antivirusThreats from viruses, hackers and malware are very high, and they pose serious risk to your business. The majority of viruses are designed to steal your data – such as credit card numbers, online bank account details, and other valuable assets like login names and passwords. Other viruses are there to specifically cause problems for your business.

Mid 2013 saw an increase in industry-specific viruses, for example viruses designed to delete data irrecoverably in the oil and energy sector. These viruses and many others can be crippling to a business.

Late 2013 saw an increase in ransomware. These viruses take over your computer, encrypting all of the files on its hard drive, or on your shared network. One such example is the Cryptolocker virus, which uses military grade encryption to lock you out of your files, and sets a time limit for you to make payment in return for the decryption key.

Recently, a new virus called GameOver Zeus (also known as GOZeus and P2PZeus) has risen to prominence, and is responsible for over £60 million worth of theft. It also distributes the CryptoLocker virus.

Netstar’s managed antivirus solution will ensure you are protected against malicious software such as GOZeus and CryptoLocker.

Viruses pose significant threats to your data and your customers’ data. It is vitally important that you have the right security and antivirus software in place.

Ensure you have a backup and disaster recovery plan in place

Due to the constantly evolving nature of cyber threats, anti-virus software cannot be guaranteed 100% effective. It is therefore of paramount importance that you also have a reliable backup and disaster recovery solution in place. In the unlikely event that you are attacked, you can simply restore to an earlier backup and get on with business as usual.
