This article presents information on the Enterprise Manager (EM) Library automated virus protection tool introduced by Sophos. With EM Library users can schedule automatic updates of the latest virus protection across many platforms, Windows, Mac, NetWare, Linux and Unix. Additional features include a proactive alerting mechanism that keeps network managers fully up to date with operational conditions. Managers can specify the time and frequency of the scheduled anti-virus updates across the platforms and the library itself can be updated hourly to get all the latest protections as soon as they are released by Sophos. The library's proactive alerts can be delivered by electronic mail, desktop messaging or event log to ensure managers are informed about system performance and to allow them to check that downloads and installations are running optimally. Added to that, the library allows Sophos to add special messages to updates, perhaps flagging important technical information or on a matter of customer support.
