Antiviruses

 
UserGate Mail Server features several integrated antivirus modules from Kaspersky Lab, Panda Security, Avira and Cloud Antivirus. All of these modules are used to scan mail traffic for viruses. You can configure the modules on the corresponding page of the administrator console.
 
Prior to enabling an antivirus module, launch virus definition update and wait for the update process to complete. The antivirus page indicates if your virus definitions are up to date. You can also use this page to schedule virus definition updates.
 
Cloud-based antivirus checks messages and attachments for viruses similar to the cloud-based antispam – it sends to the server a unique message hash and matches it against the known virus signatures. For this reason, the antivirus requires no updates and starts running immediately when launched. Besides, such virus check minimizes mail server’s processing capabilities.
