Malware Risks During Covid-19

Our people are our biggest asset. And they’re helping YOU protect one of yours…data!

As the world changes, the threats to your IT infrastructure are evolving with it. Now that most people have shifted to a work-from-home norm, there’s a chance your data is more exposed then ever.

This is magnified by the fact that there is no longer central management of the A/V, which means that your IT team cannot see an infection until it spreads to the network. This risks all the data the user is accessing, and important data could be stolen by the malware.
