Storage devices and platforms are not only targets for attack or data theft, but are also prime locations to store and serve malware to infect as many endpoint devices as possible.  As if this wasn’t a tough enough situation to mitigate given the performance requirements that users expect, organizations also need to prevent their users from storing unwanted files on expensive devices.

Symantec Protection Engine for Network Attached Storage (NAS) brings scalable, high-performance malware detection and prevention services powered by Symantec Insight directly to Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices.
