Anti-virus programs don’t catch viruses when they’re not running. Yes, it’s blatantly obvious, but what’s not always clear is how often you may be disabling your anti-virus program, or turning it off portions of the program. Maybe download and install a game, free app or get through the block to a suspicious website. It happens in homes and businesses across the country, and more often than you think. It’s just human nature to see a problem and work around it, because surely their computer won’t be infected, those things only happen to other people. If only.

Unfortunately, the biggest threat to your data and network security is you. Fantastic, loyal, hardworking people, who make occasional silly decisions. Even the innocent ones, like ignoring the virus software update that keeps popping up, requesting to download the latest protections. You aren’t intentionally putting your systems at risk, but are creating a weak link that exposes your machine to attacks that may cost you thousands.


That’s the key difference between free anti-virus and managed anti-virus. Free solutions were created for home use, where self-induced breaches aren’t such a big deal. The license on free solutions is usually in fact only for home usage. This is because in a business setting, even the slightest gap in your digital walls can lead to lost revenue, delays and even lawsuits. With a managed anti-virus solution, your staff can’t do those things. They literally can’t disable the protections or uninstall it, and updates happen automatically.


With the benefit of human oversight, we’re able to see when machines aren’t fully protected or have already become infected. Managed anti-virus means just that – we manage it for you – so that we know when there’s an issue and can take the necessary actions. Often working invisibly to you and any employees or members of your families, we can remotely fix small problems before they become big problems, which leaves you and your machines, irrespective of being either residential or business use remaining secure.


Managed anti-virus gives your machines protection on a much higher level, because let’s face it, the stakes are much bigger. It takes software control out of the end users hands and puts your system security in the hands of an expert. The program can’t be disabled without a password, nor can it be uninstalled by anyone without the highest permissions. When updates are released they are downloaded and applied automatically. No delays, no putting it off until later, no gaps in your digital walls.


When to switch: This is around the size where it becomes impossible to monitor each computer individually without a full-time IT technician on your team. Our Managed Anti Virus can be installed on a single machine, through to entire networks. Users may be spread out across the network and you’re way too busy to stand watch over them while they work.




For a very small fee per computer each month, all the costly stress and drama of defending your business network against the latest attack simply goes away. It’s all managed centrally by a company such as ours, so you can get on with doing what you do best – running a profitable business.
