Sometimes referred to as computer security, Information Technology security is information security applied to technology (most often some form of computer system).

Updates and enhancements are common, as vendors are doing their best to create software that’s smarter than the bad guys.

The challenge for many IT solutions providers is knowing which product is right for you and your customers.
