priority. Trouble-free access to this data and its exchange
within the company also form the basis of trouble-free communication and business activity. However, handling and
managing this data hold serious dangers: the file servers
responsible for distributing and storing the data in the net-
spread further via servers and carry out their harmful functions everywhere in the network – often with devastating and scarcely controllable
consequences for the company concerned. In addition, companies bear
responsibility for risk prevention: They are liable for damages resulting
from insufficient IT security.
The solution
Avira AntiVir Security Solutions ensure comprehensive,
professional protection of your servers – permanently and
reliably. Virus definitions and search algorithms are always
up-to-date, as they can be updated while the system is in use
– without impairing operation. Every file access is scanned in
real-time. In addition, it is possible to start individual scans
and specifically scan individual drives, directories and folders. The resource-saving Avira AntiVir virus and malware
detection technology is extremely fast, so that systems do
not suffer from decreased performance even with maximum
data throughput.
The new Version 8 enables separate product, engine and VDF updates
giving the administrator complete flexibility. There are diff erent update
options that offer the administrator the ability to create an individual
configuration for the update.
Configuration options can be handled individually for the on-demand
and the on-access scanner. Different system settings can be set for both
search and test methods.
The quarantine manager enables the handling of isolated files, these can
be saved in their original location, a specified location or can be sent to
Avira for analysis.
