ICAP antivirus integration is available in FileCloud Server version 18.2
Internet Content Adaption Protocol (ICAP) is a generic protocol that allows web servers to offload specialized tasks to custom-built servers. Examples of such specialized tasks include DLP (data loss prevention) based content scanning, URL filtering and antivirus scanning.FileCloud provides maximum flexibility by using ICAP to integrate with any ICAP supporting antivirus product currently available in the market.
FileCloud's ICAP integration module:
- Works on both Linux and Windows servers
- Triggers virus scanning only for uploaded files, that is - when files are uploaded to a FileCloud server instance
- Scanning is scheduled "inline" as soon as the file upload is completed
- Is integrated into FileCloud server itself
- Provides flexibility and scalability - the ICAP antivirus server does not have to be deployed on the same server as the one running the FileCloud server instance.
If you have already purchased your own anti-virus solution and want to use it, or if you do not want to use ClamAV for various reasons, you should use the ICAP mechanism.
