Escan Anti Virus

The Anti-Virus and Internet Security industry is huge. Pay Anti viruses and free versions all making promises to protect you. For more information have a look at our article on “True cost of a free Anti-virus”.

But with so many Anti-virus products out there how does one choose.

True, it is best to have some protection as opposed to none. But no Anti-virus can promise total protection. Some use too much resources, some are excellent in one area of protection but fall short in other areas, some pickup false viruses. After many years of not selling Anti-virus products, the Phorce team, working together with security analysts, has found that the best Anti-virus protection out there is a little known programme out there called Escan.

Unlike other Anti-viruses Escan holds its position as the best and most stable Anti-virus, Anti-malware, cloud security, internet security and mail security programme out there.

We don’t say that it is good in order sell it. Rather, we sell it because it is the best and it is the only Anti-virus that we have confidence in. But not even Escan can promise 100% protection.

But such is our confidence in this product is that we undertake to clean your machine at no charge if you have an infection while using Escan. 

Please note that the most dangerous malware out there is ransomware and although Escan does quarantine such emails, we urge you not to open attachments from unknown senders.

No matter how much money and no matter how much security you put into place, there is always a chance of a hard drive or machine crashing. Machines can be replaced, but how does one replace years of valuable information. The only way is make regular backups. See our article “the importance of backups.”

Experience shows that backup systems put in place are generally not done timeously and regularly. In many cases not all information is backed up. Many backup systems are not efficient. 

We offer backup services on callout and retainer. Our price decreases based on the number of machines.
