I need your help with a question on Gateway Anti-Virus and Desktop/Server Anti-virus.
The example I have is the following:
You have a network of 50 machines (Desktops/Servers) which includes a router that is also a gateway anti-virus.
The servers are linux and the desktops are windows.
There is a policy in place where USB flash drives are not allowed to be inserted into any machine at any time so nothing malicious could be run from that drive.
The Gateway Anti-virus is suppose to protect anything viral or malicious that is requested to enter the network from the outside.
In this example, what are the benefits of having anti-virus software on both Servers or Desktop's Computers even if you have a gateway anti-virus in place?
