Support.com Launches New Cloud-Based Security for Desktops
With so many new types of IT system and Website attacks popping up all the time, new methods of fighting the nasty things off are necessarily coming to the fore. This includes cloud-based security services.
Support.com, a Redwood City, Calif.-based provider of cloud-based technology services and software, has released a new cloud-based service, SUPERAntiSpyware (SAS) for Business. It features a central management console for deploying and managing Support.com's client software on enterprise desktops.
Believe it: There are still plenty of enterprise desktop computers in operation that need to be protected. The 2013 business culture is indeed moving to more mobile computing devices, but older and still extremely valuable desktops will be in operation for many years to come. This holds true in virtually all regulated businesses, such as financial services, scientific research, government, military, education and many others.
The central management console included in SAS for Business provides a number of benefits for businesses:
--Enables IT administrators to control scan schedules and configuration policies corporate-wide and for individual desktops.
--Delivers automated alerts when specific threats and malware are detected and includes customizable settings for email notifications and desktop health reports.
--Supports automated responses to specific threats to help protect organizations from repeated attacks and chronic end point re-infection.
--Automates SAS client updates, helping IT manage costs by reducing the time spent on software updates and drives compliance with security policies by keeping end points up-to-date.
