If you have ever wanted an anti-virus solution that allows complete protection while offering you speed and flexibility without experiencing any slowdown in performance then GFICloud has you covered. They have recently moved their anti-virus program so that it is now stored and works on their cloud based network. This means that you will get real-time updates as soon as any new virus, spyware, worm, Trojan, rootkit, or whatever is discovered and defined. Better still, since this is all securely stored on cloud based servers there is nothing to slow your system or eat up resources.
Perhaps the best feature offered by GFI Cloud is that control over the entire program resides in one centralized location. This online, cloud hosted solution resides in a password-protected user area that makes everything much easier to manage. This also means that just about any type of threat you can imagine is handled through the system. Malware, spyware, anti-phishing, Trojans, rootkits, and more are all accurately identified and then dealt with. The online interface actually allows you to see which items have been identified as threats and placed into quarantined status. It is easy to view everything going on with any computer or device you have added to the protection service. The service is fast, with no drag on individual machine resources, and they even offer a 30-day free trial.
Since this service is cloud based there is only a single plan offered. The service has received some strong rating from AV Comparatives and other anti-virus testing organizations. Everything is included in terms of anti-virus protection in a single solution. However, customers do have the option of upgrading by choosing additional services, although these are aimed at a number of additional business applications.
There really is no specific Internet Security Suite offered through the GFI Cloud service. At the same time, most of what would normally be considered useful in such a feature has already been included. For example, each machine that you place into the service does include a personal firewall along with things like anti-phishing and even malicious program detection and removal. The interface actually moves the identified threats to something akin to a sandbox (they call it a quarantined area). It is here that you can control its ultimate fate. Everything runs on policies which you can change and control.
This service is mainly geared towards business customers. This is evident by the fact that they require a minimum of 10 computers or devices to be placed with the service. Despite the fact that most individual users are not ready for such a high-end solution, it can be an excellent and affordable option for business clients. The pricing is excellent at just £1 per user/device per month. Yes, this means that you can protect the entire office or enterprise for as little as £10 per month. This is very affordable and, given all the features included, an excellent value as well.
Obtaining customer support is also quite easy at GFICloud.com. For starters, you can submit a help request directly from the user interface within the system. There are also a full complement of email addresses and phone support numbers, based on your country of residence. The UK does have a regional office and you will find the staff members quite knowledgeable and helpful. You can also connect with the company via social media like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Google Plus.
With everything centralized there is certainly an easy to use factor at work here. Simply log in to the system and you will find a very user friendly interface. Everything is laid out quite nicely, with full instructions and clearly labeled buttons and links. One of the nicest features of the system is the ability to see each device. Clicking on its logo or image will bring up a listing of everything that is going on with that machine.
If you are looking for a combination of power and ease of use that goes great in a small business or office environment, then there is no need to look further than GFICloud.
