Antivirus forms a core part of any security strategy. It helps to identify and protect against viruses, spyware, ransomware, and all other types of malware.
Strong antivirus also blocks unsafe links, downloads, and email attachments, and scans your PC for performance problems.
All in all, it works to ensure the safest day-to-day running of your software and machine against a cyber security attack.
A crucial aspect of ensuring cyber security, a secure firewall constantly monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic from your computer. Firewalls either permit or block data packets based on a set of security rules.
The purpose of this is to establish a barrier between your internal network and any external sources (which could be cyber threats from the internet), making sure any dangerous traffic is blocked, traffic that may contain viruses or have been created by hackers looking to damage your system.
By using multiple firewalls provided by different vendors, we are able to create an intelligent form of cyber security that has additional layers of protection, making it far more difficult for criminals to violate your defences and access your systems.
