McAfee VirusScan for NetApp scans Network Appliance filers and provides real-time virus protection for the massive amounts of critical information that is stored and accessed by enterprise-level users. McAfee VirusScan detects virus-infected files that are being accessed, copied, read or written to and from the filer. Once McAfee VirusScan discovers infected files, it can automatically clean, delete, or even quarantine them for future analysis.
Like all McAfee anti-virus products, McAfee VirusScan for NetApp is based on the award-winning McAfee scan engine. Consistently recognized by independent testing organizations as the world's leading virus detection and cleaning technology, the engine stops viruses and malicious code threats. McAfee has an enviable track record in third-party tests for delivering effective detection and cleaning.
VirusScan for NetApp integrates with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) which provides centralized management and graphical reporting for managing and reporting anti-virus security solutions. ePO is the market-leading tool for centralized policy management of malicious threat protection.
On-access scanning protects NetApp Filer users in real-time when they are accessing files or when files are being written to the Filer. McAfee VirusScan for NetApp provides constant scanning protection, unlike traditional, on-demand or scheduled scanning approaches.
McAfee VirusScan for NetApp supports connection to more than one filer, providing IT administrators with the ability to create a scanning server farm for multiple filers, reducing administrative overhead for the scanning servers.
Configuring multiple instances of McAfee VirusScan for NetApp to support one Filer (as per Load Balancing) ensures a solid fail-over system. In the event of a hardware failure on the server which is running McAfee VirusScan for NetApp scanning of the NetApp Filer will still continue, providing uninterrupted protection.
McAfee VirusScan for NetApp allows for management and configuration to occur remotely permitting one person to manage multiple servers from one central point.
File status is cached as an initial scan of each file is performed. Clean files are not rescanned unless they get modified, ensuring optimum server performance.
The notification options enable you to react instantly to any possible virus outbreak. Any time a virus is detected, regardless of the product configuration, the administrator will receive an alert message.
