More understanding of new features

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have one question regarding on newly added features. It is about  "anti-virus and anti-phishing protection of email traffic using an Microsoft Outlook extension". How this new features works and how this new features can protect our servers? Let say our production server is not using a Microsoft Outlook and there is no client email application that install in my production server, how this features can protect my production servers? What i mean is, can elaborate to me for my better understanding in order to use this features.

HafizKnow, hi!

You need to install the Microsoft Outlook software and our Outlook plugin to use antivirus and antipshishing functionality.

Without Outlook you can't use protection functionality. Mainly we targeted to use this functionality on the terminal servers, where the Microsoft Outlook application was installed.

Can you tell me please, you use webmail in your organization or you use another mail application (not web version)?

Hi Pavel,

Let says we dont have any terminal servers in our environment. We only have AD Servers, File Servers, Mail servers, and Web servers in our production. For Mail Servers, we use an exchange servers as our main mail communication. If we install this KSWS, is it the functionality will work?

Hello.

The Outlook plugin functionality will only work if you use Outlook, predictably. This does not mean your server will not be protected then, but malicious objects will be scanned on access by resident protection of KSWS, rather that on the fly (during delivery) inside Outlook.

KSWS does not offer Exchange server protection (KL has a dedicated solution for that), but it can be installed on a host where an Exchange server is installed, and will protect its filesystem and memory.

Thank you.
