Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers is designed to protect mail servers and proxy running under UNIX (GNU/Linux, and FreeBSD) from viruses and other types of any malicious software, as well as to prevent distribution of these threats developed for various platforms.

Main components (scan engine and virus databases) are not only highly effective and resource-sparing, but also cross-platform, which lets Doctor Web specialists create reliable anti-virus solutions protecting computers and mobile devices under popular operating systems from threats that target different platforms. Currently, along with Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers, Doctor Web offers anti-virus solutions for both UNIX-based operating systems (such as GNU/Linux, and FreeBSD) and IBM OS/2, Novell NetWare, macOS and Windows. Moreover, other anti-virus products have been developed to deliver protection for devices that run Android, Symbian, BlackBerry, and Windows Mobile.

Components of Dr.Web for UNIX Mail Servers are constantly updated, and virus databases, databases of web resources categories and databases of rules for spam filtering of email messages are regularly supplemented with new signatures to ensure up-to-date protection of servers, workstations and mobile users and their programs and data. To provide additional protection against unknown viruses heuristic analysis methods are implemented in the scan engine and to the Dr.Web Cloud service that stores information about the latest threats, signatures of which are absent in the database (this function is not available for all Dr.Web products).
