Microsoft Exchange Servers Antivirus | Anti-Malware Protection | Kaspersky Lab US
Email is one of the main channels used by spam and malware to penetrate your network – so it is essential that an effective mail server security solution is in place. The new Kaspersky Security for Microsoft Exchange ensures world-class anti-malware and anti-spam protection for your Microsoft Exchange mail servers thanks to a new, powerful antivirus engine, comprehensive antivirus scanning of messages and intelligent spam detection. As a result, your mail servers, and also your corporate network, stay malware- and spam-free while maximizing business productivity.
- Powerful Antivirus Engine
A powerful engine combines increased scanning speed with reduced system resource consumption.
- High Performance:
The engine ensures increased performance and stability with minimum memory requirements.
- Complete Protection:
The application offers complete protection of Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.
- Database Availability Group support:
The application provides full compatibility and works smoothly with the DAG mechanism introduced in MS Exchange Server 2010.
- Flexible Settings:
Kaspersky Security for Microsoft Exchange Servers offers flexible, user-friendly settings to ensure anti-spam and anti-malware protection that meets your business security goals.
- Multi-language Support:
The application carries out anti-spam scanning of messages written in different languages, including Asian language sets.
- New anti-spam engine:
Delivers improved detection rate and performance.
- Intelligent Spam Recognition Technologies:
The application scans all messages for spam based on the sender’s email and IP address, the size of message and message header. The content of messages and attachments is analyzed using intelligent technologies including unique graphical signatures that detect image-based spam.
- Additional message scanning:
For additional protection against spam, messages are scanned using DNSBL lists of spammer addresses and SURBL technology which detects spammer URLs in messages.
- KSN integration for anti-spam:
Increases spam detection rate thanks to integration with Kaspersky Lab’s cloud-based threat identification engine (KSN).
- Message Classification:
Separate processing rules can be configured for each category of unsolicited mail to prevent any loss of information. For instance, messages that are known to be spam can be blocked; suspicious mail can be directed straight to the Junk Mail folder; and formal messages such as message delivery and ‘message read’ confirmations can go directly to the Inbox.
- White- and blacklists:
There is a facility for administrators to create trusted (white) and blacklists based on the sender’s SMTP or IP address. A whitelist can also be created using the recipient’s SMTP address. Any message received from a whitelisted sender is not scanned and is delivered straight to the recipient. However, if the address is blacklisted, the message will be tagged with a special heading and processed according to the rules configured by the administrator.
- Real-time Scanning:
The solution detects and removes all types of viruses, worms, Trojans and other malicious objects from the stream of incoming and outgoing messages, including attachments in almost any format. It detects and removes not only known malware but also potentially dangerous programs.
- On-demand and on-schedule background scanning:
All folders and messages stored on the server are subject to background scanning to ensure that all objects are processed using the latest version of the antivirus databases. This has minimal impact on server load.
- Backup Copying:
Before deleting messages, the application makes backup copies so that it is possible to restore important information if attempts to remove malicious objects fail or if a message is incorrectly categorized as spam. A wide range of search parameters make it easier to find objects in the backup storage area.
- Customized Configuration:
The application can be configured based on your company’s IT security policy and hardware capabilities. For example, certain file types can be excluded from scanning or the spam intensity level can be configured. There is also an option to configure antivirus and anti-spam processing scenarios for different message categories, create white- and blacklists of sender or recipient addresses etc.
- New! Import/export of configurations:
Reduces deployment time:
- to multiple servers by enabling administrators to setup one server and then export and import that configuration to other servers;
- to branch offices.
- Enables the administrator to create back-up copies of configurations.
- Centralized management of protected Exchange clusters (including DAG):
Reduces administration time by enabling administrators to manage all Kaspersky Security for Microsoft Exchange agents in DAG from a single point.
- Centralized reporting for protected Exchange clusters (including DAG):
Reduces administration time by aggregating events from all servers in DAG at a single point.
- Centralized backup of protected Exchange clusters (including DAG):
Reduces administration time by enabling administrator to manage backups from all Kaspersky Security Servers in DAG as a single, consolidated instance.
- Database updates:
Updates to antivirus databases are available on demand or can be completed automatically according to a schedule. The administrator can either download updates directly from the Kaspersky Lab website or from a local server. If required, antivirus and spam recognition databases can be updated separately.
- Convenient Administration:
The administrative interface is based on the popular Microsoft Management Console with the option of remote administration.
Reduces administration time by enabling administrators to monitor all key indicators such as protection status, database status etc. from a single screen in real time.
- Detailed Reports:
Administrators can monitor the operation of the application and the antivirus protection status using detailed HTML reports or by viewing the Windows event log. There is complete control over the frequency with which reports are generated and which information is included in them. All reports can be stored on the hard drive or sent via email.
- Sophisticated Notification System:
Administrators can receive notifications of any critical events in the application’s operation, either by email or by viewing the Windows event log.
- The hardware requirements for Kaspersky Security for Microsoft Exchange are identical to the requirements of Microsoft Exchange Server. The amount of disk space required depends on the application settings and its mode of operation.
