O&O Syspectr supports you in protecting your systems against attacks from both outside and inside. There are three apps taking care of this: Windows Security, Windows Updates und USB Storage.
This app gives you an overview of the security of your systems. O&O Syspectr checks all the important attack points in Windows and warns you as soon as a potential problem arises.
Is a guest account still active or a User Account Control (UAC) turned off? Potential security gaps are spotted immediately and permanently monitored by O&O Syspectr.
Should the Windows Firewall be turned off, you get notified. You can respond immediately and turn it on, even when you’re on the road! O&O Syspectr monitors your antivirus programs to make sure they are up-to-date, activated and it prevents possible attacks.
Microsoft Defender Antivirus
88% of all companies in Germany were victims of cyber attacks in 2020/2021, causing a total damage to the German economy alone of over 220 billion euros annually (source: bitkom, August 2021, in German only). The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) recommends an up-to-date Virus protection solution as one of the main pillars of protection against malware such as blackmail trojans.
The new O&O Syspectr app “Microsoft Defender Antivirus” lets you control the Defender comprehensively and centrally for the first time – without having to set up a dedicated server. At a glance you get the current status of the virus definitions, detected threats and the times of the last scans.
Windows Updates and Updates for Windows Defender
Out-of-date operating systems are one of the most common attack points for hackers. That is why it is of the utmost importance that your systems always have the latest Windows updates and further Microsoft products installed. O&O Syspectr lists the available updates for you and you can decide if and when they should be installed.
Updates for Windows Defender are carried out automatically by O&O Syspectr as soon as they become available and providing you have activated the automatic installation of Windows updates on the computer. Windows itself only installs them after a certain time interval, which creates a security gap. O&O Syspectr closes that gap.
Protection against data theft
Connecting USB devices (sticks, hard disks or cell phones) poses a twofold risk: defective software can be transferred to the system, and in the other direction valuable data can be transferred from the computer onto the storage device and taken out of the company.
With the USB Storage app you can exclude connection of external devices, including smartphones, and be informed should such a device be connected to one of your systems.
