Introducing VirusScan Enterprise

As soon as the VirusScan Enterprise software is installed, it begins protecting your system from threats. You can increase your protection if you understand what the software does, what is new in this release, and its major components.


What it is and does

VirusScan Enterprise offers easily scalable protection, fast performance, and a mobile design to protect your environment from the following:

  • Viruses, worms and Trojan horses
  • Access point violations and exploited buffer overflows
  • Potentially unwanted code and programs

It detects threats, then takes the actions you configured to protect your environment.

You can configure the software as a standalone product or you can use McAfee® ePolicy Orchestrator® software version 4.0 and later, to manage and enforce VirusScan Enterprise policies, then use queries and dashboards to track activity and detections.

Note: This document addresses using ePolicy Orchestrator 4.0, 4.5, and 4.6. For information about using these versions of ePolicy Orchestrator, see that version’s product documentation.


What is new

This release includes the following new features:
  • Enhanced performance.
  • Allows ePolicy Orchestrator 4.5 and 4.6 to manage your VirusScan Enterprise systems.
  • A new ScriptScan URL exclusion feature allows you to configure exclusions instead of manually editing the registry.
  • The AntiSpyware Enterprise Module has been fully integrated into the VirusScan Enterprise 8.8 software.
  • Support for Outlook 2010 email scanning.
  • Support for Lotus Notes 8.0x through 8.5.1 email scanning.
