It is essential that small and medium businesses are aware that Keylogger software does all of the following so you can keep your information protected:

  1. The keylogger Software records absolutely EVERYTHING you type on the keyboard!

  2. Captures all Keystrokes, including Passwords

  3. Runs in Complete Stealth mode! So, you may not be aware of anything different.

Our Engineers on Tekorder’s Cybersecurity Team refers to them as Keylogger Trojans, or malware/bug. This is a piece of software that is used to collect all keystrokes which contain confidential information like bank passwords, remote desktop username passwords, email passwords, social security numbers, and credit card details.

Trojan keyloggers are sometimes called keystroke malware, keylogger viruses, and trojan horse keyloggers.

Keyloggers can infect your employee’s computer (endpoints) through various ways:

The most popular method for a keylogger to contaminate your computer is when your antivirus software gets outdated or turned off (or is not even installed). Virus protection tools that are not updated cannot fend against new keylogger programs; they’ll pass right through the AV software if it doesn’t understand how to protect your computer. You cannot trust the firewall in your computer either since they are not designed to pick up keyloggers.

Tekorder needs only 5 minutes to find if one device on your network has the proper protection and will cost less than $4.00 a month (per machine) to be fully protected from such virus attacks such as this one.
