Spyware, Adware, and Malware have become more of a significant problem for the business community than viruses are presently. This includes Phishing, Pharming, Pop-ups, Data collection, Spam, Id Theft, Trojans, and other annoying, security risking, and performance slowing effects. We have strategies to both minimize the perfomance hits, and keep the environment safe and operational. Some of these are software based and others are hardware appliance filters. Spyware can also corrupt the computer's system registry, causing early failure in the day to day operations of your workstations. Spyware infections can cost time, employee salaries, lowering morale due to frustration with the unresponsiveness of computer, and productivity loss.
