Are You Really Protected?

Unfortunately we have noticed many of the clients we deal with have a false sense of security. Just because you have anti-virus software installed on your workstations does not mean that you are protected and aren’t already infected.

Clients are always shocked when we are engaged to perform an audit of their network and we find screen loggers, key loggers, root kits, and downloader trojans. Some clients have issues with infected systems causing their legitimate emails to be blocked as they end up getting blacklisted on the Internet.

Unfortunately not all antivirus software is complete or current. You need to upgrade your antivirus software to the latest and also ensure that it is also scanning for Malware and Spyware. Viruses are no longer the predominant threat.

Recommendations:
– Ensure that you have the latest Anti-“X” solution.
– Educate your users to not click on the “too good to be true” links
– Configure your firewall to only permit your mail server to send outbound emails
– Have your network audited on a regular basis
