computer network or database.
