Virus protection software is mandatory on all computers to prevent data disasters. With that said, all virus software are not created equal. We strongly recommend using a centrally managed anti-virus system for businesses with three or more PCs. There are several reasons that centrally managed software makes sense:
- Centrally managed software is easy to keep tabs on. We can look in one place and see the current status of all of your PCs. Plus if there is a virus infection we can fight it on all PCs simultaneously.
- We can establish rules that prevent anti-virus software from being disabled, either intentionally or inadvertently.
- The annual anti-virus subscription for each PC renews at the same time, preventing individual PCs from being without critical protection at any time.
- Centrally managed software is generally less expensive than purchasing individual copies of anti-virus software
TrendMicro, and AVG Anti-Virus, are our preferred anti-virus vendor, offers first class protection at a very reasonable price. Deep discounts are available for schools, government, and non-profit organizations.
