SonicWall provides multi-layer defense against viruses. This approach protects users from known viruses as well as new, unique outbreaks. This real-time protection uses three types of anti-virus analysis. This comprehensive approach ensures that your e-mail remains secure before, during, and after a virus outbreak.
Time Zero Anti-Virus Technology™
Most anti-virus products rely primarily on signatures to stop viruses. These signatures are based on known viruses. Relying solely on this method leaves a dangerous window between the time a virus first appears and the time a signature is developed and deployed. At the moment the outbreak occurs—"Time Zero"—a virus has the opportunity to do significant damage to your computer system. Every passing minute until a signature arrives is enough time for a virus to multiply exponentially and compromise another portion of your network.
SonicWall's breakthrough Time Zero Anti-Virus Technology provides predictive virus defense complemented with responsive techniques to stop viruses as soon as they emerge. With SonicWall Time Zero Virus Technology, e-mails potentially containing new viruses are identified and safely quarantined, while known viruses are blocked by virus signatures.
New e-mail viruses on the Internet are stopped using SonicWall's predictive techniques which perform statistical e-mail and attachment analysis, detect deceptive files, and check for MIME exploits. This approach can identify seemingly innocent files that may be harboring malicious code.
SonicWall rapidly responds to virus outbreaks by focusing on their delivery vehicle—suspicious e-mails. SonicWall applies its Self Monitoring Active Response Team (SMART) Network, an over-one-million-user, real-time network that automatically engages in detecting and thwarting new threats. E-mails identified by SonicWall SMART Network that contain dangerous attachments are immediately and safely quarantined.
SonicWall's multi-layer defense against viruses adds decisive protection through virus signatures.
SonicWall's innovative Time Zero Virus Technology is complemented with a leading anti-virus engine from McAfee. This anti-virus engine has a comprehensive set of signatures to prevent previously identified viruses from causing damage to computer systems.
McAfee is the industry leader in dependable anti-virus signatures, protecting 100 million end users. McAfee Anti-Virus Emergency Response Team (AVERT) researches and provides rapid responses to viruses.
Inbound & Outbound Protection
