After we have integrated the anti-spam filter from our new OEM partner Bitdefender, the virus filter now follows as announced.

With this update, the new additional module Collax Antivirus powered by Bitdefender is available for subsequent installation.

The additional module can be licensed and used as a bundle or individually for one of the areas mail, web and file. Cloud protection is also integrated and can be optionally activated. According to Bitdefender, this should further increase the detection rate and reduce the number of false positive detections. When scanning in the cloud, no files are transferred, only hash values and some meta information, as well as an ID of the server. Because we respect your data sovereignty, the cloud feature is turned off by default.
