System Req.

Avira Server Security shields your network¿s central receiving and distributing points against security breaches. Whether you need to protect a single central file server, or a mix of Windows or Unix servers across multiple sites, choose Avira and consider it done. Avira Server Security scans files and archives in real time, using minimal processing power. Automatic updates ensure the best possible protection at all times. The Avira Management Console allows you to scan or troubleshoot your servers right from your desktop.

Optimum protection against malware

  • IPv6 protocol, the emerging standard for internet addresses, is fully supported. Avira protects you in today¿s online world¿and tomorrow¿s too.
  • Advanced heuristics detect and ward off unknown or rapidly changing attackers.
  • Every file access is monitored through an integrated on-access scanner as well as an on-demand scanner for manual and time-driven search runs.
  • Behaviour-based detection technology repels potential malware attacks immediately. (Windows)
  • Password protection options prevent unauthorized server access. (Windows)
  • Scanning capabilities include offline virtual machine images and automatic archive detection (ZIP, RAR, GZIP, ARJ, LZH, LHA, ACE, etc.). Archive types to be scanned and recursion depth are configurable.

Efficient configuration and administration
  • The Avira Management Console facilitates network-wide administration from a single control panel.
  • An integrated scheduler automates network-wide tasks such as tests and updates.
  • Quarantine management functionality isolates and organizes infected and suspicious files so they can be handled according to the administrator¿s discretion. (Windows)
  • Server load is minimized thanks to small, bandwidth-saving updates of program and virus detection databases.
  • Comprehensive notification and reporting functions allow administrators to identify network vulnerabilities quickly and respond immediately to problems.
  • RPM package management support helps simplify installation and administration, saving even more time and resources. (Unix)
  • SNMP trap support allows security-related processes to be sent within the system. Automatic product updates can be triggered via the Avira Management Console, thus ensuring that the latest version is always installed (Unix).
