Cavion Plus Adds Security

MOUNDS VIEW, Minn.-Cavion Plus, a provider of e-business solutions, has added an additional layer of security to its managed firewall product. The new development, Gateway Anti-Virus, addresses the challenge of viruses and worms that are "becoming more sophisticated in the way they disguise themselves," according to Cavion Plus Product Manager Kevin Prince. "To combat this explosive threat, Gateway Anti-Virus delivers more complete protection to ensure credit unions remain safe on the Internet."

The product is designed to be a seamless add-on to Cavion Plus' existing managed firewall product. The product scans traffic that passes through the firewall, and stops viruses before they reach the internal network. No additional hardware or software is required and all updates and maintenance fall under the managed firewall service agreement.

The anti-virus product automatically updates every 60 minutes to ensure it has the latest virus signatures.
