I haven't actually reached this mission yet, but I think the easiest way to do it is as follows:

I'm going to assume poorly leveled programs. Unless you're very quick, you'll need at least level 2 Access, level 6 Beams, and probably 90 program slots. Less if you have stronger Beams and Ice Walls + Protector.

Wraith a Code Gate and the Scanner, then Portal the Black Ice that's closest to the Core. Then place one more Access and Wraith one of the Code Gates nearest the other side of the network. 5 Access, 3 Wraiths, 1 Portal, theoretical total visibility without human reaction times = 3359.2

Shocker, then excessive beams on the Black Ice should prevent the Sentries from spreading antivirus to that half of the network. The Shocker is needed to buy extra time as you'll also have to smash through the walls that Guardian will place on the Sentries. At some point you need to place a Worm on this Black Ice, which will capture the rest of this half of the network, but most of your attention should be on the other half of the network. You want to brute force your way through as much of it as possible before that antivirus can spread far. Thanks to the second Gate you Wraithed, you should be able to secure one Turret, one Black Ice, and the Guardian before AV can spread to them. Ice Wall and Protector where necessary. I'd bring at least two Protectors (for the Guardian and the Database) and four Ice Walls. Much more if they're only level 1. You might also want to bring a Blaster and place it on the Scanner to help capture the last two Code Gates.
