SOPHOS has released Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage Systems, a product that defends Network Appliance networked storage solutions. It allows system administrators to safeguard stored data from the latest viruses, worms, trojan horses and spyware.
Flexible configuration options allow administrators to tailor the product to their network infrastructure requirements. By protecting the stored data with scheduled or constant real time scanning and by using proactive detection technology, business data is secured from viruses and other malicious software.
It safeguards data at the storage level, rather than the user level to ensure a higher level of network security and overall performance. Updates for the solution are generated automatically, significantly reducing the load on IT administrators.
Sophos can protect all NetApp storage systems running Data the Ontap 6.5 operating system. Running from a connected Windows NT/XP/2000/2003 computer, Sophos Anti-Virus for NetApp Storage Systems can administer the scanning of files remotely.
