Simple deployment

Does not require lengthy configuration before it can be used.

Low system requirements

Operates reliably on any mail server hardware.

Maximum license flexibility

Includes only the most essential protection components — there’s no need to pay for elements or even entire software solutions that will never be used.

Excellent scalability

Dr.Web for Unix mail servers can meet the demands of both companies using one mail server and companies that are multi-national telecom providers with an unlimited need to scan mail traffic.

  • Huge volumes of data can be processed in real time.
  • Multi-threaded scanning ensures a rapid system response. Messages are scanned in real time at the same time previously received files are being processed. This makes it possible to deliver emails to users almost instantly.
  • Dynamic load balancing optimises server performance, without any need for additional manual testing.
  • The configuration-testing and service-control interface enables operating rules to be changed on the fly, which significantly simplifies system maintenance and allows the system to be deployed faster.
  • The settings for the filtering services and the quarantine can be stored in a wide range of storage types—from ordinary files to databases like Oracle. LDAP-supported services are integrated with the directory service used to store settings, making it easier to administer the solution.

Flexible configuration

  • Unlike its competitors, Dr.Web uses rules rather than static configuration-file parameters. Rules are added into the daemon’s configuration file — this is one of the software’s most useful features. The rules make it possible to change the operational parameters of the mail daemon depending on the contents of the messages being processed. The user can configure rules for sender and recipient email addresses and for particular types of malicious objects found in messages.
  • Messages are filtered and modified according to established policies.
  • The administrator can configure individual processing rules for different users and groups, and even for each email message.
  • The configuration testing and service control interface allows changes to be made almost on the fly, which significantly simplifies system maintenance and allows the system to be deployed faster.
  • The settings for the filtering services and the quarantine can be stored in a wide range of storage types—from ordinary files to databases.
  • LDAP directory services are used to store settings. This ensures the solution is integrated into the structure of the corporate directories service and makes administering the solution significantly easier.

All of this allows Dr.Web to meet the information security requirements of any company.

Protection of confidential information

The product’s quarantine and message backup feature let users recover messages they accidentally deleted from their mailboxes as well as conduct investigations related to information leaks and analyse the ways in which a virus epidemic is spreading. This is possible because the quarantine can be managed via both the web interface and a special utility and because the option exists to archive all emails.

Guaranteed email delivery

Even if a user is unavailable for a long period of time and cannot receive messages, their messages will be stored in a special directory where they can be accessed at any time. This makes it easier to configure a mail server and lets users avoid having to purchase special products for these purposes.

Efficient filtering of unsolicited emails

Dr.Web anti-spam is delivered as part of a single solution (not as a separate product) and is installed with a virus-filtering product on the same server. This simplifies administration and ensures that overall costs are lower than they would be if buying our competitors' solutions.

  • Requires no training. Starts protecting as soon as it is installed.
  • Successfully identifies spam messages in any language.
  • Actions can be customised for different categories of spam.
  • Record-low number of false positives.
  • Uses its own blacklists and whitelists. This makes it impossible for anyone to discredit companies by deliberately adding them to lists of unwanted addresses.
