Protect

Computer security protection is important and does not have to be hard to do.  BSCANS will ensure you have a current antivirus installed, as well as install and configure Malwarebytes.  And more.

Securing your computer with the correct software is vital.  As part of BSCANS Protect program, we offer four additional services, as well as signing you up for our daily news and quarterly newsletter.

  1. Remote access- this will allow BSCANS to remotely access your computer in the event of any problems you encounter, as well as scheduled checkups.
  2. Current antivirus.  BSCANS will ensure you have a current (not expired) antivirus program.  If you are paying for antivirus right now, BSCANS can determine if you are eligible for free antivirus from your Internet Service Provider (ISP) (Read more about that  here)
  3. In addition to antivirus, BSCANS uses and believes in another layer of protection, that provided by Malwarebytes.  This is an anti-malware program that helps keep you away from phishing and malicious sites, stops the download of PUPs (possibly unwanted programs) and malware. BSCANS will install and configure Malwarebytes as part of the Protect program.
  4. BSCANS will perform an initial check up, and continue that quarterly.  After that check up, BSCANS will email you a report detailing any issues found, recommendations, and schedule the next checkup.
