  1. 1. do you use Malware/Antivirus protection on your commercial NAS?

    • I use malware protection on my NAS
    • I use antivrus protection on my NAS
    • I use both malware and antivirus protection on my NAS
    • Nope, dont use either

in the QNap app store there are several options for malware/anti virus apps. Ditto for the synology store.   Safe to say other platforms have them also.



but the broader question  are these necessary ?



do you use either Malware protection or Antivirus or both ?


would like to see what the community at large is doing for there NAS's


(whats the plural of NAS ?  NASII ?)

I use it on the units I have had in the past, there's not really been any performance hit and there have been a few things that its picked up as files are coming from less savoury locations..

I have both on my Synology (or rather on all the Synology devices I manage). Whilst it is not strictly required I would rather run it and have it not find anything than having something happen that it may have caught.
