Antivirus Solutions

Antivirus protection software detects and deflects malware that can infiltrate a company’s electronic systems to steal, misuse or corrupt data. It is compatible with various devices, including laptops, desktops and mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets and even connected home gadgets such a smart TVs and printers.

Modern antivirus solutions typically employ multiple detection methods to avoid the spread of a single infection. One method that is commonly used is the signature-based detection. This involves analyzing files for matches and keeping an inventory of distinct code snippets known as malware signatures. However, if attackers modify existing malware to be unable to be detected by these signatures, it’s considered polymorphic, and requires more advanced detection techniques.

Heuristic-based detection is a more advanced method. It attempts to detect malware by recognizing patterns unique to malicious code. For instance, changing and deleting large quantities of data, altering settings for other programs, or connecting remotely to computers. The use of algorithms for detection can cause security alert fatigue and should be carefully crafted to avoid false positives.

Choose a strong virus protection program that can handle ransomware, polymorphic malware, memory attacks and other advanced threats. It should be easy to install on a wide range of devices including Macs and Windows PCs. It should also run on various operating systems. It shouldn’t use excessive system resources, as this can cause a device to slow down, or even crash.
