VirusBarrier for servers
Intego today announced the release of VirusBarrier Server and VirusBarrier Mail Gateway, two new programs that provide total protection from all known Macintosh viruses on computers running Mac OS X Server. The two solutions allow network administrators to fully protect their Mac networks from viruses, protecting all files on a server and providing full protection from viruses that transit through Mac OS X Server’s built-in e-mail server, the company said. Both applications are Universal Binaries, fully compatible with both PowerPC and Intel processors, running native on Apple’s new Intel-based Macs. Both feature a GUI admin console, full quarantine to isolate infected files, detailed logs, self-protection to ensure that software itself is not infected, scheduled scans of local/network volumes, and heuristic and behavioral analysis, and more. Intego said it would announce availability and pricing in the fourth quarter of this year.
VirusBarrier Server automatically scans every file that is copied to a Mac OS X Server computer 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 can also be set to run scheduled scans of both local and network volumes. VirusBarrier Server will run on Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher.
VirusBarrier Mail Gateway 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 and 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. VirusBarrier Mail Gateway will run on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or higher.
