    Virus Protection of a NT Server

    Locked

    by weirong_w_lue ·

    I set up a NT4 server with IIS4, DNS, and Exchange server 5.5 on the same machine. This NT4 server machine is used as the front end to serve multiple web sites of a small company. The NT4 service pack 6a with roll-up security patch was installed on this server. This server is directly connected to a router to get on the internet. Of course, this server is also connected to the primary domain controller through LAN.

    Questions:
    (A) I would like to know what virus protection software thatI should install in order to provide sufficient amount of virus protection for this server.

    (B) Is there any other software that I should intall to prevent “the intruder”?

      check out TrenMicro either OfficeScan corporate or individual components to cover the server and you need something for email because of Exchange.

      As far as other software you would need to asses the risk. There are all kinds of solutions both hardware and software that you could use the questions is does it make business sense. It sounds like you are up on service packs and hotfixes, if you have a good backup plan and the business is ok with the amount of down time that would be involved then you are good, but if they can’t affornd any down time or security breakes and are willing to pay for that then do some research and beef things up a level or two.

      Inoculan is the one we are currently using. And if you looking for something that will stop an intruder then install a firewall on the network.

      As far as the Mcafee is concerned make sure u have netshield sw configured.

      Regards,
