AntiVirus & Firewall

The primary purpose of AntiVirus is to detect and remove malware. Standard features found on reputable platforms include:

  • Realtime scanning of systems
  • Automatic updating of the platform
  • Quarantine of harmful files
  • Report on findings

AntiVirus can offer a whole host of extra features, often as part of free packages and occasionally at extra cost.

Do your research and identify an AntiVirus that is best suited to your organisation’s needs and budget. You may find you meet many compliance standards with only one tool!
