Keep data size small – and security-levels high

With Dualog® AV Distribution, transmission cost is kept at a minimum by ensuring small update files, efficient transport protocol and updates only sent once per ship before distributing to onboard computers. The service takes full advantage of advanced Dualog® transfer protocols to compress files and optimise bandwidth usage. Administrators receive an alert if patterns on individual computers are outdated, reducing the risk of viruses or other harmful code to affect onboard computers.
