Learn about the new features and enhancements in Worry-Free Business Security (WFBS) 8.0.


Platform support

The Security Server and Security Agents can now be installed on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.

IPv6 support

The Security Server, Security Agents, Messaging Security Agents (Advanced only), and Remote Manager Agent can now be installed on IPv6 clients.

Advanced cleanup

When configured to run advanced cleanup, Security Agents can stop activities by rogue security software, also known as FakeAV. The agent also uses advanced cleanup rules to proactively detect and stop applications that exhibit FakeAV behavior.

Enable advanced cleanup on Security Agents when you configure your Manual Scan and Scheduled Scan settings.

Action against probable virus/malware

For probable virus/malware, the default action is Deny Access during Real-time Scan and Pass during Manual Scan and Scheduled Scan. If these are not your preferred actions, you can change them to Quarantine, Delete, or Rename.

Client shutdown after Scheduled Scan

A new setting in the web console (Scans > Scheduled Scan > Schedule tab) allows agents to initiate a shutdown of the client after completing a Scheduled Scan. This setting can only be configured from the web console and is not available to users with Scheduled Scan privileges.

Security Agent installation path

During the Security Server installation, you are prompted to specify the installation path where Security Agents are installed. In previous versions, the installation path cannot be changed when the Security Server installation has been completed. In this version, you can change the installation path from the web console by navigating to Preferences > Global Settings > System > Security Agent Installation directory section. After changing the path, new Security Agents will be installed to this path.
