Keep networks and data safe with minimal system impact

Keep your network clean and maximize IT efficiency without draining resources. File Security provides on-demand and on-access protection from known and emerging viruses, Trojans, spyware, rootkits and other threats. And, it not only detects and cleans malware that targets Linux, BSD and Solaris OS, it identifies and eliminates Windows and Mac malware as well.

Built to run fast and light, this solution saves money in the long run by extending the life of servers without sacrificing performance or security. In addition, the Linux-compatible Remote Administrator lets you run and review your overall security from a single console to save time and reduce IT demands.
