Virus protection

You must protect your valuable computer data from virus infection. With the constant release of newer and more dangerous virii, it is critical you protect yourself from a damaging virus infection.

TelNex LLC can help protect your office from virus protection through a multi-pronged approach:

  • Install and configure antivirus software on all workstations and servers: Properly configured antivirus software is your last line of defense from infection. It must be configured and installed correctly.
  • Install a Virus scanner gateway: A gateway scans files before they enter your network, blocking problem files before they reach your internal network.

Are you tired of system lockups, crashes, program problems? These problems are often solved by installing updates to the software installed on your computer. Software manufacturers release updates to their software to fix bugs, correct serious security risks and to add features to the program. While these updates are often free to download, keeping track of what to install and when to install can be a bewildering and time consuming process. In an office environment, with multiple workstations and a wide mix of different computers, the complexity of tracking this can be overwhelming. Instead of wasting your precious time trying to keep your computer up to date, let TelNex maintain your computer for you. This allows you to spend your time doing what you do best, doing your job.
