OfficeScan General Introduction (For Campus Network Use)
The Trend Micro OfficeScan Corporate Edition is centrally-managed virus protection software for campus workstations. It protects our campus’s computers from computer viruses. OfficeScan’s antivirus function is provided through its client software. The virus protection clients are installed to all Windows workstations throughout our campus. These client programs perform the real-time and manual virus scanning.
There is two-way communication between the OfficeScan server and the OfficeScan clients. Configuration updates, new virus pattern files, scan engines and program updates are sent from the server to the clients. In the opposite direction, the client sends status information to the server which can then be viewed within the management console.
OfficeScan provides many configurations for infected file handling. IT Services adopts clean or quarantine configuration. The OfficeScan try to clean virus first, if it can’t clean the virus then quarantine this infected file to a separate directory in local machine.
