Digitisation and automation is essential in today’s modern business world, but to enjoy the benefits of making that transition, you need to be safe in the knowledge that your data and systems are protected against cybercrime.
Phishing attacks, ransomware, hacks and industrial espionage are just some of the threats that businesses have to protect themselves against on a daily basis.
Vanilla security software can help stave off the threat of an attack, but when handling sensitive data such as bank details and personal data, it is not enough.
The first safeguard any business should implement is Anti-Virus software. Windows has upped its game with its Windows 10 native security centre, but there is always room for improvement.
At Intercomp, we stock competitively priced plans for the Avira package which will protect your business against various forms of malware such as Trojans, ransomware and spyware.
We also stock Kaspersky, which has been on the market now for 22 years, providing a robust layer of extra security against all threats.
