Always-on antivirus protection and on-demand scanning
The product scans every file that is launched or modified, treats or deletes any suspicious objects, and/or quarantines them for further analysis.
Proactive protection from malware:
The new antivirus engine incorporates advanced anti-malware protection methods such as a heuristic analyzer capable of identifying malicious programs with a very high degree of accuracy.
Any suspicious objects that are detected are placed into quarantine. If the product performs any actions on an infected object, an unmodified copy is first placed into backup storage.
Flexible scan settings
The file scan settings enable the administrator to: exempt certain processes from scanning; set the depth of antivirus protection; specify which file types must always be scanned and which should be exempted completely, etc. This approach helps optimize the server load and ensures the flexible management of corporate network security.
Selection of trusted processes
The administrator can exempt secure processes such as data backups from scanning if their performance is affected by the scanning process.
Support of Hierarchical Storage Management (HSM)
The product is compatible with disk storage management systems (Hierarchical Storage Management) and provides effective antivirus protection for file systems with complex hierarchies.
Support for Windows Server 2008 R2
The product is certified compatible with the new version of Windows Server 2008 R2, including Server Core and Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2.
Selection of management tools
The product can be managed either directly or remotely via the Microsoft Management Console, the Kaspersky Security Center, or by using the command line. The console provides graphical reports on the protection status of the EMC Celerra / VNX equipment.
Centralized installation and management
Kaspersky Security Center is a centralized management tool that supports the remote installation and configuration of the product, as well as helping to manage its operation and to receive updates and notifications.
Control over administrator privileges
The product enables various privilege levels to be assigned to each server’s administrator, allowing any IT department-specific or internal security requirements to be met.

Flexible reporting system
The administrator can monitor the product’s operation via graphical reports or by reviewing Microsoft Windows’ or Kaspersky Security Center event logs. The integrated search tool supports filters, allowing quick searches of large-volume logs to be undertaken.
