Vexira Releases Centrally Managed Security Suite for Windows

Vexira Antivirus offers organizations in-depth, scalable, network wide protection from viruses, worms, spyware, and malicious Web pages

MEDINA, Ohio, May 2, 2005, Central Command(R), a leading provider of antivirus solutions for businesses and educational institutions, announced today the immediate availability of Vexira(R) Antivirus for Microsoft Windows workstations and servers with upgraded centrally managed antivirus, spyware and malicious Web content protection. This new, all-inclusive data security application suite significantly increases the protection level of Vexira Antivirus on Windows-based networks by offering enhanced defenses against viruses, spyware, worms, and malicious Web pages where dangerous programs are present.

By identifying infectious files as they are accessed, performing Internet monitoring and directly integrating within Microsoft Office, Vexira Antivirus now gives organizations the highest level of virus, worm and spyware protection against new infection "touch points", areas previously vulnerable to virus propagation by traditional antivirus measures. Automatic network deployment, configuration, database and application upgrading, including timely updates during virus outbreaks can be accomplished easily using the Vexira Central Management Solution or individually using the embedded upgrading technology within the Vexira Antivirus client itself.

"What we have done with Vexira Antivirus today is move what typically is deployed at the Internet gateway, or edge, to each client within the network. This is exciting news for network administrators since Web-based and E-mail content can be analyzed for viruses, trojans, worms and spyware, as well as providing traditional antivirus defenses at each desktop or workstation. When combined with the Vexira Central Management Solution, enterprises can now effectively manage and defend themselves within a single framework," said Keith A. Peer, CEO, Central Command Inc.
