Computer security not where it should be for businesses


According to recent research conducted by technology security provider GFI Software, 51 percent of IT professionals said they don't believe all computers used at their business are completely free of malware.

With many IT professionals failing to have the utmost confidence in their computer security, business owners may want to look into cyberliability insurance to address any issues the company could face from security attacks.

The survey found 78 percent of respondents would be willing to research web-based services that allow them to manage antivirus protection on company PCs.

"These businesses are looking for a service that is simple to use, that is delivered by a company with a track record in the security and network management field, that is inexpensive to implement and that doesn't expose sensitive data," said Walter Scott, CEO of GFI Software.

Through the use of a cloud-based security solutions, business owners can get back to focusing more on their operations and less on the security of their computers and business-critical files. Manually managing antivirus software can prove to be a time-consuming and ineffective process.
