Intego Updates Server-Side Virus Protection

January 9, 2009 in Mac OSX (F)

[] Austin, TX - Intego, the Macintosh security specialist, today announced the release of VirusBarrier Server 2 and VirusBarrier Mail Gateway 2, two programs that provide full protection from all known Macintosh viruses on servers running Mac OS X. Based on Intego's acclaimed VirusBarrier X5 software, that Macworld calls "the gold standard", these new versions offer a host of new features and improvements to make virus protection on Mac OS X servers more efficient and easier to manage.

VirusBarrier Server 2 automatically scans every file that is copied to a Mac OS X server where it is installed, as well as any files that are launched on the server. If viruses are found, infected files are quarantined, and logs can be sent to administrators alerting them of this activity. VirusBarrier Server 2 can also be set to run scheduled scans of both local and network volumes.

In addition to the features offered by VirusBarrier Server 2, VirusBarrier Mail Gateway 2 offers full protection for all e-mail that is sent or received via Mac OS X Server's built-in e-mail server. It automatically scans all e-mail messages that pass through the server, checking e-mails for infected attachments. If viruses are found, the e-mails are quarantined, and logs can be sent to administrators informing them of this activity.

"Not only are desktop and laptop Macs becoming more common in the enterprise and educational institutions, but more and more professionals are adopting servers running Mac OS X," said Laurent Marteau, CEO of Intego. "Businesses and schools need reliable virus protection on all their servers and Intego VirusBarrier Server 2 and VirusBarrier Mail Gateway 2 are essential tools for protecting networks of all sizes from the spread of viruses."

* GUI administration console
* Manual, Real-Time and command-line virus scanners
