Configure the Anti-Malware for GAM settings


Configure the settings used by the Anti-Malware and Gateway Anti-Malware feature:

  1. Go to Policy > Web Policy > Feature Configuration.
  2. From the Feature Config list, select Anti-Malware for GAM > Default Gateway Anti-Malware.

  3. From the Actions drop-down list, select Clone and Edit.

  4. Provide a name for the feature configuration and an optional comment.

  5. Select an option:

    • Use the Anti-Malware engine alone to filter known threats. The Anti-Malware module filters known threats from web traffic, while allowing known good traffic to pass.

    • Optimum Coverage: Combination of McAfee Enterprise Anti-Malware and Gateway Anti-Malware engines to filter known and unknown threats. The Gateway Anti-Malware engine adds inspection of unknown web traffic to the filtering of known threats performed by the Anti-Malware module.

  6. (Optimum coverage) Using the slider, select a value in the 0–100% range for the Block file threshold. The Anti-Malware feature blocks files based on this threshold and the risk value assigned to the files by the Gateway Anti-Malware engine. Lowering the threshold provides less anti-malware protection, while raising the threshold provides more protection.

  7. Click Save. The named Anti-Malware for GAM configuration is saved locally
