Virus proliferation is a huge problem, but understanding the major types of viruses and implementing anti-virus solutions can help IT managers better protect their networks at multiple entry points and prioritize vulnerabilities. Computer users should also be educated about viruses and know how to react to a virus attack by following a comprehensive security policy.

Protecting the Enterprise
As viruses and other Internet threats continue to evolve, so do security solutions. Virus defense is just one aspect of a total content security solution; it can also includes mobile code protection and Internet and e-mail content filtering. The most efficient, best-of-breed security solutions are comprehensive and centrally-managed . An effective security strategy is one that recognizes an organization’s assets, identifies the risk to those assets, and considers the end-user culture.
E-mail content scanning and filtering helps protect proprietary information, reduces liability exposure, and improves productivity for e-mail applications. For example, content can be scanned for proprietary information or for inappropriate words and phrases to support a company’s e-mail policy. In addition, filtering can increase bandwidth by countering e-mail address forgery attacks.
For any organization connected to the Internet or relying on computer networks for business operations, IrisLogic SecurNet Virus Defense is an essential security solution for your company.
