Cyber Security: From Malware to Ransomware

What Bay Area business isn’t threatened by malware, ransomware and cyber crime?


Smaller companies are not immune to cyber-attacks, but they don’t have the deep pockets to recover from the brand and liability damage. 

According to Verizon’s 2019 Data Breach Investigations Report, 43% of data breaches affect small businesses. Many of these attacks, hacking, social engineering, phishing and malware, destroy your data, but others are set up to quietly spy on your systems, especially sensitive data. Still others will lock up your vital information and hold it for ransom. 

We know it can be difficult for small businesses to identify the proper resources and personnel to ensure complete security. Proactive detection and removal is the key.  Kirk Lesser and the Renascence IT experts work to detect trouble, manage risks and safeguard your data.

While you focus on running your business, our managed malware and virus removal and prevention tools will keep your data and operations secure.

How we prevent malware and cyber attacks

The easiest way to deal with malware and viruses is to proactively prevent them from ever impacting your business and its data. This requires more work than just installing a consumer grade anti-virus detection program. 

Additionally, if you are relying on software installed across employee devices, you are relying on your employees to update the program regularly, run scans, and deal with anything the system may find.  One ignored update, missed scan, or inaction in the face of a detected threat, and your entire company could be at risk.

Our remote malware and virus prevention tools combine the anti-virus scanning with machine adaptive techniques that don’t rely on outdated signatures, allowing brand new attacks through your network. We can even quarantine suspected viruses or malware into an environment outside of your network to see what happens when they are enabled, keeping your system separate and mitigating any risk.

What is malware and virus removal?

In an ideal world, malware and virus prevention is proactive and effective enough that removal is not necessary. However, it is always good to have a plan in place for those times when the worst-case scenario happens. Whether you are coming to us for malware and virus removal before getting a proactive plan in place, or malware and viruses otherwise slipped through, our skilled IT team will clean up the problem right away.

You may be familiar with consumer-grade anti-virus and anti-malware programs that say they can remove issues. Many are not actually advanced enough to detect everywhere malware and viruses have gone, given how complex modern cyberattacks are.

Our company is staffed by IT experts with years of experience, updated training, and dedication to helping companies like yours succeed. We know how to remediate even the trickiest, stickiest cyberattack to clean your systems thoroughly.

One of the biggest benefits of our professional malware and virus removal and prevention is remote 24/7 access. You do not have to worry about bringing a tech to your business, or to deploy to a remote worker’s home.

This is particularly beneficial for companies with many locations and/or many remote workers, where traveling to deal with each infected device is impractical and expensive.

If you are not already taking advantage of our proactive malware and virus prevention, this is the ideal time to audit for vulnerabilities and protect against future attacks.
