Antivirus - eScan Features ( Page 2 )

Virus-pranksters are now using the Internet as a frictionless distribution channel for dangerous viruses and worms. Over the years, contemporary virus threats have transformed into content security threats. These comprise e-mail and web-based virus downloads, MS Word based macro bombs, offensive e-mail and web content, misuse / abuse of e-mail resources, junk mail and Spam infections, harmful Java or ActiveX applets, intrusion of anonymous Internet users and trespassing of unauthorized bodies into the company's internal network.
MicroWorld, the leader in Content Security and Communications software, has now launched "MicroWorld-WinSock Layer" (MWL), a revolutionary concept in scanning Internet traffic on a real-time basis. This new concept is set to change the manner in which Content Security threats are tackled in the knowledge world

MWL is revolutionary because unlike the other products and technologies, currently available, MWL tackles a threat before it reaches your applications. Other products deal with the threat after the applications have already processed it. Technically, MWL is placed above the WinSock layer and acts as a "Transparent Gatekeeper" on the WinSock layer of the operating system. All data packets coming on different TCP/IP ports are assembled. It then decodes e-mail and web traffic, FTP and ICQ traffic along with all the attachments and passes them through numerous filters such as Virus Filters, Content Filters, Attachment Filters, etc. These filters check validity of the file's content and issue dynamic notifications.

MWL technology oversees all data flowing to-and-from the Internet, thereby allowing it to process it without interfering with the applications. Dynamic compression and decompression facilities of data flow, between the Internet and your computer in order to maximize effective bandwidth usage are thus provided by MWL.
