Experts Estimate 270 Million Computers Have Outdated Anti Virus Software

Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) July 03, 2013

Millions of computer users are using out of date antivirus software according to the latest volume of the Microsoft Security Intelligence Report released on April 17th, 2013. It is no secret that having an up to date anti-virus software is recommended by security experts, but do users really need the most updated version to be protected? With the sheer number of new malware applications, computer viruses and the ever growing threats online, it would seem obvious that users would want to have the highest level of cyber security, but an overwhelming number of PC users are not using the most current antivirus software applications.

Microsoft's Security report indicates that there are nearly 270 million users worldwide who are using an outdated anti-virus on their home or office computer. The report also shows that the chances of getting a computer virus or malicious malware is 5 times higher for users who are not being proactive and taking the necessary precautions. Everyone knows that a computer needs AV software but why would so many people neglect to protect their computers?

People today live in a digital world where things are always becoming more automated and people often assume that once software is installed on the users machine that is all they ever need to do and the rest will happen by itself, unfortunately this is not the case, says Ilias Melikov a spokesperson for the security software PCKeeper.

It is a common misconception that blocking all malware or computer viruses is virtually impossible and with that mindset many users undervalue the need for the most recent AV software. The speed that technology changes in todays world means that the most basic protection can become obsolete in a few days, weeks or months. In the same way that the bad guys are always changing how malware and viruses are delivered, Anti Virus companies are investing millions of dollars in the technology to stay a step ahead of them in detecting threats and vulnerabilities.

Threats are always changing and we must change with them and part of that change means having the most current version of whatever anti-virus application you are using. We update our virus database as often as several times a day and this is a contributing factor of why PCKeeper has performed so well and has some of the best detection rates among the top security software vendors, says Mr. Melikov.

In fact, according to the independent security testing agency AV Comparatives, the PCKeeper AntiVirus proved to be 99.4% effective in identifying potential threats. No antivirus tested scored a perfect 100% detection rate but cyber security experts recommend users have an anti-virus software of at least a 95% detection and above to be safe.

NesterSoft Experts say: Millions Wasted, Security Breaches Exist for Years Due to Lack of Proper Employee Monitoring

(PRWEB) January 23, 2013

The Story in Recent News: How Bob Outsmarted Himself.

In recent news there was a story about a very successful software developer named Bob who was the star employee at his company, yet he still managed to lose his job because he outsmarted himself.

Bob was his companys best software developer, received glowing performance reviews and earned more than $ 250,000 a year. One day Bobs employer decided the IT security department should start monitoring their VPN logs. What they discovered that the code produced by Bobs had in fact been the handiwork of a Chinese subcontractor using Bobs credentials. For years Bob had been paying Chinese subcontractors to perform his job while he spent his days surfing the web.

NesterSoft experts respond to this news:
-In large organizations individual employee investigations are not feasible.

-Computer monitoring software is a simple, inexpensive and effective way for a company to protect itself against many employee security risks.

-Aside from the benefits of enhanced security computer monitoring software is an excellent way for a company to save money.

-A Fact of Big Corporations: at least 75 of out of every 1,000 salaries are a complete waste of money.

NesterSoft Experts Say How to Prevent The Story of Bob
Every day the same thing happens in countless companies. There are many real cases where security breaches have existed for many years. Companies spend large amounts of resources to discover, investigate and protect against these breaches in security. Unfortunately the actions taken to secure the company are very often ineffective.

There are plenty of software solutions on the market today (WorkTime, for example) that offer automatic computer monitoring of employee activities. Such software is a simple, inexpensive and effective way for a company to protect itself against employee security risks, such as (but not limited to) detecting any abnormal Internet and overtime activity.

These monitoring services are automated and would have uncovered Bobs actions from the very beginning, allowing management to take appropriate actions to mitigate all risks. And these automated reports do not require any sort of physical investigation. These, and many other features offered by monitoring software make it a necessary part of a security package for any company. This is especially true for large organizations where individual employee investigations are simply not feasible.

Fact: Salaries Wasted
Aside from the benefits of enhanced security, computer monitoring software is an excellent way for a company to save money. For example (based on NesterSoft statistics): 20 salaries out of every 1,000 are wasted on zero productivity as this is how much time 1,000 employees spend on Facebook in a given year.

Other sources which account for wasted salaries are (per 1000 employees):

News sites: 30 salaries wasted per year
YouTube, eBay, Craigslist, job search sites: 15 salaries wasted
Spider, FreeCell and Solitaire (just these 3 programs!): 10 salaries wasted.

Now let's calculate: if one salary is at least $ 50,000 then the total waste of money is $ 3,750,000.

Managers Take Action
Are you as a manager aware of all the processes going on in your company?

More than 120 U.S. independent security alarm dealers, manufacturers, and telecom professionals will gather at the first of many summits to discuss the impact of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology on alarm signals and security monitoring.

The VoIP summit organized and hosted by AlarmWATCH, Inc., a leading UL-certified central monitoring station, will take place on Thursday, June 7, 2012, (noon to 3:00 pm) at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Hunt Valley, Maryland.

Mr. Guy Kline of AlarmWATCH, Inc. will moderate the summit with a distinguished panel of industry experts: Larry Byers of DSC Tyco Products, Steve Farkas of Interlogix UTC, Jim Filer of Honeywell, Dave Mann of Certified System Design, and Brad Nye of Engage Communications and Protection Plus.

VoIP is rapidly replacing traditional phone services in ways that we may not be aware of, said Guy Kline, V.P. of Sales and Marketing for AlarmWATCH, Inc. We need to understand the pitfalls, especially when it comes to the security industry and protecting our customers. It is no longer clear or guaranteed which calls are carried by traditional phone networks and which calls are VoIP; this could threaten the delivery of alarm signals to the central station.
