Features

Vital protection for your server data

High-performance mailbox server protection integrates perfectly with most popular operating systems, such as Windows Exchange 2003/2007/2010/2013 Server, via Microsoft's Virus Scan APIs.

Built-in antispam

Antispam for Microsoft Exchange servers 2007/2010/2013 with the latest Service Pack keeps your mailbox free of SPAM and phishing scams.

Benefit from real-time protection

Your virus database will be continuously updated with the latest definitions in real-time via connection to the AVAST Virus Lab, so your network will have even new ‘zero-day’ threat signatures as soon as we do.

Be in control with real-time alerts

Our easy-to-navigate graphical user interface (GUI) offers a user-friendly central window to all program functions. Comprehensive reporting options provide adjustable parameters for what information gets reported and how often.

Simple and convenient licensing

Licenses can be purchased on a per-server basis (rather than per mailbox), for greater convenience.

Technologies

Improved User interface (UI)

The avast! UI has been redesigned to keep up with modern navigation styles.

Improved Remote Assistance

The Remote Assistance feature allows avast! users to connect and share desktops with each other. This may be useful for technical support as well as for general administrative purpose.

Improved Antivirus and anti-spyware engine

Our award-winning scanning engine protects against viruses, spyware, and other malicious agents, now with a new algorithm that is based on machine learning, which can process new-virus data in milliseconds rather than hours.

Improved Streaming, real-time virus database updates

Each virus signature comes to you in real-time via connection to the AVAST Virus Lab cloud, rather than needing to wait for a traditional virus-database update. Your database will be continuously updated with latest definitions.

Improved Antispam

Antispam for Microsoft Exchange servers 2007/2010/2013 with the latest Service Pack.

Improved Behavior Shield

Our Behavior Shield now uses more sophisticated logic for determining – with greater precision – whether any running processes are displaying any unusual behavior.

Mail Shield

Scans all incoming/outgoing email for malware (a special plug-in is used for MS Outlook).

Web Shield

Scans all visited web pages, downloaded files, and java scripts. Thanks to the intelligent stream scanning feature, the Web Shield doesn't slow your web browsing.

Script Shield

Detects malicious scripts hidden in web pages and prevents them from hijacking and potentially damaging your computer.

P2P Shield/IM Shield

Checks files downloaded via P2P programs and while using IM or "chat" programs.

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.

Code emulator

Uses dynamic translation (much faster than traditional emulation) for both generic unpacking and within the heuristics engine.

Simple attachment blocker

Blocks attachments based on their file extension.

Exchange plug-in

For tight integration with the Exchange server.

Background scanning option

Scans without impeding day-to-day operation of the server.

Notification manager

Built-in and customizable, to ease your workload.
