EDISON deploys antivirus protection


Without adequate antivirus software it is impossible to guarantee data is protected and ensure the stable operation of computers and networks. Antivirus systems provide protection from malicious software, spam, intrusions and hacker attacks. Modern antivirus packages contain some means of constant monitoring as well as a files and connections scanner. Some of them also include anti-spam and anti-hacker modules, protection from unwanted adverts and rootkit-detection modules.

 

There are several technologies used in antivirus protection:

  1. Signature method of detection: while scanning the file or package, the antivirus system consults a directory of viruses known to the creators of the program. If it matches this or that part of a code to that of a known virus signature then a warning message appears offering the following options: delete, block file execution, or attempt to recover the file by removing the virus.
  2. Proactive technology is intended to prevent the system from getting infected, instead of searching for known malicious software.
  3. Combined packages use both proactive and signature methods of protection.

 

The antivirus software market is represented by a considerable number of solutions, which use this or that protection technology. Each of these packages appeals to its own audience. Thanks to our extensive network of business partners, EDISON is able to supply various types of antivirus protection from different developers, including market leaders.
