Why only Anti-virus just will not cut it in 2021.
Hello, Anti-spam protection!
Most businesses believe that the only cyber protection that they need for their business and employees is Anti-virus. We all know and are aware of Anti-virus and how it protects our computer and personal files from Malicious hackers trying to steal all the information that they can.
However, last year with more and more people working from home and moving to a home-based office, 247 IT services have seen a huge spike in Malicious emails.
These emails are easily mistaken as real for the majority of readers.
These malicious emails are very often deemed as being “Safe” by your antivirus, as your antivirus will not be able to scan malicious emails and links before they enter your computer.
Once the email has been received it only takes a miss click to open and run the software and your computer and email is already infected.
Therefore, we welcome Anti-spam protection to the party!!
Anti-spam is like your antivirus; however, the main benefit is that it can protect your computer from malicious programs and links before they enter your computer.
Where Anti-virus will deal with malicious software and viruses by scanning your computer and then removing them. Anti-spam will scan all incoming emails before they reach your computer’s inbox, if anything that is considered malicious or deemed to be infected will be redirected away from your inbox and stored in a quarantined location that can be checked by your IT support team.
Antispam will also remove and block emails from known email spammers which will further reduce your chance of being victim to any kind of scam or any attempts at a hacker trying to get your details through pretending to be your director/friend from Facebook.
