"In 1999, Kaspersky Lab was the first to develop an anti-virus system fully integrated into NDS and NWAdmin. The recent introduction of Kaspersky Anti-Virus featuring the integration into ConsoleOne confirms our intended course of providing users with comprehensive, cost-effective and centrally managed anti-virus defence, and makes the product one of the world's most technically advanced anti-viruses for Novell NetWare," said Denis Zenkin, Head of Corporate Communications for Kaspersky Lab.

The main feature that sets this program apart from other anti-virus programs is the product's integration into ConsoleOne. This allows the antivirus defence to be done at a centralized computer, and thus decrease administrative overhead.

Another valuable feature is the ability to perform anti-virus database updates by downloading via the internet, using an independent program module. This eliminates the necessity to reboot the server each time the anti-virus database is updated.

Other features include a new Java-based management system, an optimised structure of the update distribution across the network, support for multithreaded virus scanning.

Kaspersky Lab encourages all concerned parties to join the Kaspersky Anti-Virus for Novell NetWare beta-testing team. If you are interested in becoming a beta-tester, please contact them at
