Symantec’s Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition 7.5

Symantec’s Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition 7.5 Provides Automated Enterprise-Wide Virus Protection

Latest component of Symantec Enterprise Security uses Digital Immune System technology for superior manageability and administration

AUCKLAND, 16 January, 2001 – Symantec New Zealand today announced Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7.5, the only product in the anti-virus market with ‘closed-loop’ automation technology to provide customers with enterprise-class protection at the desktop and file/print server levels of the corporate network. Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7.5 is a key component of Symantec Enterprise Security, a comprehensive and modular Internet security solution for enterprise computing environments.

Part of Symantec’s Digital Immune System (DIS), the exclusive ‘closed-loop’ automation technology features a sophisticated back-end infrastructure designed to provide enterprise customers with the highest levels of protection available. The DIS significantly improves system uptime through automatic, reliable, hands-free virus detection, as well as analysis and delivery of virus cures to either a single, infected PC or an entire corporation, with or without administrator intervention. New flood control capabilities also decrease bandwidth problems that occur when too many users attempt to submit infected files.

Fast Facts
Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7.5 offers:
 Exclusive ‘closed-loop’ automation technology;
 Improved uptime with automatic, reliable virus detection;
 Flood control capabilities to decrease bandwidth problems;
 Faster virus submissions, response times and increased security;
 Centralised virus alerting/forwarding for clients not managed by the central management console;
 Web-based installation and support with a software download available from an internal web server. “The increased use of the Internet and the growing adoption of a variety of related Internet technologies provides fertile ground for viruses to spread quickly and in epidemic proportions,” said Richard Batchelar, Country Manager, Symantec New Zealand. “As a key element of Symantec Enterprise Security, Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7.5 enables corporate customers to build the best, most effective, security solution for their organisation.”

Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7.5 incorporates several new features to ease administration
and manageability and ensure maximum protection:
 As part of the DIS, Internet-based Scan and Deliver now offers the ability to submit infected files to Symantec via the Internet using HTTPS, removing the reliance of an email-based submission system. Internet Scan & Deliver provides faster submissions, faster virus response time and increased security.

 Web-based installation support allows customers to point their clients at an internal Web server and download the software, thereby eliminating the need to rely on login scripts or third-party distribution tools. Support for resumable downloads eliminates the need to restart a download from the beginning if the connection is lost while downloading from an Internet Web server.

 Alert forwarding for lightly managed clients allows administrators to configure and lock-down client settings on hard-to-reach remote/laptop computers and configure centralised virus alerting for clients not managed by the central management console.

 Virus definition rollback gives administrators the option of returning to a previous set of virus definitions from a single, convenient location. Administrators can also reinitiate missed events, such as a scheduled virus scan, thereby ensuring maximum virus protection.

 Support node, an HTML viewer with a live link to Symantec Support, enables administrators to access timely service and support information without leaving their consoles.

 Symantec System Centre provides an intuitive centralised console for customers who need to protect, control and monitor their customers’ machines from a single console. Administrators are able to set and lock down policies to ensure users are fully protected at all times.

 NAVEX technology maximises system uptime and minimise total cost of ownership by creating a single common extensible scanning and repair engine across multiple tiers - including Windows 9x, Windows NT, and Windows 2000 - removing the need to reboot or re-deploy software.

Symantec’s Norton AntiVirus Corporate Edition 7.5 provides multi-tier protection for Windows 2000/9x, Windows NT/2000 workstation and server, NetWare and Windows 3.x/DOS and is now available in New Zealand .
