Antivirus Protection for Dell Storage Servers

When Dell wanted to protect its storage servers (Windows Storage Server 2003), from Internet threats it selected ESET NOD32 Antivirus. Dell's technical evaluation team put several antivirus products and their threat detection capabilities through rigorous testing. After evaluating the big names, they tried ESET NOD32 Antivirus. When their performance monitoring application displayed zero change in CPU utilization, Dell concluded ESET NOD32 Antivirus must not be running. However, closer inspection revealed that it was indeed running, but the resource utilization was below the detection tolerance levels of the monitoring application!
