Benefits Of Managed Anti-Virus

Managed Anti-Virus for Business

There are still many businesses that use the old school ways of deploying Antivirus with an outdated method of installing individual copies of the antivirus software on each of the devices or machines on the companies office network, this would mean that any updates would be down to the responsibility of each individual user and the frequency of doing this could boil down to the employees work schedule and also to that users own due diligence in completing that task in a timely manner. This old school method of requiring each employees input to safe guard their own machine is not very efficient and all it takes is for one employee not to have carried out an update to put a whole companies network in a possible vulnerability breach for everyone within the organisation.  This DIY option of antivirus software of yester-year is not your only option as a business owner, with Managed Anti-virus software, it lifts the responsibility from your employees for reliable and consistent protection from viruses and malware.

What is Managed Antivirus

Managed antivirus is a centralised software solution option that protects all computers on your office network from known threats.  With new threats created on a daily basis, businesses can protect themselves by using a proactive method to help against any viruses or malware.  Any threats that are found on any network devices are always quarantined without any input from your employees and all your devices have the most up to date protection.  The “Managed” bit means that your IT service provider deploys this on all devices, runs updates and schedules in automatic scans according to your staffs work schedule.  Al this is done from your IT Service providers dashboard back at their offices, most importantly this means you and your staff can concentrate on what you do best and that is work on your business while all the security gets done behind the scenes without your having to worry from any input from you.
