Claims to offer reactive and proactive technologies to offer protection in real-time
AVG Technologies has released small business security products Internet Security Business Edition 9.0 and Anti-Virus Business Edition 9.0.
The company said that its small business offerings combines anti-virus/anti-spyware scanner that employs new technology and marks files as safe or potentially unsafe during its initial scan, and ignores them in future scans unless the file structure changes. The new offering combines both reactive and proactive technologies to offer optimised protection in real-time.
The AVG Internet Security offerings is the integration between the resident shield, firewall, and data protection modules, enabling modules to share malware information, increasing AVG’s ability to detect and remove most malicious types of malware, rootkits, and other threats for which signatures have not yet been issued, the company said.
According to the company, the AVG 9.0 incorporates cloning technology into the deployment process, simplifying and shortening installation time, and new system tools that enable administrators to customise the way it works to protect the network. The new update manager makes sure the business is always protected against the latest threats automatically, and the new Linux-based rescue CD restores the network in the event an existing infection renders systems unbootable.
The new Internet Security Business Edition 9.0 includes data protection functionality, which recognises anomalies and blocks malicious processes in the business network. The new functionality in Identity Protection (IDP) will catch malicious software trying to hijack a system before it is able to cause any damage.
The Anti-Virus Business Edition 9.0 comes with a new client email scanner that cleans the email system of harmful message attachments and dangerous links; anti-spam filter that prevents phishers, scammers, and spammers from clogging workstations and mail servers; and web shielding technology that minimises the risk of virus and other rogue software infections when downloading and exchanging files, AVG said.
