Antivirus Protection for Linux, BSD, and Solaris

Highly available and responsive file servers are an integral part of today's business IT infrastructure. More businesses rely on Linux, BSD and Sun Solaris file servers to deliver performance and scalability to support today's file serving loads. As the volume of network data grows, so does the need to secure it from malware. ESET File Security provides Linux, BSD and Solaris file servers with on-demand and on-access real-time protection from known and unknown viruses, worms, trojans, spyware and other Internet threats. ESET's ThreatSense technology proactively protects mission-critical file servers from zero-day threats with minimal impact on system performance or resources. With ESET, IT managers do not have to choose between security and performance.
