Technology: Virus Prevention
This white paper examines the case for choosing a Linux-based email infrastructure and offers criteria for evaluating solutions.
Immediate Protection from Virus Risks
Scalix ZeroHour AntiVirus provides added protection in those crucial early hours of large virus outbreaks, before signature-based virus protection systems have a chance to kick in.
Powered by Commtouch
Scalix ZeroHour AntiVirus utilizes Commtouch's Recurrent Pattern Detection technologies to detect and block viruses based on their outbreak patterns, long before traditional Anti-Virus products learn about new threats and update their signature databases. Rather than evaluate the content of messages, the Commtouch Detection Center analyzes large volumes of Internet traffic in real-time, recognizing and protecting against new virus outbreaks the moment they emerge.
Database Update not required
Signature-less proactive Internet scanning provides real time virus blocking by identifying massive virus outbreaks as soon as they emerge.
Additional Line of Defense
Scalix ZeroHour AntiVirus does not replace your current Anti-Virus product, as it does not protect you from a single-sender, single-recipient directed virus attack. It provides for an additional line of defense, in particular where signature-based solutions are not ready to step-in yet. Multi-Layer protection for your most valuable business assets.
Benefits of Scalix ZeroHour AntiVirus
