NMCI Spyware and virus protection upgrade begins.

Navy Marine Corps Intranet users are receiving enhanced virus protection and relief from Spyware and Adware. On Sept. 16, NMCI began rolling out an upgrade to Symantec AntiVirus (SAV). The updated software provides proactive virus and vulnerability-based detection of blended threats, Spyware, Adware, unauthorized network access and mass-mailer attacks. The rollout is currently scheduled to be complete by the end of December.

The solution, which runs almost invisibly after installation, contains an update of NMCI's existing SAV 8.1 to SAV 10. Users will be able to conduct a scan for viruses on their own or can allow the application to scan continuously for security risks.

Users will receive notifications if any infections to their workstations have been detected.

This upgrade is part of Symantec Client Security, which also includes Symantec Client Firewall. The software provides realtime protection to dramatically reduce the risk of Spyware reaching the system and provides the automatic removal of most current infections, enabling security risks to be easily disposed.

Applications or .les found affected by viruses and Spyware are then cleaned or quarantined.
