We Like SOPHOs for Safe Web Browsing, eh!
SOPHOs rocks in our world! Yes, this is an un-adulterated review of one of the best, leading-edge safe browsing software companies out there!
Yes, they are in the business of providing anti-virus, security software and data protection…it’s a commercial business that we found years ago from RackSpace our data center (voted best in NA and I’ll talk about their fanatical support at another time, eh!) — but what I like about SOPHOs is more — much more than that, eh!
First, there’s the software that you can get free trials and downloads on, just click and save and install. Then there are the free tools that offer up remote looks at your computer for everything from rootkits to network scans that utilize their most up-to-date technologies and information. Then there are their enterprise level demos that can help with endpoint security from everything from email spam to MS Exchange management too. And if that’s not enough, they also have both pre-recorded live webinars on tons of topics and higher-end appliance demos too that you can register for right on their site. And then there’s the Hot Topics area….that’s chock full of more security notes too — go here to see same! And then there’s their “Threat Spotlight” that offers up daily updates on all things unsecure and web browsing, email phishing too. Trot over there for a good read anytime, eh!
All of that is great…but for many of you who’ve noticed a “new” widget on our site, yes….as you can see it’s the latest Safe Web Security widget from SOPHOS….that offers the following —
- Potentially dangerous sites
- How to choose a strong password
- The need to keep web browsers updated
- Staying safe on Facebook
It’s down there on the far right hand sidebar here on our site. When you land, it clicks itself “on” and then shows you in a few screens information about how to browse safely! These simple tips include pointers on all of the above and a click on the arrows will load either previous or next screens if you click on same, or they’ll all appear in a slide show.
Take a gander at same. They’re great tips and ones we should ALL remember in today’s browsing of the web, eh! It’s totally free. You can add it to your blog for free. It is GREAT info…and there is a full further many page .pdf too if you wish to know more about Safe Web Browsing, eh! Now that’s a deal to anyone anywhere!
Oh, one furtther thing to consider. SOPHOs is in the business of web security, so yes, they have top notch bloggers that post news and exploit discoveries almost daily. My own favourite is by Chester Wisniewski, and his blog always has something of value in it every single post….and here’s a link to all that are offered…
Disclaimer: SOPHOs…we don’t know anybody there, we get nada from them financially now or ever and we expect only the help educate you readers on a great security asset you can get yourownselves, eh! So go…read…research…and gain security, eh!Google
