A Protection Checklist for Your Devices
Make sure you consider these technologies when you’re connecting to the Internet; hackers will use even the smallest hole in security to creep in and steal information!
Antivirus software: The tool is about prevention, and only the best providers should be considered. Look for software with automatic updates and fast responses.
Intruder and rootkit protection: Assume intruders are always trying to connect to your devices and collect personal data. Sometimes they use rootkits, which are assemblies of software enabling access while masking their existence. Make sure your security professional shields your network.
Firewall: A firewall is security for your network, and you may want to have it set up by an expert. With today’s threats, make sure you have your firewall activated even when you’re offline.
Software updates: Keeping software updated is a very effective measure against hacking. Turn on the automatic updates to your software, and be sure to download the newest operating systems.
Virtual Private Network (VPN): Make sure the VPN is activated to ensure privacy when accessing public networks. A VPN extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. Users can be on any network anywhere in the world, and all communications are auto-encrypted and invisible to anyone on the outside.
Unified Threat Management: This device protection software replaces the hardware approach benefiting the end-user and their everyday protection and security.
