As more and more small and medium enterprises fall victim to targeted viruses and malware, businesses should be more vigilant in selecting protective programs that will shield you from data breaches, targeted attacks, and other damaging cyber malpractices. Like it or not, small and medium local businesses are seen as easy targets by hackers. As a matter of fact, more than 30 percent of targeted attacks in the past year focus on small businesses, resulting in damages that are hard and costly to fix. While it is easy to buy protection, for one computer at a time, as many individual consumers do, a small & medium enterprise package will save you a great deal of money, considering the number of systems that you need to protect.

There are numerous affordable anti-virus software packages built for small businesses to help you protect your servers, PCs, and mobile devices from data loss, network intrusions, malware, and theft. One of today’s leaders in the small business anti-virus industry is ESET, a company that develops potent antivirus and security software solutions that protect over 100 million users globally.

When shopping for small business antivirus software, always look for a product that has a proven track record of providing highly dependable malware detection and protection. Without this, a package’s long list of features is nothing but fluff as they hardly matter when malware attack. Beyond basic protection, you should also consider the program’s overall resource usage because a security solution can have good protection but may reduce your productivity when it slows down your system. Not only does this raise dangers of slowed productivity—it also puts your system at risk when users decide to disable protection out of their annoyance of the system and the way it slows down their machines.
