Moscow, Russia, February 02, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Dr.Web Enterprise Suite is a client-server application capable of protecting a company of any size: from small companies to enterprises with dozens of thousands of workstations in their networks. The product incorporates three basic components: the anti-virus server, the anti-virus agent and the administrator management console.
Dr.Web Enterprise Suite performs the following tasks in a protected network:
a) centralized (staff members are not involved in the routine) installation of anti-virus packages b) protected computers (workstations and servers of a local area network);
c) centralized configuration of anti-virus packages;
d) centralized update of virus databases and program components for protected workstations;
e) monitoring of virus events and current status of anti-virus packages and operating systems on all computers connected to the server.
An anti-virus network administrator manages tasks performed to protect information resources of a company; that's why users do not need to install, configure and update system components - the software management routines can be performed by one person.
As usual Dr. Web Enterprise Suite server is available for several platforms, it can be installed on a computer running Unix as well as on a Windows machine. The new version supports a wider range of operating systems including 64-bt versions of servers, now it is also compatible with Sparc processors of SUN servers, both 32- and 64-bit architecture. The new version also supports IPv6 protocol.
The new version has been optimized for more efficient use of server CPU and memory resources. Protocols used for communication between servers in a multi-server anti-virus network have been modified and optimized.
To make it more convenient for an administrator the console distribution is supplied separately from the basic package which makes the distribution smaller and easier to install. The console also supports a wide range of OS.
The following changes have been done to Dr.Web Enterprise Suite 4.44 agent:
a) installation configuration tools and the program interface have been improved
b) support of Windows Vista has been added
c) now the program features a spam-filter powered by VadeRetro technology that has already been successfully implemented in products from Dr.Web for Windows workstations and Unix mail servers families;
d) origins Tracing, non-signature technology used to search for unknown viruses has been added to traditional signature scan and heuristic analysis. Malicious objects detected using the new technology get ".Origin" extension to their file names. The new technology significantly improves detection of unknown malicious program.
e) the scanner that uses GUI also includes an additional driver - Dr.Web Shield - designed to counteract rootkits. The driver is launched automatically as the scanner is started on a workstation (the agent);
f) now workstations support mobile protection mode. Agents disconnected from the anti-virus server may receive updates from Dr.Web Global Updates System. It can be useful for employees who often leave their offices for a business trip;
g) now one can use environment variables to configure components of the anti-virus.
