However secure you think your systems are, every network has a dark corner or weak spot somewhere within it.
Most businesses have antivirus software or a wider protection package for user endpoints including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones. Many have security for their servers. But todayís sophisticated threats and malware often hide away deep within the network, utilising the blackspots where some security solutions donít look.
Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint and Network Attached Storage all allow executable files to be stored, but they cannot be scanned by standard antivirus software. This makes them perfect places for malicious threats to hide Ė even if the malware is detected by a desktop or server antivirus during file transfer, the root cause of the infection will not be neutralised.
Symantec Protection Engine for NAS enables you to illuminate the dark places within your network, ensuring that malware has nowhere to hide.
