Large corporate networks that use file servers running on different platforms can be a real headache when it comes to antivirus protection. Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux File Server provides a superior protection with Samba server integration and other features that can protect workstations and file servers in even the most complex heterogeneous networks.
The product’s architecture provides multi-layered protection for file servers in Linux / heterogeneous networks, functioning simultaneously at file system level and on the level of the SMB / CIFS data transfer protocol (Samba server). The main antivirus module – a kernel-level interceptor – protects the server file system in real-time. Protection extends to both local resources and remote resources built into the server file system that can be accessed using a variety of data transfer protocols.
A dashboard in the Web Management Console displays data on the application’s status in real-time, as well as helping to configure and manage its operation.
The antivirus engine provides server resource load balancing, optimized antivirus scanning technology and the facility to exclude trusted processes from scanning. These features increase the product’s performance and reduce the amount of system resources required to perform scans.
Reliable anti-malware protection is ensured as the application restarts automatically if it malfunctions or is forced to terminate.
The product protects any files stored on Linux / FreeBSD-based file servers regardless of whether the server is running on a physical machine or a guest virtual machine.
