Viruses such as "I Love You" and "Nimda" propagated at an unprecedented rate, creating a trend in virus distribution that's forcing IT departments to find cost effective ways of dealing with all types of viruses and outbreaks. The only way to stop many of today's costly Internet-borne viruses is through high levels of compliance with a strictly defined anti-virus security policy. Internet Gateway protection is a key component of the overall anti-virus policy solution. Scanning for viruses should be performed at the Internet Gateway where a virus can be stopped before entry into the network, minimizing any damage to business critical systems. The McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance is an integrated solution, combining award-winning anti-virus software with enhanced hardware, delivering virus protection and cleaning in a configure-and-forget system that quickly resolves your major virus security worries. As an appliance, the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance represents an excellent solution for companies that wish to protect their networks from external virus threats, but want to avoid the time and expense of identifying, purchasing and integrating hardware, operating system and software components from separate vendors.

With the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance, McAfee is able to deliver a one-stop-shop for your company's gateway anti-virus protection. The McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance scans for viruses on SMTP, HTTP, FTP and POP3. Installed behind any firewall - the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance is firewall-independent - viruses and malware are scanned, with little or no impact on the performance of your firewall or email servers. Your network and your users are therefore protected when browsing the Web, downloading files or checking their private email boxes. Capable of scanning 30, 000 emails per hour, the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance can easily and efficiently handle your email loads, thereby providing you rock solid protection at the perimeter of your network. The McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance ensures that you know exactly what is entering and leaving your network. The Content Filtering feature scans every part of an email, thereby offering you protection against specific email threats, even before virus definitions have been produced. The content filtering also allows you to protect your users from emails containing offensive defamatory words or phrases, while protecting your organization from the potential legal issues by preventing such emails from being sent out from your organization. In addition, the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance allows you to configure different rules for inbound and outbound email traffic. As added legal protection, the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance allows you to insert independent disclaimers to all in coming and outgoing emails. The McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance can also help conserve email bandwidth by preventing users from sending or receiving specified types of attachments, emails greater than a specific size or emails with too many, or too large of attachments. By supporting the use of DNS based black hole lists, the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance enables you to block spam email from your organization, saving you valuable network resources and time wasted by users reading spam. Anti-relay prevents individuals from using your servers to relay spam email, giving you greater control and security within your network. In addition, specific spam words and phrases can be blocked using the content filtering capabilities.

Manageability is key to the success of an anti-virus product. The McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance allows you to perform all management functions remotely, but securely, from a standard Web browser. Reports can be generated through McAfee's exclusive ePolicy Orchestrator. From a single machine, multiple WebShield appliances can be administered. The WebShield e250 Appliance provides superior visibility into your virus security perimeter with detailed, comprehensive, and easy to understand logs, graphs and charts. As well as a customizable logging interface, the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance also has the ability to pass logged information to ePolicy Orchestrator for trend analysis. Virus security products are only as good as their most recent versions.

The McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance contains auto update functionality, ensuring you are always up to date with the latest Virus Definition Drivers (DAT files) and scanning engines from McAfee. Common to all anti-virus products from McAfee, the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance includes the award-winning McAfee Active Virus Defense scanning engine, regarded as a world-leading virus detection and cleaning technology. This powerful engine not only stops every type of virus and malicious code threat (including macro viruses, Internet email, trojan horses, and worms), but also stops hostile ActiveX and Java. The McAfee scanning engine is independently certified to deliver comprehensive detection and cleaning - it outperforms the majority of its competitors. Sporting the McAfee engine, the McAfee WebShield e250 Appliance also enjoys the benefits of ViruLogic. As an advanced heuristic scanning technology, ViruLogic employs both positive and negative heuristics to detect previously undiscovered viruses, with the fewest false alarms. ViruLogic's variant detection capabilities find mutations of existing viruses, and cleans them before they cause damage. Recursive decompression scanning digs viruses out of multiply zipped files, while a sophisticated decryption engine component detects advanced encrypted viruses before they can unleash their payloads. McAfee can provide the technology to deal with the speed of today's virus attacks. McAfee's support programs are essential for making the most of your investment. These programs give you the technical support necessary to ensure that your product is installed correctly and is working properly. McAfee is the leader in the anti-virus software market, having more than twice the corporate anti-virus market share than its nearest competitor, according to a 2000 IDC report.
