Russian security firm Kaspersky Lab has released the version 8.5 of its Anti-Virus for Microsoft ISA Server and Microsoft TMG Gateway.

The new version scans web and mail traffic passing through the firewalls offered by Microsoft’s applications and detects, disinfects or blocks malicious objects.

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 8.5 for Microsoft ISA Server/TMG Gateway adds support for Enterprise editions of Microsoft ISA Server and Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway.

The new release now comes with a new antivirus engine with improved scanning speed, support wider possible deployment scenarios for Microsoft’s products, a centralised statistics database and backup storage for disinfected or removed objects. The new interface also simplifies the management of all the application’s settings.

Kaspersky Lab chief product officer Petr Merkulov said the new version of its antivirus application for Microsoft’s products secures a company’s perimeter with an antivirus engine, eliminating all threats found in web and email traffic.

"Added support for Enterprise editions of Microsoft ISA Server and Forefront TMG broadens the range of security infrastructure deployments, which now can be protected by Kaspersky Lab’s technology and expertise," Merkulov said.

Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway integration will help the new application to scan protected HTTPS data flows. It is compatible with virtual network infrastructure running on the VMware platform and also distributes the workload among several CPUs and/or servers.
