Email Virus Protection
SecureTrek Virus Protection is a part of N.O.R.A.D. services protecting incoming and outgoing email. SecureTrek Virus Protection scans all mail that passes through N.O.R.A.D. SMTP servers. As long as your users connect to the N.O.R.A.D. server to send their email, SecureTrek will scan both the incoming and outgoing mail.
SecureTrek Virus will quarantine viruses, or delete them. It will not clean them. In the past, cleaning viruses was a way to allow the recipient to still get his/her mail delivered, even if the email had a virus. However, the risks of cleaning the virus now outweigh the benefits. In some cases the virus will get through even though the virus was “cleaned.”
It’s not worth the risk. For example, the most common viruses (such as Klez and Sircam) will send out random documents from people's hard drives. In some cases, this can be devastating if confidential documents, passwords, and so forth are sent out by a virus. So you can understand that although SecureTrektm Virus won't clean email, that's a good thing. Read more..
