Better Threat Detection Starts With Our Managed Anti-Malware Services

Your business probably uses many different types of software on a day to day basis. Unfortunately, while software is a powerful tool, it can also present a serious danger to the machines running it. When a business workstation is connected to a network, a serious security breach can result from just one computer being compromised.

Malware, short for malicious software, is a term used to describe software that was built to break into a network or otherwise cause damage. Since computers are the fundamental tool that most businesses are built on, malware can present a severe threat to your business.

Types of Malware

The “industry” for creating malware, though illegal, is quite lucrative. Your business’s data can be worth a lot to competitors, and employee data can be used for identity theft. A single company data breach is usually worth the effort it takes to build the malware in the first place. 

Malware is a general term, and several different types of malware can cause your business harm. Here are a few of the most common types:

  • Spyware. Spyware is software that doesn’t actively interfere with the machines it’s operating on. Instead, it attempts to log sensitive data on the computer and send it to a remote location automatically. 
  • Keylogger. A keylogger is a particular type of spyware that doesn’t search the computer’s memory at all, which makes it quite difficult to detect. The keylogger logs all of the keystrokes that a user inputs into the computer, which allows it to steal your employees’ user credentials.
  • Ransomware. Ransomware is a relatively recent innovation in malware. It locks the machine it infects and threatens to delete the user’s files unless a ransom, usually paid in cryptocurrency, is sent to an unknown address.
  • Adware. Adware won’t necessarily cost your company a data breach and isn’t intrinsically dangerous. Instead, it displays ads to users, usually in an obtrusive way that interferes with workflow.
