Stop viruses before they get in.

Deflect damaging and malicious content at the gateway using dual, individual virus engines that operate in parallel. This allows content to be scanned and blocked before it has a chance to enter the network and test the defenses of the workstations and servers directly, greatly reducing the chance of infection.

 

Descriptions & Screenshots Antivirus Scanning

Viruses remain a problem even with the latest in desktop defense. By stopping this malicious content before it enters the network, administrators can use Astaro to prevent viruses from draining productivity, damaging data on servers and workstations, and causing embarrassment to the company from infected machines spreading the virus to business contacts.

Astaro’s dual-scanning system allows for files, messages, and website objects to be scanned twice with different engines, increasing the effectiveness vs. a single scanner. All companies have varying response times to the latest threats, and even a period of a few minutes of ineffective pattern awareness can cause serious damage to your network. By having parallel scanners, this risk is further reduced.

Protected by Astaro Antivirus, users that encounter viruses while surfing and downloading files get a detailed block page informing them why the block has happened, so they do not get confused or need to create an IT support ticket for why a website or download “isn’t working”. Mail messages with viruses can be quarantined for review or deleted outright, while built-in reports show you the effectiveness of Astaro’s Antivirus solution.
