McAfee VirusScan for Linux offers continuous on-access scanning for superior protection from the growing number of viruses, worms, and other malicious code targeting Linux systems. Designed for the realities of today's fast-moving, highly adaptive businesses, McAfee LinuxShield is easily scalable, updates automatically, and can be centrally managed from a single console.
Always-on, on-access anti-virus protection
LinuxShield is one of the few products that provides continuous, on-access anti-virus protection for Linux against viruses and other threats, greatly increasing its effectiveness.
McAfee scanning technology includes heuristic scanning, which uses behavior-based rules to identify and block new viruses without needing to first download a patch.
While other anti-virus products are fooled by viruses hidden within archived files, the LinuxShield archive scanning function detects and blocks such threats providing a more complete anti-virus protection for Linux.
Automatic updating LinuxShield automates the update process, freeing up IT resources and ensuring the most current updates are always in place; updates are behind-the-scenes and don't require a server restart.
Antivirus protection against Windows viruses
LinuxShield's anti-virus protection for Linux was designed to meet real-world needs, including heterogeneous system environments; the superior anti-virus protection of LinuxShield is effective against Microsoft Windows viruses that try to pass through the Linux system.
Enterprise management and reporting
The highly flexible protection of LinuxShield can be centrally managed from a single console with ePolicy Orchestrator - one of the only truly scalable security policy management tools - for policy management and detailed graphical reporting of coverage and infection status.
