Enterprise Scanning Technology
Leverage the power and protection of a commercial-grade scan engine, while supporting the specific features of your operating system. Powertech Antivirus protects your servers from a comprehensive set of viruses, zero-day threats, ransomware, and more. You can be confident knowing that your scan engine is backed by proven technology.
The enterprise scan engine in Powertech Antivirus uses a behavior-based scan of a file’s code to identify typical traits of exploits to help you catch unknown malware before they cause damage. Even when viruses are too new to be defined, you can stay one step ahead. Heuristic analysis takes note of these malicious behaviors, reporting a possible infection when suspicious activity reaches an established threshold.
Automatic Updating and Scanning
Simplify your virus protection through automatic DAT updates, product enhancements, and system scans. Powertech Antivirus automatically updates virus definitions to provide the latest protection against current virus threats.
On-Demand or Real-Time Scanning Options
With Powertech Antivirus, you can choose to scan files dynamically as they are accessed by users and processes on the system, or schedule your scans outside of normal business hours to save processing power. Powertech Antivirus works with any commercial job scheduling solution, so you decide which directories to scan and when to scan them. Numerous performance tuning options offer additional flexibility to tailor scanning to your organization’s needs.
Visualize and Centralize Your Security
