McAfee Security, a division of Network Associates, announced an enhanced version of the VirusScan ASaP managed desktop anti-virus service. The new version promises to deliver automated updates without the need for Internet connectivity, ensuring all users on a corporate network are protected. Additionally, in order to ensure greater virus protection for remote and mobile users, the service will now automatically update users when they connect to the network, rather than updating at scheduled times.
VirusScan ASaP is based on the McAfee virus-scanning engine. According to the company, its VirusScan ASaP removes the burden of managing the continuous updates that are necessary to protect against evolving virus threats. In the past, the underlying update technology that provided automated updates, rumor peer-to-peer technology, required a desktop to have Internet access.
