IT Managers, Is Your Network Exposed?

Aug 17, 2007
Most successful companies today use the Internet to help them do business, to assist them in the growth of their business and are a big player in the growth of their bottom line profits. Providing the Internet on employee's desktops does a great thing for many companies and allows a lot of productivity. The Internet has become an elemental tool for today's business.

E-commerce is critical for many companies and downtime means lost business and lost profits. IT resources tend to be stretched thin, especially in growing companies. When something goes wrong, the IT group needs to fix it and needs to fix it immediately. Spyware has become a huge burden on IT managers.

For many companies, widespread Internet access through the user base poses the risk of continuous spyware infection. This can slow down productivity when employees use work time to surf or unknowingly download programs onto the company computer that can be harmful. Even if you only allow your employees to use their computer to surf during break or lunchtimes, you could be exposing your company to potential problems and downtime due to Spyware. Employees could even download potentially harmful programs right into your server and cause definite damage.

Spyware, Adware and malware are not just a home computer user's problem but also a problem for businesses everyday that suffer needless downtime due to these issues. Employees suddenly have problems at their pc where there's an inexplicable slowdown or programs they can no longer find or worse, pornographic advertisements on the employee's computer. The server can also be infected. IT staff spend countless hours troubleshooting users desktops and logging problems and draining their resources.

Anti-spyware programs are very important as part of your network infrastructure. Software programs can not only clean up Spyware problems but also prevent new threats from coming into your network. You need a program on your network that will be supported and will run with other programs as a complimenting software package. Using freeware or shareware programs in a network infrastructure is not a wise choice and can pose future problems for you that will be unsupported.

It's difficult to manage employees' computer time. Arming your company's network with software to combat this problem is preventative and smart and can minimize your exposure to potential problems, confidential company information leaks and unnecessary downtime. Spending a small amount of time by arming your system with software to combat this problem could save a huge amount of your valuable time and result in increased productivity for you and your company.
