Anti-Virus & Anti-Spam - Your first line of cyber defence.

Anti-Virus & Anti-Spam

Every time you or any of your colleagues click or tap, they could be about to let a virus into your business. Which is why it is so important to have the right protection.

Our Antivirus and Antispam solutions work together to reduce the risk to your business from cybercrime.

Antivirus is like a sentry guarding entry points. It scans everything coming in and out of your device to make sure it’s not a threat. This can be emails, files and links coming in, or websites you’re trying to access. Your antivirus keeps you safe by preventing the download or deployment of malicious files.

Antispam helps keep you safe and makes you more efficient. Malevolent spam comes in the form of phishing attacks. These emails don’t carry the kind of direct threat an antivirus would detect. They seek to persuade you to behave in a certain way, such as sending them money. Distracting spam comes in the form of emails you don’t want and never asked for. Antispam detects and quarantines spam and phishing emails to keep you safe and your inbox uncluttered.

Using the right business-grade Antivirus and Antispam gives strong first-line protection against cybercriminals.

Anti-Virus

Not all antivirus solutions are made equal, and it can be hard to determine which is the best for your business. That’s why we’ve done the work for you! We’re 100% independent and not tied to any of our solutions. We continually scan the marketplace for new solutions and work with customers to understand what’s important to them.

Here are some of the most common antivirus questions from our customers and how our chosen solution answers them.

Is free anti-virus enough?

Is our free antivirus solution not enough?

 

Free antivirus is free for a reason. Some infrequently update virus definitions leaving you exposed between updates. Some only update software when prompted by you. At worst this can lead to the antivirus solution itself becoming a risk. Building responsive and robust security takes time and effort, which costs money. Only paid solutions can offer you the protection you need.

Why did my PC get slower when I installed my current antivirus?

Many antiviruses use your PC to store all the information and do all the processing needed to scan for viruses. This can use a large amount of storage space, which can slow your PC. Our solution does the majority of it’s processing in the cloud, meaning the client uses just 15MB of your storage space. That’s the same as a single photograph.

Why do virus scans take so long?

Why do virus scans take so long?

 

When a scan starts many antiviruses have to download all the latest threat definitions first, and then use your PC’s processing power to run the comparison. Being cloud-based means our solution always has the latest definitions and no download is needed. It also runs the majority of its tasks in the cloud, keeping your computer power free for you to use. The effect is that it scans up to 60 times faster than rivals.

Anti-Spam

Spam email contains two types of threat; threat to your cybersecurity and threat to your productivity.

The cybersecurity threat comes in the form of phishing emails. These emails seek to obtain valuable information such as personal data or bank details through deception. This could be by mimicking your bank, a personal plea from a friends’ hacked email account, or a scam like the famous Nigerian Prince deception.

The productivity threat comes from an overwhelming amount of unneeded and unsolicited emails in your inbox. Even filling in an online form for a good reason can lead to a deluge of unwanted sales contact. Often our email addresses are traded amongst online spammers. Whatever the reason, unwanted email can stop us seeing the emails we need to see, such as customer contact.

How Anti-Spam helps your business.

How Anti-Spam helps your business.

Antispam scans and interprets the content of your inbound emails to determine if it’s an email you need to see. Lists of known spam email and IP addresses are kept constantly up to date and are used to reject emails at source. The content of the email and its attachments are scanned for spam-related words and phrases with suspicious emails being quarantined.

Where the sender’s intention is unclear, such as an unsolicited sales email, the email is quarantined and you are notified. You can review the email safely without any risk of contamination. If it’s an email you recognise and trust, you can release it to your inbox. If it’s something you don’t want you can block the email, the sender of the entire domain.
