If you surf the web, receive e-mail, download files, or copy them from a diskette or server, you are at the highest risk of viruses. The first choice in Macintosh anti-virus software, Virex shields you from all downloaded viruses with its Universal Scan-At-Download feature. One click scans Zip archives, files compressed by StuffIt Deluxe, Compact Pro and more. Virex even catches viruses hidden in e-mail attachments. If you do download an infected file, Virex will alert you and quickly repair the file without launching other applications, saving valuable time. Virex is easy to configure and use. It allows you to perform scheduled scanning, as well as instantaneous scanning with the Virex Contextual Menu Plug-In. With Virex's DropScan, you simply drag-and-drop what you want to scan, without launching new applications. And the Virex Control Strip Module puts everything right at your fingertips. Virex also includes context-sensitive help and an informative virus encyclopedia.
As a virus spreads throughout your enterprise, the costs to your organization grow exponentially - especially when customers are exposed. Virex helps you detect, clean and remove viruses and malicious code attacks at the furthest reaches of your network environment - the end-user desktops. This comprehensive solution for Macintosh lowers your costs, continues your secure information flow, and allows your technical staff to focus on their primary work tasks.
Virex diagnoses viruses, Trojan horses and other malicious code using a range of sophisticated methods. With Virex, users can scan volumes, files and folders manually, and provide detailed reports of what it finds. They can diagnose data using the "Drag and Drop" method, for a quick scan and repair of individual items. Virex DropScan and the Virex Control Strip module make instant scanning even easier. And the SnapShot feature analyzes file for characteristics of a potentially dangerous unknown infector. You can even set the Diagnose and Startup preferences to provide more or less scanning information during diagnosis. Regular Virex Definition Updates keep your version of Virex as powerful and up-to-date as when you first purchased it.
Once Virex has detected an infector, it eliminates the threat by completely removing the virus programming code from the file, or, in the case of a Trojan horse, deleting the offending file. If the virus has already damaged a file, Virex does its best to return the file to working condition. Like the Diagnose feature, the Repair Preferences are fully configurable, letting you decide how much user interaction Virex should allow in its elimination of viruses.
The Virex Control Panel provides continuous protection from viruses and Trojan horses by detecting and removing them before they infect your Macintosh. It acts as a silent sentinel, scanning files before they are opened and floppy disks as they are inserted, catching the infectors before they have a chance to run, and eliminating them as a threat to your system's integrity. Virex uses lightning-fast SpeedScan technology for constant non-intrusive surveillance, and also provides SnapShot protection against new and unknown viruses. And the latest Virus Definition updates ensure that the Control Panel's first line of defense has the latest tools for protecting your data.
