Everyone knows a company needs multi-tiered defense in order to fend off Internet virus threats. You probably have anti-virus protection in place at the desktop and groupware levels - maybe at the file server and Internet gateway, as well. But what are you doing about the increasing number of personal digital assistants (PDAs) connecting to your network every day? Each time a portable device connects to your network, it's almost like a floppy disk being inserted into a computer - you don't know where it's been or what infections it might carry. As increasing numbers of users see the value of a device that can pack almost as much computing power as a desktop PC but fits in a pocket, the threat of infection through PDAs increases. McAfee VirusScan Wireless is the way to guard against that threat.

In the same way that people can be carriers of biological viruses without actually falling ill, PDAs can be carriers of computer viruses, without actually being infected themselves, and can transfer infected documents from one computer to another. However, PDAs themselves can also be infected by viruses written specifically for them. Current threats are able to delete files and data from your PDA. Future threats might be even more harmful. Wireless access to the Internet or other PDAs makes this risk even greater. When you download email wirelessly, or transfer files via infrared link, your PDA can become a carrier for viruses. As a result, it's important to have virus protection in two places: on the PDA itself, and on the synchronization link with your PC. Working on a document from a virus-infected computer at home, a user may synchronize his PDA with his home computer to work on the document a little more on the train to work. Then he synchronizes again with his desktop computer at work and sends the document to his team. This is only one of the many ways an infected document might enter the corporate network via a PDA. Sure, you might catch that infected document even without VirusScan Wireless in place. But what if your desktop protection is out of date or your end user has disabled it? If there is even the smallest hole in your defense, a virus will find it. Don't let PDAs be the weak link in your defense system.

If you have equipped your mobile users with PDAs or tools to use with PDAs, you will know that the available operating systems are almost as numerous as the devices themselves. If you purchase devices for some users, but other users purchase their own, the problem gets even worse. VirusScan Wireless takes the platform headache away with a wide range of platform coverage. PalmOS, PocketPC, Windows CE, and Symbian EPOC are all covered, giving you protection that will work on all the leading devices.

In the end, it all boils down to effective virus detection and removal. The McAfee virus-scanning engine has more independent certifications of comprehensive detection and cleaning than any other solution. Nevertheless, with more than 50, 000 viruses in existence, and 300 new ones cropping up every month, a virus security solution is only as good as its most recent update. VirusScan Wireless provides users easy access to updates at the click of a button, making the process of keeping your virus security a no-hassle proposition.
