Antivirus and antispam in the cloud

These days, it’s all cloud this and cloud that. It’s pretty overcast up there. But every cloud has a silver lining and this is yours: putting your antivirus up among the jet trails frees up your IT staff for better stuff, while your servers take a well-earned tea break.

The cloud can also help you scan your email before it hits your servers, so that you can forget about managing your antivirus and antispam solutions, which can also clog up your server’s resources.

Other benefits of cloud-based operations include reduced centralised administration and reliance on users. Storing your antivirus solution in the cloud requires only one update of its signatures. Much better than managing and updating individual software installed on several servers.

And then there’s spam. Spam can dramatically affect the available bandwidth for your Internet connection. You can beat this by filtering spam emails from legitimate emails in the cloud. You get the maximum available bandwidth using only the services your business requires.
