Security expert J2 Software will be showcasing its world-class, managed enterprise-grade security for any sized business at the upcoming ITWeb Security Summit, to be held in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

J2 Software CEO John Mc Loughlin says the Internet is full of online threats, from ransomware to fake anti-virus, from compromised Web sites to malicious Web sites, phishing, inappropriate content, infected downloads and cyber attacks.

Online banking fraud, fake classifieds, phishing scams, malware and viruses, ATM fraud, refund scams, fake invoices, advanced threats, zero day attacks and phishing campaigns are changing and being launched every day across the Internet; the attacks are increasing and always evolving.

"Don't become a victim of online security threats; take the simple step to secure all Internet traffic with J2 Home Secure and J2 SME Secure. Protect yourself, your business and your people whenever you are online. Also, do not let your lack of security resources limit your ability to secure your business," he warns.

J2 Home Secure and J2 SME Secure provide endpoint protection and Internet security, and they offer protection for up to R100 000 in the event of online fraud and theft. They also offer protection against EFT fraud, including transfer of funds to third parties where the details of the payee have been manipulated; transactions where a payee's identity is stolen, falsified or fraudulently altered.

"In an online world, it is becoming more difficult to identify what is safe and what is trying to steal your information or rip you off online. We all know of people who have been victims. The modern SME relies on the Internet to do business and to remain competitive in a hyper-connected world," he concludes.

This solution offers the modern consumer many compelling reasons to improve their security by having a managed cyber security service for any user. J2 also provides affordable layered security options to ensure that clients have securely backed up important files, and encrypted sensitive data, with the added advantage of having a single point of contact with J2's security specialists.

ITWeb Security Summit 2019, now in its 14th year in Johannesburg and second year in Cape Town, will again bring together leading international and local industry experts, analysts and end-users on 23 May 2019 at Southern Sun Cape Sun and at 28-29 May 2019 at Sandton Convention Centre.
