Secure SQL server using by Sharepoint.

We use Mcafee virusscan on our SQL servers and usually skip to scan the SQL folders.  Ever since Sharepoint was introduced in our company, users have been upload a lot of word or excel files from the Sharepoint websites into the SQL database.

I just want to get some advise of how I should secure our Sharepoint server which has SQL running as well.

Thanks.

I suggest you let the antivirus scan the SQL folders, but configure it to quarantine infected or suspecious files instead of deleting them.

I am not sure if the Sharepoint Database in SQL Server stores uploaded files in a FILESTREAM. Please have a look at this whitepaper from Microsoft (read the Security section): http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc949109(v=sql.100).aspx
