Stand-alone, high-performance server protection


Why choose this product?
avast! File Server Security offers the most powerful protection for keeping your servers infection-free. As a first line of defense it scans all the traffic your servers can handle and is easily customized for even the most unique deployments.
Be in control
Our easy-to-navigate graphical user interface (GUI) offers a user-friendly central window to all program functions.
Integrate your SharePoint
Our SharePoint Server plug-in integrates with SharePoint 2003/2007/2010 Servers via Microsoft's own AV interfaces.
Get the info you want, when you want it
Comprehensive reporting options provide adjustable parameters for what information gets reported and how often.
Real-time alerts
In case of infection or unwanted activities, the central console receives immediate real-time alerts.

Key technology:

Antivirus and anti-spyware engine
Innovative scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents.
Heuristics engine
Proactively finds malware undetectable with normal definitions and virus signatures.
Real-time anti-rootkit protection
Prevents stealth malware (rootkits) that, when loaded by the computer's OS, are invisible to ordinary scanners.
Intelligent Scanner
Reduces the number of required file scans up to 80% through a white list of safe applications. Files identified as safe are not rescanned unless they change.
Multi-threaded scanning optimization
Allows the splitting of large files between cores, which accelerates the scanning process on new multi-core CPUs and makes avast! run even faster.
Scheduled scanning
Allows users to define the scan time and files to be scanned.
Code emulator
Uses dynamic translation (a method much faster than traditional emulation) for both generic unpacking and within the heuristics engine.
Smart virus definition updates
Incremental updating minimizes the size of regular update files.
Fast application of updates
New format for the virus definition file means faster updates and reduces demand on CPU/memory, for uninterrupted computing.
Potentially unwanted programs detection
Detects potentially unwanted programs, such as remote admin tools and commercial key loggers. Custom rules can be set for dealing with these types of programs.
SharePoint Server plug-in
Tightly integrates with SharePoint 2003/2007/2010 Servers via Microsoft's own AV interfaces.
Low resource usage
Stays light on system resources.
