Multiple Antivirus Providers - Corporate
Posted on 2016-10-19
Recently I saw a suggestion on the web that corporate networks should be protected by more than one antivirus provider to reduce the risks of relying on one particular provider to identify and/or protect against new threats.
Now I’m not sure if I am right on this but I have always been under the impression that using more than 1 antivirus solution can cause issues with each one identifying the other as a virus etc. Is this correct and if not, how common is it to use more than one provider? Surely even if you are using two, it doesn’t guarantee you are going to identify everything.
I believe the context of what I saw was specific to antivirus scanners, rather than saying an antivirus scanner and a malware scanner are in fact two products.
