Writing this post today 20th November, I calculate there are just 25 working days until the end of the year. It’s quite staggering how quickly time passes. How those lovely warm summer days have fast faded into the memory as the cold, damp, dark days of winter approach. So have you achieved all you wanted to in 2017? Can we help you with any outstanding threat protection, data compliance or mobile device management issues? Always happy to chat and provide an alternative quote with no obligation.
Back in 2002 when businesses would traditionally purchase a suite of anti-virus signature detection based solutions from one vendor, Helen Hall started a business in the basement of her home, with the objective of offering her customers a diverse range of security solutions to better match their specific company requirements. Anti Virus Reseller Ltd was born on 22nd October 2002 and now in 2017, we are proudly celebrating AVR’s 15th birthday!
Almost half of UK businesses were hit by a cyber attack in 2016. Seven out of ten large firms identified a breach and those businesses holding electronic data were twice as likely to be attacked (UK Government Cyber Breaches Survey 2017). All of those attacked will have anti-virus and firewalls in place, but today’s advanced malware can breach those defences. Next Generation Endpoint Protection will stop every type of attack at every stage in the threat life-cycle. So what’s stopping you giving your business this vital security?
How would businesses and organisations run without email? In truth they would struggle or grind to a halt. Email is without doubt the most widely used business communications tool and we use it instinctively. However it has become one of the most effective routes for cyber attacks to penetrate a network or a sensitive data leak to cause a breach. Securing the email gateway is a vital requirement. Today. businesses must be able to manage the flow of sensitive information and appropriately secure it to protect the value and reputation of their brands. They must also comply with current and forthcoming data protection regulations, while enabling the business to be productive at the same time. So a solution that could automatically protect critical data, remove only the content that breaks company policies and sends the rest of the email onward would be ideal, right? We have the answer!
Antivirus software has been protecting computer systems since the 1980’s and has helped to keep millions of businesses operating effectively. Nothing lasts for ever so the saying goes and over the past few years the view that antivirus is dead has been widely promoted. The main cause for these pronouncements has been the rise of new or next generation malware, including the infamous Ransomware, which evades detection by traditional antivirus.
The dramatic growth in cyber attacks and the increasing threat to businesses and organisations is prompting the development of new IT security solutions that can protect more than traditional anti-virus and firewalls can. AVR believes that SentinelOne’s unique range of features offers an ideal threat protection solution and is hosting an exclusive presentation on Thursday 15th November at Cliveden House to a select audience.
Ransomware is a pervasive threat, attacking ALL businesses and organisations, large and small, including hospitals, schools, state and local government, even law enforcement agencies – all targeted by insidious malware that encrypts or locks valuable digital files and demands a ransom to release them. Now SentinelOne offers unique, GUARANTEED ransomware protection.
