Brit bank Barclays' Kaspersky Lab diss: It's cyber balkanisation, hiss infosec bods



I only allow my antivirus through the firewall to update it's detection signatures and block it again after updating.

Even the free MalwareBytes will function with it blocked by a firewall. It will still scan and report any nasties but it won't remove anything unless it is connected to the web.
