One of the keys to keeping a small business up and running is protecting critical information safe from potential spyware, malware and spam threats. Small businesses need an easy, reliable, cost-effective way to make sure their important data is secure and available. In today’s environment of exponential data growth and more sophisticated threats, protection requires more than just antivirus.

Security threats are increasing in complexity and number, and many are now designed to target specific information while also evading detection by a single security mechanism such as antivirus. And many of today’s attacks do not discriminate based on the size of the company. In addition to this the volume of information small businesses must protect continues to expand.

A multi-faceted suite that provides protection and backup and recovery capabilities will allow small businesses to protect the information that drives their businesses.

Current malware...

When ever there is problem with the liveudpate not downloading the defnintions and you come across the error codes (e.g LU1835) which might not mean any thing to you, well below is the information which will help you to determine what exactly those numbers means.

1800 The operation was successful or the patch installed successful
1801 The user pressed the Cancel button or some other process (callback) told LiveUpdate to Cancel.
1802 COM Initialization failed (CoInitialize() function comes back as failed.) - We display a Windows Message Box at the start of LiveUpdate processing, before we create LuComServer.exe and before we create the normal UI.

Direct Agents, a New York city-based advertising agency with 40 employees, is in a small majority of SMBs that have implemented an effective security system. An April 2009 Symantec survey on the storage and security in small and mid-sized businesses found that while SMBs are familiar with cyber risks and have clearly defined goals for security and storage, a surprisingly high number (33%) have yet to take even the most basic steps towards protecting their businesses, such as implementing antivirus or backing up their data.

As an advertising agency focused on interactive, online media, Direct Agents employees spend their workdays visiting websites and reading email that other companies might consider suspect. For that reason, protection at Direct Agents needs to occur at each individual computer. Because the company...

Hi Team,

Although we are fortunate to have generous gurus in the field of Symantec AV, still many of us here in this forum needs additional support to master our trade, IT Security.
We need additional information and data that would satisfy our constant thirst for knowledge.
I felt that a blog where we could put all Symantec videos, wether trainings or interviews from the masters could help us to accomplish this feat.

Let's use this blog to help others gain more thru learning.
Being a new member in this forum, This helped me to gain a third of what I know about Symantec through the generous thoughs of our fellow members and advisers.
I also notice that many members in Symantec Connect requests for learning videos.
Why not have a blog that links to them.
Let me start by including this link in the blog.

For Me First of all

                  1) It should detect All Viruses and Spywares .(most important) It should scan and detect anything that enters to the system via any medium such as Ethernet or Bluetooth etc.

                  2) A good firewall which should be easy to configure and troubleshoot.

                  3) It should be a small program so that it uses less resource.

                  4) A feature through which I can block files and programs to run so that even if a new threat comes and antivirus unable to detect it but I know what files and process it is using , I can manually block the files and programs...
