Trend Antivirus Software

Antivirus or AV, is specially developed computer software used to identify, block and remove or destroy malicious software (malware) from a computer system.

As people and businesses have become more and more reliant upon computers and other internet connected devices, so the risk has grown and today, the threat from internet borne malware is greater than at any point in the past with no signs of abating anytime soon. Ransomware, trojans, worms, spyware, adware etc together, costs businesses billions of pounds every year and attacks are continuing to grow at an alarming rate.

Many people had never heard of ransomware until 2017, when appointments and operations were cancelled at hospitals all over the UK as a result of the Wannacry virus, which caused computers to be shut down at more than 80 NHS organisations in the UK.

Since the early days of Cryptolocker, which first reared its head in 2013, GoZeus, Wannacry, Petya and Notpetya have all had devastating impacts on businesses all over the globe.

Any person or business who uses the internet for downloading files, and opening emails is fair game for the criminals and most can be installed on a computer without the users even noticing, until it’s too late. This is why malwares are so effective, so dangerous.
