Defending web servers from attacks by crackers has a very different approach to that used to defend your standard desktop. Our servers run a Linux operating system that has unnecessary services disabled, and will not be infected by conventional desktop viruses (as these target the windows platform). We are rigorous in our approach to securing our servers and services.

So, to answer the initial question, we do not use Anti-Virus software because it is irrelevant to our platform. We do, however, follow best practices for mitigating and preventing attacks against the Synthasite platforms.

Is there a specific reason you asked the question about anti-virus?
