How the software offers protection against viruses
The McAfee System Security secures the computer system from the ever-changing Internet virus threats by scanning the system desktop, gateway, e-mail server and downloads for the presence of threats. Viruses are detected using the heuristic detection technology that monitors the activities of applications and can, thus, detect a malicious activity before it poses a danger. The central management feature enables the coordination and deployment of policies in the client workstations with the same product. Malicious websites, i.e., phishing websites and web related threats are scanned and blocked at the Internet gateway before they can gain access to a user’s network. With the e-mail virus and spam protection, in-bound and out-bound e-mails are scanned for spam, malicious contents and viruses and are then, isolated to a separate secure folder.
With the application, one can securely protect their networks and computer system from viruses, spyware, intrusion, keyloggers and malicious content using latest virus detection technology. It does not rely on signatures to detect a virus but monitors their behaviors. This makes the application more effective in detecting evolving virus threats which try their best to avoid detection. In addition, mail servers are protected from the possibilities of harboring fraudulent mails, spam and viruses that steal valuable personal details by scanning both in-bound and out-bound mail contents, thus reducing the chances of downloading and infecting the computer with malwares.
Updating the product
The security software includes an auto update feature that enables it to access new definition files for its database. This enables it to detect new threats and figure out evolving ones. The updates are done automatically by the software on the hourly basis. Failure to update the program will result in an obsolete definition database that is in effective to fight new and existing threats.
