In today’s environment, it is particularly important for organizations to have a corporate anti-virus support or anti-malware policy in Calgary, Alberta, and the entire part of Western Canada.  These will help prevent infections cause by many types of malware including worms, Trojan horses, rootkits, spyware, key loggers, ransomware and adware.   Global Edge recommends a two-pronged approach using both an anti-virus program and an anti-malware program.  These two terms are often used interchangeably and although they sometimes overlap, each will offer better protection in different areas.
