A network is one of the main ways of virus spreading. That is why network protection and network traffic scanning are so important for computer security. Endpoint and Anti-Virus that protects from mail borne threats, web based threats, IM threats, network attacks and firewall components all work together to create a responsible solution for network protection. These components should perform the following tasks:
- Block and delete malware programs at early penetration stages, before they are saved in the computer file system
- Block network attacks, including the attacks that run infected code without saving it in the file system
- Prevent epidemics and data leakage, if an infected computer gets introduced into the network..
