Antivirus

Although Global Net provides firewalls and as many security features as we can to you our customers, we recommend protecting your computer(s) with Anti-Virus software.

A computer virus is a mini program designed to replicate and spread, generally without the user’s knowledge.  Viruses spread by attaching themselves to other programs or files on a hard drive.  When an infected file is activated or executed, or when a computer is booted up, the virus itself is also executed or activated.  Generally, viruses penetrate a network via an email attachment, but they also may enter a network through a download, or less frequently, via general web browsing.  Anti-virus software programs perform three functions:  detecting, identifying, and removing.

Global Net helps to keep you safe by not allowing peer-to-peer file sharing on our network and by employing firewalls and SonicWalls to prevent dangerous sites from opening up.  However, the risk of infection still exists and taking the necessary precautions of defending your computer(s) will help alleviate the spread and defend your system from viruses. It is vital to the health and well being of your computer and to your personal information to guard your system from the hazards and harm of viruses.
