Network Associates, Inc. announced the availability of McAfee PortalShield 1.0 for Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server. McAfee PortalShield offers virus protection for Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server 2001, 2003 and Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services. McAfee PortalShield is integrated with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) for policy management and enforcement, enterprise-wide visibility, rapid software deployment and distribution of the latest virus definitions. Each time a document is written to or read from the document libraries, the McAfee PortalShield software scans the content and compares it with a list of known viruses and suspected virus-like behavior. McAfee PortalShield also scans for content within the document or Webpart using the rules and policies defined within the McAfee PortalShield software. Lexical and content management capabilities enable McAfee PortalShield to apply these rules and policies to over 280 document types such as Acrobat Reader and Microsoft Word. Using McAfee PortalShield rules, document download and upload actions can be prevented, and alerts sent to the administrator if the documents contain banned content. McAfee PortalShield is currently available through Network Associates channel partners and its direct sales force.
