TRA Consulting, Inc. believes in security in layers; and as such, we highly recommend the implementation of a Network Edge Antivirus Solution. Our experience with these products makes us a great choice to assist your organization in deploying a Network Edge Antivirus Solution.
Network Edge Antivirus is not a replacement for host-based antivirus solutions. The purpose of this is to act as a first-line of defense; an additional layer in the line of defense against would-be attackers.
We recommend an Antivirus system on the Network Edge in most cases for many reasons:
- A network appliance assumes responsibility for processing data, relieving the burden on hosts
- Inspects data at the network layer, rather than the application-layer
- Locates itself at the best choke-point for traffic (network edge)
- Less points of failure than a host-based system
