Managed Next-Generation Anti-Virus

Why Managed Anti-Virus is Better Anti-Virus
"Trust is good, control is better" - Vladimir Lenin

Many place too much trust in Anti-Virus (AV) software, trusting it will work without error once installed. However, like backup software or any software for that matter, failures happen.

Without control and regular monitoring, there is no way of knowing when your purchased AV software isn't working. Failure to notice a malfunction increases the risk (tenfold) of a major virus infecting the network, disastrous for any business.

Managed AV removes the stress, through a centralised AV management system that provides real-time alerts and advanced reporting on virus threats, re-ensuring your return on investment.

Why Multi-Vector Next Generation
What most don't realise is that not all anti-virus products are equal. There are large differences in level of protection between vendors. Next generation anti-virus from Tech Guard is different in that it does not rely on signature/definition updates and instead uses advanced behavioural analysis, unknown threat detection and integration with a global threat intelligence network. If an infection is found elsewhere, you are automatically protected in real time, with no waiting to get the latest signature updates. Multi-vector next generation anti-virus is employed by Tech Guard to provide anti-virus protection across multiple layers (email, web browser, display ads, files, hyperlinks, USB drive, social media apps, adware, spyware, phishing, ransomware, rootkits, key loggers, viruses, & more)
