Dr Solomon's launched its Active Virus Defence (AVD) initiative on Friday with the aim of shielding businesses from viruses and the promise of delivering cures 20 times faster than previously.
AVD is an integrated suite of anti-virus products that includes several new components - ePolicy Orchestrator, Anti-Virus Informant and Outbreak Manager, and a raft of upgrades, including Virusscan, Webshield, Groupshield and Netshield.
Sal Viveros, Dr Solomon's director of marketing, said: "1999 was the year of the virus, when Melissa, Chernobyl and Explorezip struck. Today there are over 50,000 viruses. Last year they cost businesses worldwide over $12.1 billion."
Anti-Virus Informant tracks infection hotspots, virus entry and infection patterns, providing organisations with a picture of their virus security, while Outbreak Manager stops viruses before real damage is done by identifying patterns of infection and sealing them off from the network.
e-Policy Orchestrator, on the other hand, manages virus policy and updates and can handle up to 100,000 users.
Viveros claimed: "Sometimes updates are left to individual users. Centralising the process enforces updates and even remote users can be managed. This allows companies to get compressed versions of critical fixes to stop virus outbreaks in their tracks. Cures can be delivered up to twenty times faster than with old technology, giving system administrators the edge."
Eric Hemmendinger, an analyst for the Aberdeen Group, said: "A zero tolerance attitude towards virus attacks is becoming increasingly important and increasingly viable. Active Virus Defence delivers a highly manageable, top-to-bottom solution for protection against all types of virus attacks from all points of entry."
