MAC OS X Keylogger Software More Popular Than You Think
Isn’t it funny that most people rarely think about anything other than Windows operating systems? There are so many other versions out there, but it can be almost impossible to find products for others. At Comodo, we understand your frustrations. Just because you don’t want to use the same OS as everyone else, you feel blackballed. The other side of the coin is that just because there aren’t many products to protect you against a keylogger program, doesn’t mean they aren’t out there and aren’t trying to find you.
What Is Key Logging?
Keylogging is where cyber criminals place malware on your computer to steal your keystrokes. You can still type and open programs without a problem, and in most cases, don’t even know there is a problem. In the background, unbeknownst to you, a keylogger can:
- See what you type
- See your screen (advanced versions)
- Gain access to passwords, preferred websites you frequent, credit and debit card information
- Use the information they get to steal all your money or steal your identity
How Companies Can Stop Them
Your information should be kept secret, and you have the right to keep it secret. You make sure that employees can’t take information off the server, or have options in place to allow them to use personal devices without it doing harm to your information or theirs. You may use whitelisting as a form of control and will likely use various reporting features to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
You may also have antivirus and antimalware software installed to keep out the riff-raff. However, a keylogger can still gain access to the system, even with all that in place. Our product does things differently, so if you’d like to learn more, please contact us today.
