Viruses will eventually threaten all Internet users, and for many these threats will be frequent and severe. By clicking on a link on an unknown website, playing a video sent by a friend via email, or downloading a game, a user can invite a virus into their computer system. Businesses who fall victim to a computer virus will see a dramatic decrease in productivity due to company downtime, and will experience a decline in customer confidence following a network security breach.
Some viruses are little more than a nuisance, but others are complex codes designed to destroy the contents of your hard drive after transmitting your important information and financial data to the virus's programmer. Without the best anti-virus protection to shield you from these viruses, you open yourself, your company, and your customers to identity theft and thousands of dollars in damage and replacement costs.
The best anti-virus protection does not wait until a virus has revealed itself, but instead proactively searches it out and destroys it. Kaspersky offers a sophisticated anti-virus solution that can penetrate layers of encryption coded into viruses and destroy the threat to your system before critical damage is caused.
