Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Lotus Domino

Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Lotus Domino offers cost-effective, world-class anti-malware protection for IBM Lotus Domino servers in large, complex corporate networks with heavy loads.

Because Lotus Domino servers perform tasks ranging from email to collaboration and custom applications, they can become a weak point in your network’s security. A virus entering via a simple email can easily lead to the loss of business-critical data. By scanning messages and documents automatically and effectively, Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Lotus Domino safeguards your company’s workflow from potential IT security threats.

  • Effective protection against malware

    • Real-time email scanning

      Messages, attachments (including packed and archived attachments) and OLE objects are scanned for viruses and other types of malware. Any documents in the database can also be scanned on-demand by an administrator.

    • Scanning of databases, objects and traffic during replication

      Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.0 for Lotus Domino scans for viruses in email messages, databases and OLE objects, as well as traffic sent between Lotus Domino servers during replication, ensuring the protection of the company’s entire Lotus Domino-based workflow system.

    • Protection against malware outbreaks

      If several events of the same type are detected during a defined time period, the administrator is notified about the potential threat of a malware outbreak and has the option to temporarily stop the sending and receiving of emails.

    • Backup

      Copies of infected, damaged and suspicious objects are placed in backup storage, allowing important information to be restored in the event of an object being corrupted. A wide choice of search parameters makes it simple to search for an object in backup storage.

    High performance

    • Automatic scalability

      Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Lotus Domino automatically modifies the number of scanning threads according to the volume of server traffic. The maximum number of threads can be set by the administrator.

    • Flexible architecture

      Distributed architecture enables existing profiles to be transferred easily to new servers or network nodes if the number of servers changes.

    • Cross-platform support

      On a multiplatform network (e.g. Windows and Linux), all mail servers are protected equally and work as a single entity regardless of the operating system installed on each individual server.

    • Optimized use of system resources

      Objects are scanned in the server’s operating memory without saving them to the hard disk. This allows faster scanning and reduced server loads.

    Flexible administration

    • Flexible settings and scanning exclusions

      Scanning exclusions can be set according to file type or the size of scanned objects. It is also possible to disable the scanning of attachments and OLE objects. Administrators can define additional rules for the processing of attached files.

    • Distributed management of protection parameters

      Settings are stored on all protected servers, allowing them to be saved in the event of a server failure.

    • Replication of application statistics

      Event logs and statistics are stored on all protected servers.

    • Easy-to-use installation and management tools

      Application installation and management can be performed via a web interface or the standard Lotus Notes interface. A full web interface enables the administrator to install and manage the application remotely, using any of the most popular web browsers.

    • Message tagging

      A note saying that a message has been scanned and verified virus-free can be added to outgoing messages, enhancing trust.

    • Detailed reports

      Administrators can monitor application operation and the antivirus protection status of the Lotus Domino Server with comprehensive reports, or by viewing the event log via the application interface. The content and frequency of reports can be defined by the administrator.

    • Database updates

      Database updates can be downloaded from Kaspersky Lab servers on demand, automatically or according to a preset schedule or from a local public shared folder.

    • Anti-virus engine 8.0

      Ensures stable, high performance with low impact on system resources.

    • Centralized management of server clusters

      Allows configuration profiles to be created and applied to all servers, without duplicating the settings on every server.

    • Administrator role separation

      Assigns different duties to administrators responsible for the operation of servers, making it possible to enforce internal IT security policies.

    • VMware Ready

      Protects emails and documents on IBM Lotus Domino servers installed on real and virtual (guest) operating systems.

    • Hardware requirements

      • Intel Pentium or higher and compatibles, or equivalents. 32-bit or 64-bit processors are permitted
