A Glossary


A virus is a type of malware that spreads by infecting other files on a computer or network. It is typically spread through email attachments, downloads from the internet, or sharing infected files through USB drives or other external storage devices.

Viruses can have a significant impact on managed IT services as they can cause system crashes, data loss, and downtime for businesses. They can also spread quickly throughout a network, infecting multiple systems and compromising sensitive data. To prevent viruses from affecting managed IT services, it’s essential to have up-to-date antivirus software installed on all devices connected to the network.

Regular software updates and patches should also be applied to keep the system secure against newly discovered vulnerabilities. Additionally, educating employees on safe browsing habits and avoiding suspicious emails and downloads can also help prevent virus infections.

We have been using Quikteks as our IT support team for many years. They have always been responsive, polite, thorough and professional.
