What is Anti-Virus?
Anti-virus is the name given to software that detects and (where possible) removes viruses from messages. By removing viruses at the email server, all internal mail clients are protected AND all customers are protected from receiving viruses too.
Computer Viruses are written by people who wish to gain control of your system resources and are continually updated to try and break through any barriers you may have installed. GMS Anti-Virus overcomes this issue by providing a “signature file” update service which ensures that all new varients are caught as soon as possible.
Benefits of Antivirus
1) The key benefit to installing antivirus software is quite simply that it prevents a virus damaging your PC or network.
2) Protects your PC or network from viruses and other forms of malware.
3) Prevents downtime, i.e. valuable working time could be wasted if you can not access your PC due to a virus infection.
4) Protects valuable information on your PC.
5) Prevents other people outside of your organisation being able to access your information whether it is business or personal data.
6) Potentially prevents emails being sent by your system thereby damaging you and your organisation’s reputation.
7) Some viruses access your email folders and send an email to all of your contacts with the virus attached.
8) Prevents the time consuming and unnecessary task of having to clean or remove the virus after the damage has been done.
9) Reduces the potential financial implications – getting the technical support required to achieve removal of the virus and to restore your lost information.
10) Legal implications – in some instances it is required to demonstrate that your organisation has taken reasonable measures to protect the information you hold about your customers and the email you exchange with them.
