McAfee Beefs Up VirusScan Security

Antivirus software company McAfee is unveiling a new version of its VirusScan Enterprise software that contains so-called "intrusion prevention" features, the company says this week.

The intrusion protection features are designed to protect computers from attacks such as buffer overflows, which are often used by viruses, worms and malicious hackers to compromise vulnerable Microsoft Windows machines.

VirusScan Enterprise 8.0i integrates intrusion prevention services and firewall technology with antivirus software to protect personal computers and file servers from new malicious code outbreaks automatically. The new version of VirusScan also has features to manage new malicious code outbreaks, limiting the damage they cause, McAfee says.
