Security for your data in the business.
Server security is corporate security. Avira AntiVir Server ensures that the central receiving and distributing stations of
your network under Windows and Unix are protected against
virus attacks. The program does not only have innovative technologies for reliable virus and malware detection, it does also
offer you well thought out, efficient update and management
functions for minimum administration costs.
Companies‘ own digital data records is a precious, usually irreplaceable commodity. Protecting them therefore has high priority. Trouble-free access to this data and
The challenge
its exchange within the company also form
the basis of trouble-free communication and business activity.
However, handling and managing this data holds serious dangers: the file servers responsible for distributing and storing
the data in the network are the favorite targets of viruses and
other malware.
Attackers ruthlessly exploit insufficient server security. Infected files can 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.
Avira AntiVir Security Solutions ensure comprehensive, professional protection of your servers – permanently and reliably.
Virus definitions and search algorithms
The solution
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.
Avira AntiVir Server (Windows) enables separate product, engine and VDF updates giving the administrator complete flexibility. There are different update options that offer the administrator the ability to create an individual configuration for
the update.
Configuration options can be handled individually for the ondemand and the on-access scanner. Different system settings
can be set for both search and test methods.
