Powerful Plesk AntiVirus Add-On

Dr.Web is the only antivirus product that enables not just a usual file disinfection which is a must for a modern antivirus, but also a whole system recovery which requires, in other products' cases, an acquisition of a curing utility specially designed to cure only one virus. Unlike most other products, Dr.Web remains active in the infected system detecting and eradicating the infection roots. The Plesk team and the developers of Dr.Web have created an integrated solution to protect UNIX-based mail servers by what is considered the leading SMTP protection solution available today.

The solution is priced especially for those users who consider high charges a critical issue for server administrators and are trying to stem the day to day cost of system administration. Virus definitions updates are issued several times a day and customers have the ability to protect against the most recent threats almost in real time mode.

  • Options to repair, rename, or delete infected files
  • Automated Internet updating
  • Virus scan archives (.zip, .rar, gz, .tar, etc...)
