Remote Take over Protection Can Prevent Many Crimeware Problems

While most company executives understand the need for privacy and security when it comes to computers and other Internet-capable devices, most don’t know exactly what to do or what the problems are. At Comodo, we believe in arming our clients with information so they can make informed decisions, stay on track and keep corporate data secure.

Crimeware isn’t a single category within malware software. It is more like a definition of the malware used for any financial gain. These can include:

  • Massive attacks
  • Identity theft
  • Targeted attacks
  • Remote Takeover, as with zombies and botnets
  • Keyloggers
  • Trojans
  • Phishing
  • Dialers

Remote take over protection can help prevent those problems and more, but you have to use the correct products to help.

What It Is

Remote take over protection will ensure that hackers and thieves cannot take control of your computer or device remotely. What this means is that they can sit in their home or wherever they prefer to do their hacking and manipulate your computer however they want. They can open files, browsers and more. If you prefer to save your passwords, they will have instant access to all financial documents and credit card information.

In most cases, they set up a Trojan or other virus to start the infection and then introduce a bot so it can be controlled remotely without your knowledge.

We believe that everyone should have remote take over protection, so they are less at risk for this problem.

Implications

The problems associated with remote control of computers is that all of your data could be at risk. Employees who like to check their personal email on their lunch break could find that their emails are attacked by viruses. Malware like this can easily be sent to someone else, so it is important to stop it in its tracks. Contact us today to learn more.
