When you are facing multiple threats from multiple locations, you need multiple layers of protection. A firewall's gateway anti-virus solution provides the first layer of defense at the perimeter, stopping most attacks before they enter the network. But viruses can still enter the network through multiple entry points. While protection at multiple layers is the best defense, deploying, maintaining and enforcing the right security software on the endpoint devices can strain IT resources and budgets. This has created the need for a manageable, enforced network-wide solution that ensures all endpoints have the latest security software updates.
