As more and more businesses bear the brunt of the economic downturn and budgets are drastically cut, security is often the first area to suffer. With cybercrime on the increase and threats becoming more dangerous and frequent, businesses can ill-afford to ignore security. If anything, they need to beef up their defenses. This is why GFI is giving away a 5-IP freeware version of its award-winning product GFI LANguard- to assist organizations shore up their defenses and secure their networks.
"In this contracting economy, we believe that vendors should work with businesses to assist them in sustaining a viable business until the economy bounces back. We view ourselves not only as a vendor but also - and equally importantly - as a business partner that understands our customers' needs and is actively doing something to help," Walter Scott, CEO at GFI said.
"With this in mind and to tangibly convey to our customers that WE CARE, we are giving away a freeware version of GFI LANguard, one of our leading security products. We are doing this for two reasons. First, we want to help business owners to continue focusing on security issues even though they don't have the budgets and, second, we want to encourage them to take security to another level and fully understand that security goes beyond anti-virus and anti-spam. With this fully functional 5-IP version of GFI LANguard we are giving something back to businesses and helping them keep their networks secure," he added.
