The Okuma OSP Virus Protection System uses virus scanning application Trend Micro to provide reliable, safe, and user-friendly protection against harmful computer viruses.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (November 8, 2013) – Okuma America Corporation, a world leader in CNC machine tools, offers OSP Virus Protection System (OSP-VPS) that embeds a virus scanning application programming interface (VSAPI) from Trend Micro for Okuma OSP-P controls (OSP-P300/P200A/P200/P20) to prevent infection by viruses from networks or USB flash drives.
Features of Okuma’s OSP-VPS include:
- Reliability- Before virus pattern file is distributed and the search engines are updated, operations are verified in advance by Okuma to prevent CNC software detection errors.
- Maintainability- The system issues an alarm (D) when a virus is detected. On the display screen, operators can easily check the corrective actions taken.
- Safety- Virus scans are performed after completion of automatic and MDI operations to prevent slowing of screen responses due to scheduled virus scans.
- Usability- Pattern files and search engine updates can be done either manually via the operator’s PC or automatically via the internet. The option to update through the operator’s PC or USB memory can be used for machines not connected to a LAN or those on a closed LAN.
OSP-VPS is available as a factory or field option on all OSP-P300/P200A/P200/P20 control machines. For more information on the OSP Virus Protection System, visithttp://www.okuma.com/okuma-
