Companies Need to Protect Their Computers

Aug 17, 2007
Spyware isn't just a problem for home pc users, it's a worldwide problem in every country. If you are on the Internet, you have potential exposure to malicious programs that, if they make their way into your system will cost you. Home users and businesses that use the Internet for any purpose need to be aware of the potential damage that Spyware or Adware can do.

These problems cost companies in the form of
-Downtime due to slowed resources
-User problems
-Loss of productivity
-Support or IT personnel time wasted
-Waste of bandwidth
And more.

If a company's website is down due to a malicious attack, the chances of your users waiting until your systems are back up is small. People are accustomed to getting what they want online in real time. Waiting is generally not an option and surfers are impatient and demanding. If Google is down, potential customers or even repeat customers won't wait for Google to come back up to search, they go to MSN or Yahoo for information. If they can't get onto Amazon.com to buy a book they will look for another online bookstore. As a business you can't afford the loss of productivity, it could cost you reputation and dollars and cents. If your site is down repeatedly, you'll quickly lose your reputation that you've fought hard to establish.

Spyware maliciously tries to infiltrate any system it can. It doesn't discriminate. If you are online, you are vulnerable. Installation of a spyware program is essential for every computer on the worldwide web, anywhere. Download a program to combat Spyware before it makes its way into your system and steals from you or renders your server useless. If you have employees on the web, you increase your risk of exposure. Employees don't have to be careless in order to bring a spyware program into your environment, it can happen easily and with the most cautious user. Spyware makes its way into your system through many methods including file sharing, downloaded e-mail attachments, Trojan horses and countless other ways. Spyware's damage payload can range from harmless pop-ups to complete system shutdowns.

Programs can remove the risk by eliminating the spyware you have and stopping future programs from getting in and causing havoc with your servers and your nodes. Save time up front by fending off the problem. In today's day and age, you wouldn't leave your server without a firewall or antivirus software. Spyware should be deemed just as much a threat and fought off accordingly.
