Re: adding another defence layer against viruses/worms

Juan,

Another direction to look at would be sandboxing the server
application(s) or even running a stateless server. There are several
solutions out there which could help isolate the application from the
rest of the system preventing the spread of any infections. Set the
server up in a DMZ/virtual LAN for further isolation and any
infections should be well contained.

Also combine that with a better anti-virus system, or use an
proxy/anti-virus solution to handle all incoming connections to the
server to reduce the occurrence of infections.

Hi all,

I'm doing some security consulting for a client. this client have around 30 remote branches connected to his core. 
the problem is that sometimes the AV fails to detect new viruses/worms coming from those branches so those 
viruses/worms mess up his LAN.another problem is that the the client doesn't have much of control over the remote PCs 
in the branches. so I thought about adding another layer of defence in which we will add an IPS (which Ips detects 
also viruses/worms??) which will filter and scan all traffic coming from the branches.

I just wonder if you guys agree with my suggestion.

any comments will be welcomed.

BTW,

any recomendations for the IPS?

thanks a lot
juan
