Is your computer performance uneven – sometimes fine, sometimes slow or frequent hanging and freezing? Are people in your address book responding to email messages you did not send? Are you having trouble printing or do you keep getting strange, threatening pop-up messages? Sounds like you may have picked up a virus or some malware out there on the Internet. Taking care of infections early is important to prevent file corruption and data loss.
Understanding the Threat
Spam, malicious email and virus attacks are becoming ever more sophisticated. Your corporate email is a gateway that can allow sensitive information to be destroyed or lost as well as for attacks that can hurt your network performance and employee productivity.
Threats do not always come from the outside. The firewall also checks for internally tainted email to prevent the spread of viruses that don’t access the email gateway.
