MONTREAL Â December 5, 2001 Â As the ÂGonerÂ virus wreaked havoc on the Internet today, it was a Âno-showÂ on NovellÂ® GroupWiseÂ® systems protected by Beginfinite Inc.Âs eSecurity suite ÂGWAVAÂ. GWAVA (short for ÂGroupWise Anti-Virus AgentÂ) is the only eSecurity solution designed specifically for Novell GroupWise with Anti-Virus, Attachment Blocking, Anti-Spam and Content Filtering capabilities. GWAVAÂs flexible eSecurity Policy Management allows GroupWise administrators to react quickly to new security threats including yesterdayÂs outbreak of the ÂGonerÂ virus.
Attachment Blocking: The Key to Rapid Response
As details of the ÂGonerÂ virus became available, it became apparent that the virus was spreading through an infected file attachment called ÂGONE.SCRÂ. Companies using GWAVA were able to quickly block e-mail containing the GONE.SCR file, which concealed the virus.
ÂToday GWAVA blocked over 200 incoming e-mails containing the Goner virus!Â Said Jeremy Levine, Managing Director at Heartland Consumer Products Canada. ÂOur company was safe while some of our customers, suppliersÂ and competitors were paralyzed for hours. We estimate that GWAVA saved us tens of thousands of dollars in downtime and lost opportunities.Â
