Panda Software Introduces New Features In Its Antiviruses For Linux Mail Servers

Panda Software has released new versions of its antiviruses for Linux mail platforms, Sendmail, Qmail and Postfix.

Panda SendmailSecure, QmailSecure and PostfixSecure include new features that make them even more powerful and effective, without having the slightest effect on the performance of Linux servers.

These new versions also include the option to scan fragmented messages. This results in optimized server performance, as the entire e-mail message does not need to be downloaded to the computer in order to scan and disinfect it. This is particularly useful during virus epidemics, when the server can receive thousands of infected messages.

Panda SendmailSecure, QmailSecure and PostfixSecure can now detect whether a virus uses the iFRAME/MIME vulnerability exploit, which allows a new malicious code to trick the system using a false MIME header in the message. This feature blocks viruses that can run automatically when the message carrying it is viewed in the preview pane.

This new characteristic prevents the viruses that use this exploit, such as Klez.I, from spreading, by blocking them in the mail gateway. This also reduces the number of warnings users receive and prevents the mailboxes in the server from being saturated.

Panda SendmailSecure, QmailSecure and PostfixSecure can be managed through Panda Software’s new administration console, Panda AdminSecure, which centralizes installation, configuration and administration of other tasks related to these antivirus solutions in a single computer.

Panda SendmailSecure, QmailSecure and PostfixSecure can be purchased separately or as part of Panda EntepriSecure, Panda Software’s security suite for corporate networks.
