About Anti-malware Filtering

Anti-malware filtering ensures that the users of your network cannot access web objects that are infected by viruses and other malware. The filtering process detects infections and blocks access accordingly.

A default process for anti-malware filtering is implemented on Secure Web Gateway after the initial setup.

This process requires no administration, but you can configure it to meet the requirements of your organization. You can also extend the process or create your own process.

Important configuration items used in this process include:

  • Gateway Anti-Malware rule set — Default rule set for anti-malware filtering
  • Anti-malware settings — Settings for the Anti-Malware module, also known as engine or filter, which is involved in the anti-malware filtering process to handle the use of anti-malware engines for scanning web objects.
    The default settings for this module are the Gateway Anti-Malware settings.

To modify or extend the process, or to create your own process, you can use these items as a starting point.
