The SeaSecure Courier AntiVirus has been used by leading maritime compaines since 2007. Courier Antivirus updates for Symantec
With the rapid spread of new viruses via e-mail and USB sticks, it has become more and more important to keep antivirus software up to date. On a marine vessel this is often a troublesome task, as the definition files are usually too large to be downloaded electronically. The solution is to use SeaSecure Couriers AntiVirus to send incremental virus definitions to the vessel, meaning that only the data changed since the last update is transmitted.
SeaSecure Courier AntiVirus Features:
Manageable file sizes.
Scan engine updated,you’ll never need to send cds onboard.
You always know the update status of every pc on the vessel.
Scan engine updated at the same time as definition files.
Automatic reporting back.
Customer knows when pcs have been updated.
Files sent never exceed 480kb.
Courier is a subscription service. When you subscribe you will receive a software package to install on-board. (The Symantec antivirus application is not a part of the subscription and must be purchased if not already installed.) Normal update frequency will be once a week. However, this can vary depending on how crucial the new virus definitions are. The file will then be sent from Confido Courier by email.
When the e-mail is received on the ship, the attached definition file is automatically extracted to the Courier import folder. Courier will then update the virus definitions on all clients on-board. The Courier service on the vessel produces a status file weekly which is then placed in the Courier export folder and then automatically returned by email.
We load the status file into our client database. The file will contain information about received virus definitions and which version is implemented on each client. If a definition file is missing it will be resent. All irregularities will be notified to the ship and to other designated personnel.
