    What do you think about Panda's Antivirus as a hardware? Is there any other that kind of products?

    Hi,

    I didn't know about that "Panda's Antivirus as a hardware".

    There surely are other appliances; be prepared, they are expensive.
    To name a few:

    Symantec Gateway Security :
    http://enterprisesecurity.symantec.com/products/products.cfm?productid=133

    Ositis eShield (I thought it was called in the past Ositis AVstripper, but I guess there have been made some changes):
    http://www.ositis.com/english/products/eshield/pd_eshield_en.asp

    I thought that McAfee also has something like that.


    Or you could for example build your own Linux box and run an appropriate AV on it.

    Has anyone actually seen this in person?

    http://www.bodacion.com/

    (If you remember, this was the company that claimed the product to be unhackable, cash prize to anyone who could break in ($100,000 I believe), been about or over 2 years and still no claim to the prize)

    Re. Symantec Gateway Security ...

    @ http://www.rokop-security.de/board/index.php?showtopic=2042 we had an interesting discussion about hardware and software (= personal) firewalls.

    Recently, the product from Symantec was tested by German c't magazine. It seems that this hardware firewall offers almost no outbound protection.

    "Um den Nutzen der Intrusion-Prevention-Funktionen einzuschätzen, muss man nach verschiedenen Angriffsszenarien unterscheiden. In einem Intranet sind die Rechner ohnehin durch die herkömmliche Firewall mit Paketfilter und Statefull Inspection gegen Angriffe von aussen geschützt. Erlaubt sind lediglich Verbindungen, die von innen nach aussen gerichtet sind.

    Von den aktuellen Schwachstellen des Internet Explorer ... über die sich beispielsweise Trojaner auf einem Rechner installieren lassen, entdeckt das IPS jedoch keinen einzigen. Ein einmal ins LAN eingeschmuggelter Trojaner konnte in unseren Tests auch ohne Alarm nach Hause telefonieren. Das Security Gateway bietet für diesen Fall lediglich ein paar wenige IRC-Regeln, die jedoch angesichts tausender unterschiedlicher Trojaner-Variationen keinen nennenswerten Schutz bieten. Auch einen DNS-Tunnel aus dem LAN ins Internet, über den wir einen Rechner fernsteuerten und Viren ins LAN schleusten, entdeckte das IPS nicht."

    The integrated Symantec AV technology is also well-known for it's bad performance in respect of trojans.

    Actually, I believe that hardware solutions do not necessarily offer a better protection than software-based consumer solutions.
