Small Network ( 12 - 15 client nodes- 5 servers - two tape backups) Broadband gateway and hardware firewall.
How important is it to complement the network hardware firewall with software firewalls on the clients. And Why. I'll need to explain and justify to the CEO next week.
It was my undersatnding that Software Firewalls are recommended as an additional layer of security against unwanted outbound traffic that might easily pass the hardware firewall in outgoing traffic. Is this still valid.
Also what recommendations would you make for spyware utilities. Are most well secured networks running two different spyware products on all clients?
Thanks for all advice and commentary!
