Today we’re pleased to announce a new release of Sophos for Microsoft SharePoint, our popular security solution for SharePoint servers. The new version provides support for Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and includes the same great features as previous versions.
Linux servers come in many flavors, from Red Hat to SUSE to Ubuntu. All share a common reputation as being largely immune from the malware problems that plague Windows. It’s no surprise, then, that many IT professionals wonder whether it’s really worth installing antivirus software on their Linux servers. As it turns out, the answer, more often than not, is yes.
One reason to consider installing Linux antivirus is that malware for Linux does, in fact, exist. It’s far less common “in the wild” than Windows malware, but rootkits like the one that targeted the SSHD daemon earlier this year demonstrate that it is a real threat. Do you want to explain to the boss that a mission-critical server got trashed because you didn’t think it was likely to get infected?
Today we’re officially announcing the release of Sophos Server Protection—a server antivirus solution that keeps your data secure without sacrificing performance. The newest member of our family of complete security products features agentless scanning with vShield, along with antivirus clients for Windows, Linux, Mac and UNIX.
Sophos Server Protection features an easy-to-use central console for managing both vShield hosts and endpoint clients from a single interface. Sophos Server Protection reduces complexity to save you time, allowing you to focus your resources on running your business, not managing security software.
Today sees the release of PureMessage for Microsoft Exchange (PME 4.0) to support Microsoft Exchange 2013. At this stage PME 4.0 is a separate download from the PME 3.1.3 version that supports Microsoft Exchange 2003, 2007 and 2010. We are planning to integrate both versions into a single install set soon.
PME 4.0 enhancements include whitelisting of attachments to exclude them from content filtering and auto-configuration of Active Directory settings on start-up.
