Virus scanning capabilities
Scanning of desktops and file servers are enabled with the advanced technology, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator. The feature ensures that the computer system is protected from both known and unknown viruses using the auto update technology, which downloads new virus information at an hourly basis without the user’s intervention. Malicious threats, that is, mass mailer viruses that may attempt to use e-mail to get into the system are guarded against using the e-mail protection feature that extends to both MAPI and Pop-3 e-mail formats. E-mail attachments and other web content downloads are scanned for the presence of threats using the download scanner. This protects the user from downloading infected files and applications that are laced with malicious adware and spyware.
Other features of the software include active virus defense that protects the computer users from the ever evolving viruses and malware. The centralized management feature functions in the deployment of security features to other client machines from a single console.
Need to install the product
The only safe guarantee for protection against possible loss of data is by installing the application software. Identity thefts are normally facilitated by phishing websites, spyware and keyloggers. These are not easily detectable by a conventional virus program but the program uses Internet gateway protection feature that keeps them out of the network. The software uses advanced heuristics technology, which monitors the execution process in the computer system in real time. There are occasions when a virus may not be detected by the antivirus because they are constantly changing their structures. However, with the heuristic technology, any suspicious execution within the system is automatically halted before it can pose a danger to the system.
Tips to use the product efficiently and need to update it
The user needs to have access to the Internet at all times. This is because the application obtains hourly updates for its definition files to help it keep up with the changing trends of viruses and other malwares. Moreover, the user should be on the lookout for the latest upgrades from the developers to enhance the system performance. The new upgrades are normally an improvement on features and capabilities that lacked in the previous versions.
