Software provider Collax is offering Kaspersky Lab’s anti-virus engine as an optional module for the Collax Business Server.
Available immediately, Collax Virus Protection will protect the Collax Business Server’s web, mail and file servers from all kinds of malware such as viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, porn ware, adware and diallers.
The anti-virus engine repairs or deletes infected objects, or moves suspicious objects to a quarantine folder for further analysis. All web traffic is checked for viruses in real time. This applies to opening web page pictures, as well as file downloads from the internet. The protection offered to the file server includes checking file systems, removable drives and individual files for malware. Virus signatures are updated on request or according to a pre-set schedule; the Kaspersky databases are updated hourly.
The module is based on an annual subscription pricing system that covers signature updates (and updates to the anti-virus engine itself) and is determined by company size. Six graded versions are available.
For companies with 10 monitor workstations, Collax Virus Protection will cost £256 per year; the price for up to 25 users is £553; for up to 50 users £830; for up to 100 users £1,484 and for up to 250 workstations £3,115. The price for companies with over 250 users is available on request
A customer who decides to conclude a three-year contract at the outset will pay double the price of a one-year contract - a saving of 33% when compared with the annual subscription.
