We’ve all heard of it before, but what exactly is malware?

Malware is any software intentionally designed to cause damage to a computer, server, client, or computer network once it is embedded into a target’s computer. Malware can take the form of codes, scripts, active content, and other software.

Malware attacks can be harmful to all companies, but can be especially devastating to smaller businesses. According to SCORE, the nation’s largest network of volunteer, expert business mentors and a resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration, 43% of cyber attacks target small businesses. At MainStreet IT, we provide enterprise-level anti-virus protection at an affordable price for small and mid-size businesses.
