We receive calls asking how do I protect my computer all the time.

With computers becoming a primary focus, the need to maintain and protect your computers and having the right Cyber Security in place goes without saying.

Have you ever asked yourself if you need the protection you see online?

Well, that depends, if you consider your data important then you should always have something in place.

Regardless of what Operating System you use, some form of Protection is necessary.

What Protection do I need and how do I Protect my Computer?

Our potential clients and existing clients often ask us how do I protect my computer and what protection they require and for very good reason.

The Internet is full of misinformation and overpriced software that is often unnecessary and often bloated, this will cause more harm than good.

Protection can come in many forms from Malware to Virus Protection and I am sure that you have heard the buzzword Cyber Security.

This is all about having adequate protection and should the worst happen a form of Disaster Recovery.

Protection should not only refer to the security aspects but also to the stability of the computer as well. Listed below are various ways you can be protected:

Regular Maintenance

Maintaining the performance of the machine is quite a popular Ticket created by our clients.

Nobody wants to be slowed down or prevented from carrying out their work.

With a Maintenance Plan, an automated schedule can be set to carry out routine clean-up of a machine.

Specific scripts can be run targeting important areas such as the removal of leftover update files or junk data created by install files.

Software Updates

You may be surprised how often updates are forgotten about,

we are not just referring to Windows or Apple Operating System updates.

Third-party software often releases critical updates to fix security leaks and major bugs.

Not installing these can often result in security breaches such as Ransomware, private data leaking onto the Internet, or allowing hackers to gain access to your systems.

Please do not ignore any updates.

However, we should still be wary about installing patches on day one.

Just like updates are made to fix updates, they can, unfortunately, introduce new bugs so an IT Specialist should always check them over first for you.

Security Protection

Protecting your computer with Cyber Security Software is still important today,

Windows has made a great improvement with their Windows Defender, and even Apple with Gatekeeper is a very important tool for their respective Operating Systems.

However, in any sort of business environment, or if you value the importance of your files then having security is very important.

Choosing the right protection is also important as FREE software will not value your data in the same way as a paid-for.

 There are many tools that claim to maintain and protect your computers,

but often once ran show lots of necessary tick boxes for what you need to fix.

In reality, they are trying to extract payment of some kind for unnecessary software additions.

With security, we have to consider Adware, Malware, Viruses, Web Hijacks, and plenty of other malicious software and scripts.

Picking software that can combat a large selection can be daunting for most people.
