Virus and Spyware Protection and Removal

This is one of the most complex problems facing enterprise computing today. Viruses and Spyware can quickly make a computer or even an entire network unusable.

We’ve worked with all types of programs for managing viruses and spyware. We are happy to work with your in-place virus and spyware systems and make sure it works as the manufacturer recommends.

In-place programs may be running on a firewall, on server based solutions, on workstations or all the above. It is fairly straight foreword process to identify what component is supposed to do what, and from there to see where problems may be occurring.

We also offer a very effective and straight foreword combination of techniques to reduce the occurrences and treat viruses and spyware.

We typically schedule these tools so that they do not perform full system scans during regular business hours.
  • For most office networks we use Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP) to combat viruses from files, the web and many kinds of spyware. SEP can be configured to prohibit some or all users from accessing some web sties which are known common locations for viruses and spyware and it also can be configured to prohibit unknown programs from running.
  • We perform an annual or semi-annual entire-office house cleaning and scans for known viruses and spyware using a combination of up to 7 programs specifically designed to look for and resolve a large variety of intrusions. The house cleaning gets rid of possible sources where malware may reside, and cleans out a variety of old temp and log files. The scans look for and remove 10s of thousands of possible viruses and spyware.
