Kaspersky Mail Gateway - Integrated protection against malicious programs - Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux Mail Gateway can be installed on a separate server and does not require integration into the existing mail system. The application significantly increases the level of protection against today's computer threats, making it possible to combine different vendors' antivirus solutions on the same network. It also protects the corporate mail server from unauthorized use.
Because it is designed to operate autonomously, the application fits neatly into any environment and combines easily with other vendors' programs installed on other network nodes. Its installation and configuration do not require extensive experience with Linux systems.
The program scans for and removes all types of viruses, and malicious and potentially hostile programs in all elements of incoming and outgoing email messages, including attachments.
If a suspicious or infected object is detected, the system administrator, sender and recipient of the message receive a notice, the contents and format of which are defined by the system's administrator.
Infected and suspicious objects can be moved to a quarantine folder, where the administrator can view or delete them, or forward them to the end user.
Infected messages can be backed up before antivirus processing, making it possible to restore important information if disinfection results in error.
By attachment type
The application can be configured to filter mail
traffic by attachment name and file type, helping to immediately identify objects that are likely to contain viruses.
By user group
The administrator can define separate message processing rules for each group of mail system users by defining limitations in accordance with the security policy and employee needs.
Protection of the server against unauthorized access
The application can be configured to prevent DoS attacks and third party attempts to use the server for launching unauthorized mass mailings. In some cases, this helps reduce the server load and increase the processing speed of mail traffic.
Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Linux Mail Gateway can be managed remotely using a web interface, as well as traditionally, using the configuration file.
Configuration and optimization of the application
Depending upon mail traffic volume and the stringency of the company's security policy, the administrator can change the application's operating parameters, from maximum system performance to maximum user protection. The administrator can also configure various timeouts for sending and/or receiving messages, manage the application's queue and limit the number of objects that can be scanned simultaneously in the background mode.
Configuration of updates
Threat signatures and program modules can be updated on demand or automatically according to a predefined schedule from Kaspersky Lab servers
on the Internet or from local servers specified by the system administrator.
