How To Use SafeBytes Against
If you own a computer, the possibility of being attacked by cyber criminals should always
be at the back of your mind. The one thing that makes cyber-attacks complicated is that
as the authorities and manufacturers of anti-virus solutions get more sophisticated, so do
the criminals. For this reason, the threats that you actually think you face are not the
ones that would usually attack you as they are always changing in response to the
safeguards you put in place. This is the reason why we would recommend that you look at
how to use SafeBytes against attacks.
The Most Common Threats
Before looking at how to use SafeBytes against attacks, we may need to look at some of
the most common attacks that you should know about. One of them is the socially
The complicated thing about socially engineered Trojans is that they are usually hidden in
legitimate websites, which have no idea that they have been taken over. The other
common source of attacks comes from what is known as unpatched software. In this
instance, the attack comes via a trusted program such as Adobe Reader.
Then, there are other attacks such as phishing. Did you know that almost three-quarters
of emails moving around is spam?
What makes most phishing emails so scary is that they are done to look as legitimate as
possible. Days of phishing emails with spelling errors and poorly done logos are well
behind us now.
How SafeBytes Uses TotalSystemCare to Neutralize These Attacks
There is good news. Designers of software systems such as SafeBytes have come up with
sophisticated solutions to the challenge of cyber-attacks.
Helps Your Antivirus
TotalSystemCare works together with your antivirus. The advantage of this system is that
it will run a scan of your PC at regular intervals to ensure that there are no dangerous
tracking cookies collecting information on your activities. This collected information is
what makes an attack on your system possible.
You know how they say knowledge is power? This software has a way of identifying if
there are any loopholes in your system that hackers can use to gain access to it. Once
these have been identified, they are neutralized before they cause any problems.
You will just need to remember to download the full version; using the free version
presents a number of limitations.
Educate the Users
While solutions such as TotalSystemCare can do a great job helping you to take care of
threats, you will help yourself by ensuring that anyone using your network has the right
knowledge when it comes to these attacks. You can also decrease the risk posed by
phishing through more effective end-user education.
The thing we love about deploying a software system such as TotalSystemCare is that it
deals with all your PC issues in a holistic manner. It ensures that if an attack did take
place, your data is actually backed up so that when the problem is resolved, it can be
restored to the state it was in before the attack happened.
