New malware continues to be created at an exponenetial rate - in mid-2013, AV-Test Institute was registering over 200,000 new malicious programs every day. The volume and sophistication of malware continues to grow exponentially and zero day attacks are also on the rise. Much of today's malware is fueled by financially motivated cyber criminals, trying to gain access to valuable corporate, consumer and/or personal data. Malware can disrupt your operations, cost you time and money in repair and remediation and could lead to stolen information.
Organizations need anti-virus software that provides fast and accurate identification of the vast amount of known malware. And with malware's increasing sophistication, organizations need protection that employs multiple detection techniques to identify and block unknown malware (e.g., zero-day exploits).
Introducing Lumension® AntiVirus
Lumension® AntiVirus is based on proven technology that incorporates a pioneering and industry-leading anti-malware engine to provide protection against all malware, including viruses, Trojans, rootkits, spyware and adware. It provides advanced protection via traditional signature-matching capabilities as well as innovative DNA Matching, SandBox and Exploit Detection technologies which provide proactive protection against zero-day threats.
And by combining this signature-based blacklisting and behavioral malware detection with the proactive whitelisting approach of Lumension® Application Control, you can ensure defense-in-depth endpoint security. This provides you the flexibility to achieve strong and comprehensive endpoint protection using complementary solutions on different endpoints depending on their security requirements.
Lumension® AntiVirus is available as a stand-alone module or within the Lumension® Intelligent Whitelisting™ solution, which integrates Lumension® AntiVirus, Lumension® Application Control with its trust-based change management engine, and Lumension® Patch and Remediation to deliver a unified workflow that effectively operationalizes whitelisting for dynamic endpoint environments. Both Lumension® Antivirus and Lumension® Intelligent Whitelisting™ are delivered on the Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite.
Lumension® AntiVirus is an important protective component in a comprehensive defense-in-depth endpoint security strategy
Block malware Prevent viruses, worms, Trojans and other types of malware such as keyloggers, hijackers and rootkits from wreaking havoc on endpoints. Software Demo: Discovering Modern-Day Malware
Remove identified malware Ensure that any detected malware is removed or quarantined and not allowed to impact network assets. Software Demo: Balancing Protection and Productivity
Granular AV policy management with CPU throttling Create and schedule multiple AV scans per endpoint with different scan settings at different times (e.g., daily scan with light scan settings and weekend scan with heavy scan settings), ensuring endpoint performance and user productivity is not impacted by AV scans.

Lumension® AntiVirus Workflow
Use signature-based scanning to identify known malware, including viruses, worms, Trojans, keyloggers, hijackers, rootkits and other malicious software. Use behavioral analysis tools (including DNA Matching, SandBox, and Exploit Detection) to assess suspicious code / applications.
Prevent known malware and suspicious code from executing, and remove it from all network assets.
Use customized triggers to generate alerts based on network-wide events (such as a spreading infection). Use dashboard on web-based management console to understand overall network "health" and current event/client status of all endpoints.
Use comprehensive, customizable reporting facility to cover entire network status and any incidents.
