Business IT Plus has recently published a very interesting case study in which they explore the importance of having a good antivirus solution installed.
Business IT Plus has been working alongside multiple small businesses since 2002. By partnering with companies like Microsoft, ESET Antivirus, or Draytek Routers, they supply the big brands and build their own custom range of computers for all budgets.
