Every desktop on the network represents several vectors of infection, or ways for viruses to enter the network. Floppy disks, CDs burned at home, personal email accounts, and PDAs are just a few of the routes a virus might take onto the network. That's why comprehensive, manageable desktop virus protection is essential. VirusScan is a top choice for the protection of desktops. A host of installation and customization features make it a manageable desktop anti-virus solution on the market today. VirusScan can detect known viruses in email attachments even before the message is opened. VirusScan will filter out malicious Java and ActiveX applets while users surf the web. VirusScan checks files for known viruses every time they are accessed - whether it's to move, copy, create, rename or download the file. In short, VirusScan puts total protection on the desktop. VirusScan's many features comprehensively cover all points of entry on the desktop. Email scanning checks email message attachments for known viruses as they arrive in the user's Inbox - so the files can be identified and cleaned even before the user accesses them. Download scanning prevents users from downloading infected attachments from websites or FTP servers. And VirusScan's Internet filter blocks hostile Java and ActiveX applets, while enabling administrators to block access to websites.
File servers are extremely useful, productive tools. Their utility in collaboration and file storage makes them indispensable. But it also makes them a favorite hiding place for viruses. When Joe User's out-of-date desktop virus protection allows him to upload a virus infected document, all the other users who access that file can become infected. And if the IT team starts backing up the data on the server regularly, even the backups can wind up infected if they're not careful. McAfee's NetShield server protection can eliminate these potential headaches. It offers both real-time scanning to detect and clean known viruses as files are accessed and on-demand scanning that allows scheduled deep-down bug scrubs of the entire system. NetShield handles myriad compressed and archive file types with ease, making it possible to clean known viruses even from zipped-up file stores. Infected files can be automatically cleaned, quarantined, or deleted. NetShield's powerful central management console gives you comprehensive control over protected servers from any server or workstation. Enterprise-wide, all monitoring and configuration functions can be performed from the convenience of a single console. The result is comprehensive yet unobtrusive protection for every file server on the network.
At the end of the day, all the bells and whistles in the world won't stop a virus, if the anti-virus solution can't detect and clean known viruses. All the McAfee VirusScan
