The system is great, and you can’t go wrong for the price. The value that you get for the price, is just incredible.”
- Ron Katz, President, R&J Auto Group
Ron Katz is no stranger to IT, having run the IT department for a large auto dealership group for the last 20 years. When it came time to secure the endpoints for his company, R & J Auto Group, PC matic Pro was his first choice. “We have 3 locations, which are Midas Auto Service franchises. We use our computers for our point-of-sale system, looking up parts, and stuff like that,” Ron explained. “We were looking for an all-in-one solution, where I’m able to remote login.”
“It was so easy. All I had to do was create the installer, tell it which location I wanted the computer to be under, and that was it. It was a very, very easy process for us.” As the President of a small company, Ron wears many hats, including maintaining the endpoints of all 3 locations. “If I need to do any work on something, I just pull up Margate or West Palm Beach or Home, and it shows all my computers under that location. It makes it very easy to work on.”
“What I like a lot, on the dashboard, it shows me the RAM; how much memory is being used. One was showing me that I’m using ‘X’ amount of memory, so I upped the memory to make the machine run even better. So there’s a lot of preventative stuff that it does for me as well.” Ron explained, detailing his favorite PC Matic Pro features. “If something is showing that should not be there or looks fishy, it flags it right away. As far as my machines go, I’ve had, knock on wood, no issues whatsoever with viruses or ransomware or anything like that, coming across our systems at all.”

Zero Trust Whitelisting Solutions. Only Application Allowlisting cybersecurity can prevent ransomware attacks and malware infections before they penetrate a network.
Cyber threats including ransomware and advanced targeted persistent attacks against small business and enterprise are increasing. Only Whitelisting Application Solutions can prevent these kinds of advanced malware attacks launched by cybercriminals that specifically target small business computer networks, laptops, online webstores, cash registers, endpoint devices, and entire IT departments.
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.
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 cyber-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 Solutions 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.
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.
