We are using Symantec Client Security in our company network. It supposedly provides centralized management of both anti-virus and firewall processes throughout the network.
Not mentioned in the sales literature however, is that it does not install the firewall component in the computers used to manage the clients. These are the so-called "Management Servers". The firewall component is installed only in computers running the client side of Symantec Client Security. Worse, it actually instructs to turn-off the Microsoft Windows Firewall during installation of the server software.
So now I want to install Zone Alarm Pro in the 2 computers running the Symantec Client Security Management Server. Is this possible? I particularly want it for ZA's OS Firewall function, the network is already behind a router/firewall so I'm more worried by worms entering via infected websites or Windows/browser vulnerabilities.
I would very much appreciate any answers, related experience, or pointers to the above.
Operating System:Windows XP Pro
