To protect from malware attacks, small businesses need to ensure all their PCs and servers have a comprehensive, up-to-date cyber-security program.
Firewalls will scan all inbound and outbound communications to ensure information being sent through them complies with security specifications. All systems should have a software firewall running at all times.
