Is Your Anti-Virus Up To Date? | Titania

Anti-virus software is used to detect, prevent and remove malicious software. Without anti-virus software protecting your systems, every email opened, web site visited, file opened or program run significantly adds to the risk of your system being infected.

Depending on the type of virus, consequences can include disruption of your systems, data loss or leakage and reputational damage as the virus sends spam or malicious content to your contacts. Some of the most destructive virus attacks have caused mass disruption in both the real and virtual worlds, leading to stolen financial data and personal information. Malware ‘Agent.btz’ famously forced the Pentagon to issue a blanket ban on thumb drives in 2008 and even led to the creation of an entirely new military department, US Cyber Command.

As software has evolved, so have the techniques used by the virus developers, so along with good browsing and downloading hygiene, it’s essential to have good anti-virus software installed, running and up to date.

To avoid the disruption of a virus, our free risk assessment tool will scan your computer for active and up-to-date anti-virus software, with attachment notification enabled. If you want to enhance your security further, you can download a FREE trial of Paws Studio. It works across laptops, workstations and servers on Windows, Mac and Linux, producing an easy to understand report to help you achieve compliance against industry standard security policies and best practice.
