Virus Protection

What are the costs, both real and hidden, of your systems getting infected by a serious computer virus? Cnet news.com (March 19, 2004) reports that 30% of 300 worldwide businesses polled suffered a virus "disaster, in 2003 compared to 26% in 2002. The cost to recover from these disasters increased by 23%"

At inBlue Technologies, we consistently see that it is much more cost effective to protect your systems from viruses rather than recover from a virus infection. We have implemented virus solutions on dozens of networks so we know how to protect your systems.

To keep you informed about current viruses, we keep this section of our web site constantly updated with information on the latest virus threats. Bookmark this page and tell your associates about this site so you can keep informed of the latest outbreaks.

Maybe it is not a real virus…

Virus Hoaxes can often be just as dangerous as actual viruses. A hoax is a scare tactic sent in an E-mail that warns of something that is NOT a virus at all. For example, a virus hoax might ‘warn’ readers that if they find a specific file on their computer they are infected. They often also warn that antivirus software cannot detect this horrible virus and then instruct the reader to delete the file. The hoax is that the file being deleted is not a virus but an important system file for your computer and deleting it breaks your computer. If you ever receive an E-mail with such a ‘scare’ warning, check here before taking any action. Checking here may save you a big headache and expensive repair bills.
