Do you really need an Antivirus?

Like the role seat-belts have in your vehicle, antivirus is one part of security. Can a seat-belt be the difference between life and death in the even of an accident? Absolutely, but not always. Similarly, an antivirus will not always stop an attack or infection, but it is the last line of defense. Each network will implement different security measures, but they generally include the following components:

  • Secure authentication and access (Password, FOB, etc)
  • Periodic password changes
  • Hardware based firewall (SonicWall)
  • Regular updates to Windows and programs
  • Antivirus program
  • Site and Spam filters (blocks known infected sites and email spammers)
