Lock up your data

In the early days, your Antivirus software would download a catalog of viruses and bugs and then carefully scan each file on your computer looking for patterns that matched any entry in the catalog. It could take hours. And if it found a match, it would lock up the matched file and tell you about it. That was about all it could do.

For some Antivirus products, that’s still all they can do.

Unfortunately, hackers are always improvising. The latest threat is polymorphic malware. “Polymorphic” means, “Occurring in different forms.” Much like a jigsaw puzzle, each malware package is a bit different from the rest so that a pure catalog match won’t work. By some counts, 94% of all malware is now polymorphic.

An Antivirus Solution That Handles Modern Threats

Webroot Certified Partner

That’s why Atlas chose SecureAnywhere by Webroot as its preferred antivirus package for our clients. Webroot partners a small agent on the computer with a cloud based analytic engine. The agent looks for known “bad behaviour” and stops it when it finds it. It also regularly scans for very common malware instances. But if the agent notices something that is suspicious but the agent can’t define it as a threat, it uploads the suspect file to its Global Intelligence Network. The network analyzes the file’s behaviour and compares it to other recent threats.

If it is a threat, Webroot rolls back all the actions that the suspicious file performed and restores your system to its pre-exposure condition. PC Magazine tied it for top choice in its annual antivirus review.

Not only do you know that your system has been protected, but Atlas is also informed of the attack and can help you clean it up–if necessary.

And all for $36/year/computer, probably close to what you’re paying today for your existing antivirus software. (You do have antivirus software on your computers, don’t you?)

    When the Gaming Gets Real

    Being a business services company, Atlas doesn't serve a lot of gamers. But sometimes a working parent wants to protect all the computers in their home, not just theirs. Sometimes those computers belong to gamers. And some gamers want to load software that gets around...

    What Makes a Good “Antivirus”?

    Viruses and malware is a real and present danger for computers. While most malware is written for Microsoft Windows, Macintoshes are not immune from infections. Typically, computers come with some sort of anti-virus software: Windows Defender (for Windows) or XProtect...
