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 SMTP. WebShield SMTP is designed to scan SMTP mail for viruses and other malicious code. WebShield SMTP scans all inbound and outbound email traffic passing through the SMTP email gateway. The scanning process works seamlessly, thereby making it "transparent" to network end-users. WebShield SMTP may be set up to automatically clean or quarantine a file and immediately alert system administrators upon detection of a virus. WebShield SMTP also features content filtering to stop specific virus hoaxes, Outbreak Manager to automatically monitor your servers for virus outbreaks, and a complete history log, or audit trail, to track the virus' origin.

WebShield SMTP is a firewall-independent scanner that easily plugs into virtually any existing network. This is accomplished by implementing a gateway virus scanner that essentially acts like your existing SMTP gateway - the difference being that this gateway contains a world leading virus scanning technology from McAfee. Now SMTP traffic can be scanned without impacting other performance critical systems such as firewalls or mail servers.
