Pros and Cons of Multiple Servers with Filtering Software



  • This solution provides a high degree of redundancy, meaning that if one server malfunctions the others can act as a backup.
  • Increased expenses due to the need for more bandwidth, hardware, and software licensing
  • High initial expense for specialized hardware that will eventually become obsolete
  • Product-specific expertise required from network administrator or MSP
  • Maximum effectiveness may require a recurring subscription for software, firmware, support, or filter definition sets
  • Utilizes much more bandwidth locally in contrast to external solutions
  • A power outage or failure of your Internet connection will cause messages to be bounced back to the sender.
