Anti-virus applications are a must have for any computer connected to the Internet. Although being online means one has better access to various resources, users are also exposed to all sorts of threats. Faronics Anti-Virus provides its users with viable protection against most types of malware, including viruses, trojans, and spyware.
The program is built around a client-server architecture that allows it to drastically reduce resource usage on the target machine. In essence, the Faronics Core Server provides all the resources needed for scans and active protection, while target stations are free to commit memory and CPU to other worthwhile endeavors.
The security suite guards against most common threats and can also perform Anti-Rootkit protection tasks, as well as web filtering; a built-in firewall is also included for added security. Among the several layers of detection employed by the tool, one finds heuristics and behavioral analysis, as well as signature detection.
Scans can be run on-the-spot and the application also supports scheduled tasks. Target workstations can be woken up before scans are launched and the program can monitor any computers that come online and automatically issue scan commands.
Once threats have been detected, a special “Alerts” tab can be employed to display all the issues found. Reports can also be generated and TXT or CSV outputs can be created with the source data.
All things considered, Faronics Anti-Virus is a detailed security solution for organizations and companies running multiple computers in a closed networked environment. The tool features a resource-efficient client-server architecture and can protect against most threats with its built-in firewall, as well as quarantine and clean infected items.
