What is the role of anti-virus software in your regulatory compliance efforts?
By Christopher Jones
It's impossible to use an Internet-connected computer today without being surrounded by threats from viruses, hackers, and malicious code. But exactly which areas of the infrastructure are at risk is an oft-debated topic. Some popular views hold that client PCs are at risk and midrange servers are safe. Other views hold that the transmission process flows from the client PC to the midrange server. The first view is false. In today's interconnected environments, no system is immune to virus infection. The second view is true, but it's only part of the story.
