Virus Lab upgrade

Just over two years ago we put together our first purpose-built anti-virus testing lab. We're now upgrading it so that we can test more security products in less time - and expose them to more threats.

The new lab will be three times larger and will be relocated to its own secure basement lab space, with air conditioning and full-height rack-mounting facilities.

We've just received delivery of the desktop PCs that will be used as target systems i.e. their future involves myriad virus infections and hacker attacks. The KVMs and a new server arrived a week ago so the next step is to start wiring it all up and test the network.
