Service providers using SWsoft Plesk control panel software can now add more protection against spyware, Trojans, worms, key loggers and other malicious programs. Through an agreement with Kaspersky Lab, SWsoft today announced it will offer Plesk Anti-Virus Powered by Kaspersky for the Linux and Windows platforms.

Plesk Anti-Virus Powered by Kaspersky combines reactive antivirus and spyware detection methods with proactive technologies to provide the most effective protection for hosted e-mail. The software is simple to install and set up, while offering advanced users a range of versatile settings for fine-tuning the program. SWsoft is currently offering the software as an add-on for Plesk 8.1 for Windows. The add-on is also available for Linux users in Plesk 8.2.

"We are pleased to offer our Plesk customers an anti-virus option based on technology from Kaspersky Lab, one of the most trusted names in Internet security," said Serguei Beloussov, CEO of SWsoft.
