Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Check Point Firewall-1 provides high-quality antivirus protection for all HTTP, FTP and SMTP traffic that passes through Check Point Firewall-1. The solution detects malicious programs, spyware, adware and joke programs, etc.
Antivirus scanning of incoming and outgoing traffic. The application scans incoming and outgoing traffic for viruses, processing CVP requests from the firewall. Objects scanned include web traffic, email bodies and attachments, including compressed and archived files. The program detects not only infected objects, but also objects that can be classed as suspicious, protected or damaged.
Protection from potentially hostile programs. Administrators can choose to use either a standard or extended set of antivirus databases. This enables the program to detect not only malicious programs, but also potentially hostile software, spyware, joke programs, etc.
Excluding file types for faster scanning. It is possible to exclude archive files from scanning altogether, or to configure the program to scan only archives below a certain nesting level. The program can be configured to scan only certain types of files (file type is defined by the internal structure), which means that only objects prone to infection are scanned.
Limiting time spent on scanning each object. The administrator can set a maximum time for scanning each object to minimize any disruption to the user.
On-the-fly scanning. To increase the application’s performance, objects are scanned in RAM without saving them on the hard drive.
Intelligent algorithms. During scanning, safe objects are forwarded to the end user using intelligent algorithms that speed up the application’s operation without sacrificing detection quality.
Processing options for infected objects. Infected objects can either be deleted or treated. It is also possible to disregard the scan result — that is, to send the object to the end user without processing.
Backup copies. Before infected objects are processed (treated or deleted), it is possible to create backup copies of them. The administrator can configure backup copying for each data transfer protocol separately.
Administration and configuration
Convenient administration. The administrative interface is based on Microsoft Management Console 1.2, which is a familiar tool for most system administrators.
Scalability. The system administrator can choose to run multiple copies of the antivirus engine and multiple CVP servers (which can operate on different physical servers).
Automatic updates to antivirus databases. Updates to antivirus databases can be downloaded to workstations directly from Kaspersky Lab servers or from a folder on the local network. If updates are damaged or incomplete, it is possible to roll back antivirus databases to a previous intact version.
Sophisticated notification system. The product can send notifications to the system administrator about any critical events in the application’s operation, either using the standard tools in Check Point Firewall-1® or via email.
Improved reporting system. Flexible settings for configuring statistics and reports allow the system administrator to choose the desired detail for data collection and reports.
Free technical support. Registered users have access to Kaspersky Lab’s free technical support service by telephone or email. Technical specialists are available round-the-clock to answer questions related to the installation, configuration and use of the product in English, French, German and Russian.
