Antivirus Administration Guide for Hitachi NAS Platform

Part Number

The storage server architecture reduces the effect of a virus because the file system is hardware-based. This prevents viruses from attaching themselves to (or deleting) system files required for server operation. However, viruses can still propagate and infect user data files that are stored on the server. Therefore, customer support works with industry leading antivirus (AV) software vendors to ensure that the server integrates into an organization's existing AV solutions and without requiring special installations of AV software and servers. To reduce the effect that a virus may have on user data, customer support recommends that AV be configured for the server and that AV software run on all user workstations.
