Managed Antivirus

Having a managed antivirus for your business is a smart move, especially since cyber-attacks are happening more often now with people working from home on unsecured networks or elsewhere. ‘Downtime’ is a word no one wants to hear, especially if it’s your business or you’re the person in charge of managing the company network. The costs and massive loss that comes with cyberattacks, spreading viruses and downtime is hard to bear when the responsibility lands on you.

You’ll be kicking yourself when you realise how much time and effort could have been saved with a Managed Antivirus.

Business data security with Managed Antivirus

Managed Antivirus Software

Sadly, many companies’ have become easy targets for virus attacks, cyber corruption, data breaches and the like by using outdated methods of protection. Installing antivirus software on each and individual devices is considered an ‘old school’ way of working. Not only is it time consuming and constricted, but it also involves relying on employees to keep their devices updated. With staff working from different locations and on different schedules, it’s never going to happen at once.

If one person from your organisation has an outdated version of antivirus software, the entire company becomes vulnerable to attacks. Giving employees the responsibility to maintain their own devices is not the most efficient way to keep your company data safe.

Managed Antivirus Software

It only takes one window to be left accidentally open for viruses and malware to creep in. That’s where having managed antivirus software comes in handy as it maintains all devices centrally and lifts the burden and responsibility from your employees.

What is Managed Antivirus?

Managed antivirus is an approach to protecting your business network where devices are connected, such as any PCs, laptops, tablet, mobile phones and even your servers! Providing the most up-to-date security against data breaches, ransomware attacks, virus threats, cyberattacks, and any other nasties that could affect business continuity. All of which are detected and remediated very quickly, often without you even knowing.

Having a managed antivirus means you have a security operations centre looking over all your devices, constantly monitoring your network with regular scans to check for any ‘physhiness’ that could be lurking around.

It’s often said that prevention is better than the cure, but why settle for just one when you can have both? Having a Managed Antivirus such as SaaS from DIS provides you with the software for the prevention and the service to immediately cure any infection.

With DIS you can have your cake and eat it too.

How does Centrally Managed Antivirus work?

The managed antivirus solution we supply works in two parts; First, conducting a detailed analysis of your network is key, which includes investigating any threats and monitoring all connected devices with award-winning antivirus software. Second, we provide a manual support team of network security specialists, that act immediately to alerts from your network, protecting your systems and notifying you when necessary.

Instead of having separate antivirus software installed on individual devices, you get the most up-to-date protection through a single network server.

Having your network security protected with a centrally managed antivirus enables your team to focus on other areas of the business. Reducing pressure on other departments and leaving us to take the load for you with the managed antivirus solution working across all devices.

Specialising in antivirus and ransomware cover, we supply endpoint protection with Security as a Service for businesses. Offering fortification and monitoring solutions to suit your budget, we can secure your business network for those working in the office and those working from home.
