Command Antivirus™ For Microsoft® Exchange Debuts, Meeting the Challenges of Today's New Generation of Viruses

E-Mail Viruses Like Melissa Pose No Threat to the Detection and Disinfection Power of Command AntiVirus™ for Microsoft® Exchange

4/5, 1999

JUPITER, FL (PR NEWSWIRE) -- Command Software Systems, Inc. introduces Command AntiVirus™ for Microsoft® Exchange, the industry's strongest defense for companies operating in Microsoft Exchange environments, where ease of sharing information can also facilitate virus distribution. Providing real-time virus protection for e-mail and groupware, Command AntiVirus for Microsoft Exchange secures all virus entry points, stopping viruses before they can infiltrate companies and be sent out to others.

New e-mail viruses like Melissa that have recently emerged and caused major companies to completely shut down their e-mail systems, have proven to be no match for the detection and disinfection power of Command AntiVirus for Microsoft Exchange. Driven by the legendary F-PROT® Professional engine and featuring our HoloCheck™ scanning technology, Command AntiVirus for Microsoft Exchange offers on-access scanning of e-mails and attachments; on-access, scheduled and on-demand scanning of public folders and mailboxes; and automatic disinfection of infected attachments.

Network administrators are assured of having complete control of their operations. Command AntiVirus for Microsoft Exchange provides configurable scanning; flexible scheduling of scan tasks; full control of which items are scanned and excluded; a full range of options for action on infection; and automatic updating of the latest virus signatures for up-to-the-minute virus protection. Plus, administrators can easily customize their notification systems.

"Increasing the detection and disinfection capabilities of our anti-virus software is what keeps our products ahead of the game," said Command Software Chairman and CEO, Dyan Dyer. "For example, when Melissa was first introduced in-the-wild, our software detected it immediately and would not allow our customers to open the infected file. Our customers were protected even before anyone knew what Melissa was. And we posted a fix for Melissa within a few short hours of its detection," she continued.

Command AntiVirus has been independently tested by West Coast Labs and has been awarded Checkmark Level One certification for 100% in-the-wild virus detection and Checkmark Level Two certification for 100% in-the-wild virus disinfection. Command AntiVirus has also earned certifications from Virus Bulletin, Novell and ICSA.
