The benefits of managed anti-virus software

According to Interpol and the FBI, cybercrime has increased over 400% since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic.1 No business, large or small, is immune from cyberattack. Anti-virus software is a small but important weapon in the arsenal of cybersecurity. Modern Networks provides enterprise anti-virus as part of our package of IT managed services. But what are the benefits of having anti-virus software managed by someone else?

Good cybersecurity is like a medieval fortress. Instead of having a moat, massive walls, guard towers, sentries and a keep, you have security policies, access controls, firewalls, anti-virus and data encryption. Of course, most firms want to spend their valuable time focused on core business activities rather than repelling cyberattacks. Using an experienced IT services provider like Modern Networks means you can concentrate on the important stuff while we keep the bad guys at bay.
