Previous Security: AVG

We needed protection, because we were using AVG, and AVG wasn’t always protecting us like I thought it should.”

- Ben Gilliard, Owner Cross Way Christian Supply

Before PC Matic Pro...

“We were using AVG, and AVG wasn’t always protecting us like I thought it should,” Ben Gilliard, President of Cross Way Christian Supply, explained when asked why he made the switch to PC Matic Pro. “We did get infected one time with some sort of malware that would always pop up on the screen and not let you do anything or go anywhere without harassing you.” Ben added, “It just didn’t feel right. I really didn’t like the pricing structure, because I could only get 10 or 20 or 30, or whatever the even numbers were that they were pricing at that point in time.”

Why PC Matic Pro?

“I used PC Matic for 5 users, and I had that experience behind me for about a year. We were using that and never had a problem of any sort, and I liked that. Then I added another 5 to start using in the store, because I didn’t have enough AVG licenses to actually do it without buying another license. So, I said, ‘Well, I’m not going to do that. I’m just going to buy [PC Matic].’ I bought it and used for about a year when we went to PC Matic Pro.”

Favorite PC Matic Pro Feature

As the owner of a small business with multiple locations, Ben wears many hats and counts on being able to maintain his endpoints from wherever he is. “My favorite feature is being able to log in and actually see all the machines, and be able to remotely access those machines if I need to. Because I’m the only one that gets in, you know? It’s just me and no one else actually. I own the company, but I’m also the only administrator for everything. It makes it real simple for me to keep up with all the machines.”

Cybercriminals are intent on disrupting business operations, stealing credit card numbers, customer data, and ransoming business records including personally identifiable information (PII) such as debit and credit card numbers, social security numbers, dates of birth, addresses, etc.

Preventing Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) on Small Business

An advanced persistent threat (APT) is a targeted cyber-attack on a business in which a hacker gains access to the computer system and remains undetected for a long period of time until they initiate their attack. APT attacks are launched to steal or ransom data needed to run the business rather than cause damage to the target company's computer, server or network.

Persistent Targeted Ransomware Attacks on Small Business IT Systems. With persistent targeted ransom attacks, owners, IT workers, or departments may be unaware for quite some time that their servers or IT network have been compromised or hacked into. Cybercriminals are increasingly targeting small business IT assets to disrupt operations, steal and ransom confidential customer data for financial gain.

The best cyber security solution to prevent hacking of business IT systems for ransom is for business owners to use Application Allowlisting as part of a layered approach to cybersecurity. Application Allowlisting works together with Application Blacklisting, and endpoint antivirus software to completely secure a company's network, endpoint devices, credit card data, online transactions, and servers.

What is an Application Whitelist?

An Application Whitelist is a list of applications and program files that are authorized for use on a company's servers. PC Matic application allowlisting technologies use automated whitelists to control which applications are permitted to execute on a device, server or network.
