It's not really a discontinued product, afaik. It is still on NAI Product
List and DAT files are monthly updated.

The problem is : how can one achieve a behaviour similar to NAI Netshield on
Windoze NT server where all accessed files are scanned as soon as they are

Netshield for Linux does just virus scanning on demand. But maybe some
sophisticated setup would do the job...
