Product Details

Viruses such as "I Love You" and "Melissa" propagated via email at an unprecedented rate, making a trend in virus distribution that forced IT departments to find cost effective ways of dealing with email-borne viruses and outbreaks. The only way to stop many of today's costly Internet-borne viruses is through extremely high levels of compliance with a strictly defined anti-virus security policy. Internet Gateway protection is a key component of the overall anti-virus policy solution and it is particularly important in enforcing your anti-virus policy. Scanning for viruses should be performed at the Internet Gateway where a virus can be stopped before entry into the network, minimizing any damage to business critical systems.

To stop the destructive path of all types of viruses, McAfee created WebShield for Solaris. It is one of the first virus security products to leverage firewall architecture and FTP, HTTP and SMTP scanning for viruses and other malicious code. The scanning process works seamlessly, thereby making it "transparent" to network end-users. WebShield for Solaris may be set up to automatically clean or quarantine a file and immediately alert system administrators upon detection of a virus. By leveraging the award-winning Gauntlet Firewall and VirusScan technologies, McAfee has developed the most secure and fastest gateway scanner for Solaris systems.

WebShield for Solaris is a firewall-independent scanner that easily plugs into existing networks. This is accomplished by implementing a gateway virus scanner that essentially acts like a router. The difference is that this router contains a world leading virus-scanning technology from McAfee. Now FTP, HTTP and SMTP traffic can be scanned without impacting other performance critical systems.

WebShield for Solaris only scans those protocols known to warrant virus security, thereby increasing performance. The default installation allows you to start scanning FTP, HTTP and SMTP ports immediately and effortlessly, with other traffic passing unimpeded. Since WebShield is installed inside your firewall as a stand-alone-system, and can stand up to very heavy loads, it is an extremely high-performance product providing you with rock-solid protection at the perimeter of your networks.
