This series is for anyone wanting a better understanding of the common malware types and related concepts needed to make informed decisions on which antivirus is right for their environment. We look at the consumer class antivirus software and demonstrating some of the common antivirus software one might encounter in a home network or small home business. We will also venture into antivirus software that scales to large businesses via enterprise-class software. This series will help a technician or the newcomer understand the difference between consumer class and enterprise class antivirus software

[SOUND] In this segment, we're gonna do an overview of our upcoming Antivirus/Anti-malware show. Now, Wes, what is this show all about for us? >> We're gonna be taking a look at some very important software inside of your computing environment. We're gonna be looking at things like antivirus solutions on the consumer side, we're gonna be looking at antivirus solutions on an enterprise side and talking about a lot of the components and some of the major components that you're gonna see inside of an anti-malware and an antivirus solution. >> Awesome, so who would you say is our target audience that would really need to be watching this series? >> Well I would say that there's a couple of target audiences if you will. In some of the portions we're gonna be looking things that you can use inside of a home environment. Well, if you just are in a home environment, you're not in the corporate world, you're not in computing inside of a work environment, well that's going to be for you too. But then we're also going to look at some enterprise-level solutions, and if you're on a security team or maybe you're thinking about joining a security team, you want to be familiar with some of the products that scale up to a very large environment, well this is also going to be something that you should stick and watch. So, we've got two different audiences here, and I think when it comes down to it, Dan, both audiences are going to gain some benefit out of it. >> Yeah, I totally agree. Now what's a, what are some of the specific topics that we're going to jump into? Just so our audience, or the people that are watching this are going to know, hey that might look interesting and whet their appetite. >> Sure, so if you think about antivirus, anti-malware, well we need to start with some of the basic definitions on what malware even is, what is a virus? So, we're gonna start very basic. We're gonna start just informing you on some of the things that you need to watch out for. Why do you even need this software? Well, we're gonna show you why you need the software and some of the things that can go wrong on your computer. Or I should say, the things that you can get on your computer that can cause havoc. The other things that we're gonna look at is some of the consumer-grade software. Consumer-grade software being stuff that sometimes free, sometimes is a subscription, but it doesn't scale up in a large environment and you can use it on your everyday home networks. Then we're gonna move on to a little bit more advanced concepts. We're gonna move into technologies that require a lot more infrastructure. We're gonna have to have servers involved. You can have multiple workstations. We're gonna talk about things like centralized management and what that means to us. Versus contrasting inside of a home environment where maybe it's not so important that we get that. And we're also gonna talk about some things that you can use in order to remediate your devices, if you will, if you end up having things like computers shut down on you cuz the viruses won't start up. Well, we're gonna show you some technologies that can help you remediate that type of problem as well. >> Awesome, now a lot of the series that we do here at ITpro TV don't map to a specific exam. Is this one of those series? >> No, this isn't really gonna map to any exam, this is going to be more of a tech skills series. It's gonna be really just for everybody, so if you're looking for certifications or an exam format, that's not gonna be this. We're gonna look at all different kinds of software. We've got, I mean, a couple of handfuls of different technologies, but not really mapping to any one specific exam or any one vendor. But if that's something that you like, I'll tell you what tech skills are the way to go. >> NAS is very awesome. Now if that sounds interesting to you, well then be sure to join us in these upcoming shows. [SOUND]
