Every Minnesota business owner remembers the recent Target Corporation’s customer data comprise. It cost Target millions of dollars and affected the company’s customer relations for some time. What may not seem obvious is that similar security breaches can happen to small and midsize companies. Today, a wide range of threats can cripple business operations and cost a large amount of time and money. As the leading IT support company in the Twin Cities, one of our most crucial responsibilities is helping our clients avoid attacks from hackers and from a wide range of malware and viruses.
Each day, any internet-connected computer is subject to probes from hackers who are looking for vulnerabilities by using automated software that seeks them out. In addition, constantly updated and new virus and malware software threats are constantly lurking on the internet, in email attachments, and even in such simple devices as USB flash memory drives. Our experienced technicians and engineers in the Twin Cities are constantly studying these threats and can successfully protect your network from attack. Even if a virus or malware program slips by, we can quickly remove it. At a very reasonable cost, we can provide enterprise-grade protection for your entire technology environment in the following ways and more:
Recent newspaper and TV news stories about computer ransomware Petya and WannaCry attacking all types of businesses and organizations have alerted people to this threat. By locking up systems and scrambling data through encryption, such attacks have crippled thousands of individual computers and business networks. Demands for ransom payments to restore those systems are a growing form of extortion. Our dedicated IT Services company in Minnesota wants you to understand how these attacks work, where the threats come from, and what you can do to prevent your systems from danger or to recover from such an attack.
Protection Against Hacking Attacks
Malicious hacker organizations are constantly looking for vulnerabilities in the computer and network server software most often used by businesses. Microsoft and Apple, for example, constantly provide security updates for operating systems, applications and server software. Keeping all software current and automatically updated is a powerful way to prevent such exploitation. Since all networks today are connected to the internet, careful attention must be paid to firewall configurations, wireless networks, and password security strategies, as well. You can rely on us to ensure that your system is bulletproof safe and updated frequently on an automated and manual basis. We make your system’s integrity and security a top priority.
Viruses and Malware Prevention
There are literally millions of different virus and malware programs in circulation. Some are designed to cripple your productivity. Others provide an entry for outside hackers. Still others seek to extract and transmit data or monitor your activity. Some malware can even hold your individual PCs or tablets for ransom. To protect you from these attacks, we install enterprise-level anti-virus and anti-malware software on individual PCs and your servers. Constantly updated automatically, this software actively guards against viral infection and blocks malware from being installed. In addition, your Microsoft Outlook and Exchange Server installation guards against attacks via email attachments, scripts and other methods. The cost of this protection is low, compared to the disastrous effects of a successful attack.
Virus and Malware Scanning and Removal
Despite the best efforts to prevent virus and malware infections, it’s still possible for your computers and network to become infected. Inadvertent introduction of malicious software by employees and vendors can occur. Malware and viruses can also be introduced from malicious websites and email attachments. We will configure the anti-virus and anti-malware software to scan for and remove infections automatically at frequent intervals. If, despite all protective measures, a virus or malware infection occurs, our technicians will remove the infection manually on an on-call basis. By trusting your protection to our certified technicians, your system will be protected up to the best industry standards available.
