Data Security Updates

Today’s businesses rely increasingly on high speed internet. Online shopping and other services
are fast, convenient, and usually reliable. As with all new technology, however, there have been
challenges. Business owners and their customers are now commonly the victims of spyware,
malware, hacking, and scams. Technology experts are always looking for new ways to keep the
internet safe.

Spyware Protection

Spyware protection is one of the most important safety features for any computer. Spyware
allows hackers and other unauthorized users to covertly transmit information from your hard
drive. In this way, they can access your credit card, banking, and personal information without
your knowledge. They often use this information to perpetrate identity theft and other crimes.
Many companies such as AVG and SpyBot offer free trials of spyware protection and reasonably
priced packages. These programs analyze the spyware’s “fingerprints” and prompt you to delete
suspicious programs or files.

Firewall Protection

Computers fall prey to viruses, worms, and hackers every day. Firewall protection can help
ensure your computer is not one of them. A firewall is an easy-to-install program or piece of
hardware that screens out hackers and viruses for you. Most computer systems are compatible
with one firewall type or another, and you can protect multiple computers with a hardware
firewall.

Cloud Protection

Cloud protection encompasses all the computers that a company, university, or other institution
uses to offer internet service. Clouds can safely store large amounts of data and protect them
from hackers, viruses, and malware. However, each cloud has different capabilities. If you’d like
to know more about different clouds or other types of protection, contact S-Net today.
