Anti-Virus Protection

Email-borne viruses, worms and Trojan horses can cause severe disruption to business critical systems and compromise the whole network in relatively short time. The most effective response to these common security threats is to stop malware before it can reach end user workstations. By engaging a centralized anti-virus protection, you're not only saving costs for possible damage recovery, but also adding a second layer protection to all networked computers, thus saving resources for end-user support.


Eliminate the risk right at the gateway.
