|What is SureNet's Email Virus Scanning Protection?
SureNet's Email Virus Scanning Protection is a value-added feature that has been designed to prevent viruses from being transmitted to SureNet customers via email. This Virus Scanning Service automatically scans all incoming emails for viruses before they arrive in your mail box; thereby stopping viruses before they reach your desktop and securing your email environment.
Why is Email Virus Scanning Protection such an invaluable feature?
There are over 50,000 known viruses. Unlike in the past, today most computers are infected with a virus transmitted via email. On ISPs and company mail servers without real time email virus scanning, one in every 150 emails received has a virus.
Viruses come from many different systems on the Internet, mailing lists, list servers, spammers, commercial sites, friends, and business associates. Just about anybody who sends you email can infect your system whether they intend to or not. Viruses are of many types. Some only execute a cute program and do no harm. Others infect your computer, then reproduce themselves. Some viruses can destroy data on your computer as well as send itself out to your contacts from your Email account. Others will completely destroy your operating system and may even require you to take your computer to a repair shop to be completely restored. Even users who don't open unexpected attachments are still vulnerable to viruses which can be innocently imbedded in files which are being expected. Viruses can come in any shape or form such as Microsoft Word and Excel files.
During our test phase, we learned:
- We can detect incomming infected email over 99% of the time.
- None of our testers received an email with a virus during this period.
- SureNet blocked 5,000 emails with a virus during our test phase.
- Customer's computers will run better because no viruses transmitted via Email will be able to modify the way it works. SureNet's Antivirus Protection will keep your system from being at risk.

How does SureNet's Virus Email Scanning Protection work?
Every email received to an address subscribed to SureNets Virus Protection Service is scanned for over 50,000 viruses. We update our virus signatures daily to ensure that all emails are scanned with the most up-to-date virus information to ensure protection against the newest & most recent virus outbreaks. If a virus is detected, the virus is cleaned if possible or the infected content is deleted and quarantined. The virus will NOT be delivered to you. The email will be sent with its original text message with a DELETED.TXT attachment that will advise you of what virus was removed from your mail. It is perfectly safe to open a file with .TXT extensions.
Can SureNet's Virus Email Scanning Protection totally protect me from viruses?
No, new viruses and exploits are created daily and no virus protection system can be 100% effective. SureNet's Email Virus Protection is designed & explicitly offered as an additional service measure to help protect you from viruses spread via email. Since viruses are spread by many different methods, it is not meant to replace the need for virus scanning software and to continually update your own virus definitions for your local virus scanning software. SureNet's email scanning service will provide you with additional preventive measure to protect your computer & network.
