What Is Malware And How Can I Prevent It?
The internet has become an essential tool in successful business in recent years, with social media, web development, and search engine optimisation, all proving important aspects of the modern company. The web offers many great things; however, using it is not without its problems and malware is one of the most significant dangers.
Malware (short for malicious software) is software that has been developed with the intention to damage or disable computers. Appearing in the form of script, code, and other software, and taking many different forms (ransomware, Trojan horses, worms, keyloggers, rootkits, etc.), malware often comes disguised as genuine software or programs, duping the user into downloading the virus on to their system. This apparent legitimacy makes it almost impossible for everyday users to detect and the only way to protect against is with security software.
Cloud web Security is state-of-the-art security software that has been designed to protect systems from malware in all its forms. Using a powerful antimalware engine and antivirus protection, this security solution is able to protect systems from malicious content and prevent users from accessing suspect websites.
As long as there is an internet, there will be malware. Installing Cloud Web Security on your systems will ensure you do not become a victim of this crippling virus.
