Security Plus for MDaemon complements and extends the built-in security features of the MDaemon Mail Server, providing a shield to stop security trouble before it starts.
By combining multiple powerful security safeguards, it blocks virtually all known dangers and prevents infestation by newly released threats.
Includes Real-time, antispam, zero-hour antivirus, anti-spyware, and antiphishing technology (Available for MDaemon Pro users only).
Security Plus scans messages inline, using the Kaspersky Anti Virus Engine, during each SMTP session, effectively stopping malicious software at the email entrance to your network.
I was asked by a reporter to comment on this issue so here are my comments.
There used to be a joke in security circles that the only way to secure Microsoft software was to pull the cables out of the back of a computer.
Real-time pattern analysis provides much faster protection than traditional filter and signature based solutions that require detecting, defining, and disseminating new virus information.
Outbreak Protection requires no heuristic rules, content filtering, or signature updates.
It’s slow because the upgrade process converts all existing content to an optimized storage format, so plan for an extended upgrade time.
In short, their Endpoint product released an update that was incompatible with other software trying to access the XP file system (including Symantec’s own PGP).
There now should be low to no risk of a problem because the cause was isolated and removed from the update flow. This incident may prompt some users to consider other vendors, yet Symantec is not the first anti-virus company to release an update that causes a major outage.
Our security research centers around the world provide unparalleled analysis of and protection from malware, security risks, vulnerabilities, and spam.
If you have any thoughts for how we can improve the content on these pages, please take a moment to provide some Symantec has threat response centers located throughout the world to fight bad guys continuously 24/7.
