Antivirus Software For Linux Available Soon

Trend Micro’s new ScanMail antivirus software for Linux users running Lotus
Domino will address up to 87 percent of the virus attacks that enter corporate
networks through e-mail.

ScanMail utilizes a multi-threaded memory scanning architecture that will enable faster performance and greater scalability across the enterprise with
minimal overhead on the Domino server.

It encompasses capabilities such as File Name and File Type
Blocking that will help administrators enforce company email policies,
increase overall server efficiency and minimize virus outbreaks by
blocking certain file types from being sent through Lotus Domino
Servers.

It also has functions that allow administrators to manage their email policy and bandwidth by setting up email filter rules. These rules can be used to block, delay, prioritize, and notify users.

Advanced statistical reports, featuring current top ten viruses will also be generated by the software to help administrators identify virus infections
throughout the enterprise environment.

ScanMail for Linux will be available in Asia, the US and Latin America on August 25. In Europe and Japan, the product will be available in late September 2002.
