ServerProtect for Microsoft Windows and Novell NetWare

Simple, effective anti-malware protection for enterprise-class servers


Enterprise servers can be a vulnerable, centralized point of information exchange. Even from inside the network, users or applications without adequate protection can unintentionally upload infected files to the server, which can spread to other systems that access these files. Additionally, large organizations may have hundreds or thousands of individual server machines that require monitoring, configuration, and maintenance. More importantly, today’s sophisticated attacks can target multiple points on the network and leave unseen trails of damage and the potential for re-infection.

Trend Micro™ ServerProtect™ delivers the industry’s most reliable virus, spyware and rootkit protection while simplifying and automating security operations on servers. ServerProtect scans and detects malware in real time and incorporates cleanup capabilities to help remove malicious code and repair system damage. Administrators can use one management console to centrally enforce, administer, and update malware protection on every server throughout an organization. This robust solution enables enterprises to secure the entire server file system including compressed archives, distribute virus patterns to remove any viruses that get through, and help automate the damage cleanup process to resolve problems left by virus infections. As a result, the cost and efforts associated with a virus infection can be significantly reduced.

Server Protect

  • ServerProtect can be configured to download virus pattern files and scan engine updates automatically and then distribute them to designated servers. It uses an incremental update mechanism so that the designated servers only download the new virus pattern files that have been added since the last version, saving download time and preserving network bandwidth.
  • ServerProtect employs a three-tier architecture; the Management Console, the Information Server, and the Normal Server. A Normal Server can be any server on the network on which ServerProtect is installed—for example, a file server or FTP server. The Management Console is used to configure dedicated Information Servers, which then control the Normal Servers.
