When using non-persistent VDI windows instances that running AV but the storage is on NAS, should we also install AV on the NAS to do real-time scanning or it's good enough that we have AV running on the VDI windows user instances?

Was trying to understand what could be the threat and attack vectors that put the storage at risk if we won't use AV on NAS for user data storage that coming from VDI windows user instances.

    If you are sure the NAS is not used for anything else you are probably fine with having no protection. It mostly depends on what your auditors think (since malware protection is mostly to make them happy ;) – eckes Mar 30 at 16:31
