SonicWALL Enforced Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware

Automate and enforce your anti-virus protection

Execute an innovative, multi-layered anti-virus internet security strategy, with SonicWALL™ firewalls and Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware software. You get SonicWALL Reassembly-Free Deep Packet Inspection® anti-malware at the gateway, and enforced anti-virus protection at the endpoints. You can redirect any user with a noncompliant endpoint to a web page to install the latest Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware software. Provide automatically updated security definitions to the endpoint as soon as they become available to protect against today’s rapidly evolving threats. Automate enforcement to minimize administrative overhead.

Features

Enhance security with enforced client anti-virus internet security

Layer anti-spyware software and anti-virus protection at your network’s entrances—and extend it across your network’s perimeter to stop malware from entering through laptops, thumb drives or unprotected systems—with SonicWALL™ Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware.

Stay safe with automated deployment and updates

Easily deploy, and automatically enforce and update your Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware software network-wide on Windows® devices, using a robust, intuitive policy-driven engine. Your SonicWALL firewall will redirect users to install the latest Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware software whenever a noncompliant endpoint tries to connect.

Block viruses, spyware, malware and more — inside your network and out

Stop threats inside and (for those connected via VPN) outside your network with software that is client based and maintained across the network.

Leverage premium anti-virus technology

Your SonicWALL Enforced Client Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware software includes the McAfee® anti-virus engine. You can also combine it with best-in-class server protection: McAfee's VirusScan Enterprise for Windows® servers, GroupShield for Exchange servers and NetShield for Novell servers.

Simplify your management and reporting

Generate centralized reporting on each of your computer’s operating system, past detections and more, in compliance with internal policies and external regulations. Plus, centrally manage endpoint deployments by allowing the creation and management of multiple groups and policies across your entire network.
