As an employee of a business, you will spend most of your life in work, from the moment the sun comes up, to the time of day when it starts to sink back down. As with most business positions, you will be spending most of your time online, which means you could be open to security threats that can gain entry to your business. This is a scenario that nobody wants to face, as it can impact a wider demographic than you alone. When you are at work, it's a great idea to follow a bank of simple tips, which will ensure the safety of your and your fellow staff members as you go about your daily business.

There is a range of free anti-viruses you can install, but the best ones are those which you pay a small sum for, which have heightened security features that have your online security at heart.

Meanwhile container-focused security solutions provide some vulnerability scanning and threat alerting, but cannot protect large amounts of the legacy infrastructure or actually stop attacks from happening.
