i had experience with symantec corporate - it has such feature - central local antivirus server
i had an problem with hole in windows - the hole was used by some worms
and network was almost completely blocked
and in this situation symantec corporate was
helpless and hopeless … because the central server was unavailable …
i was system administrator and i know that to maintain reliable server in virused environment
is nightmare and is too difficult …
instead i would suggest comodo the next idea :
what if it was possible to download updates from the next computer in the network ?
i think if someone can make updates to be download in peer to peer mode…
(i mean every comodo instance to be a peer to peer server for updates)
it would be some advantages i think .
at least reliability of providing updates would increase significantly …
and the problem with small network with bandwidth restrictions would be
solved automatically …
of course there is some difficulties in this
for example it is possible to spread fake updates and compromise
comodo but perhaps there could be solution - for example before
downloading from somewhere updates the client should contact comodo
to check some md check sums to ensue that updates are genuine
or the users could create list of trusted friends from which to download updates
i think this idea is not bad
and second something that comodo should think about (if it not already does -
i hope this note is not needed because comodo had already taken needed measures)
for example i have suspicions that some antivirus could be interfered by some network
activity that could spoil antivirus performance.
so comodo should think about ways comodo antivirus to protect itself form
such interference .
