Linux, BSD, and Solaris mail server protection

E-mail is the lifeblood of today's business communications. More businesses rely on Linux, BSD and Sun Solaris mail servers to deliver performance and scalability commensurate with today's communication loads. As e-mail use and volume of exchanged information increases, companies are increasingly vulnerable to fast propagating malware that can bring business processes to a grinding halt in a matter of minutes-or worse- which create stealth attacks designed to steal passwords or sensitive data. ESET Mail Security provides Linux, BSD and Solaris mail servers with on-demand and on-access real-time protection from known and unknown viruses, worms, trojans, spyware and other Internet threats. ThreatSense technology is the heart of ESET Mail Security. It proactively protects mission-critical file servers from zero-day threats with minimal impact on system performance or resources. ThreatSense's industry leading heuristic threat detection minimizes false positives while detecting new threats as soon as they emerge. With ESET, IT managers do not have to choose between security and performance. And in most cases, there is zero latency between release of a virus and protection.

New Features

  • Latest ThreatSense Technology - ThreatSense technology Version 3.0 delivers sophisticated proactive protection and improved cleaning features.
  • Support for Remote Administrator - Compatible with ESET Remote Administrator.
  • Supported Platforms - Supported platforms now include Solaris 10, NetBSD 4, FreeBSD 5, 6 and 7, Linux Kernel 2.2, 2.4 and 2.6.
  • Supported Agents - ZMailer agent is now also supported.
  • Smaller Update Files - Core optimization reduces size of update files and improves protection against corrupted update files.
