Desktop Optimization & Management

A healthy computer system requires routine updates. A Encompass™ technician will ensure that your computers receive current service packages including Windows Updates, Office Updates, anti-virus updates and anti-spyware updates.

Spyware & Adware Prevention
Spyware and Adware are computer programs that computer users may accidentally download onto their computer. Spyware monitors the computer user’s activity on the Internet, gathers files, email addresses, and password information, and transmits that information to an outside source. Adware also collects computer user’s activities and uses that information to show internet advertising on the computer’s browsers – often resulting in the user being bombarded with pop-up ads. Both types of program are uninvited and almost always unwanted. Encompass™ will prevent both Spyware and Adware from entering by continuously monitoring your company’s computers and by educating employees on ways to avoid inadvertently downloading these programs. Encompass™ stops Spyware and Adware before it occurs.

VPN Client Management
A VPN, virtual private network, allows you to securely access your company network and files remotely. Encompass™ will create and maintain a VPN for you.

Security

Antivirus Software Management & Updates
Viruses can bring your business to a screeching halt and damage critical data. Encompass™ will monitor and manage your company’s network security, antivirus software, firewall, and VPN (virtual private network) as well as install security programs to protect your information and systems.

Software Patch Management
Software patches are routine security and stability software upgrades provided by software companies to solve discovered software security issues. These patches are designed as intermediate solutions until the next software release. Encompass™ will install and manage patches to keep your software secure and stable, protecting your computers from downtown or lost data.
