Does MOVE protect Network Shares?

Jump to solution

We are implementing a secure FTP solution.

The FTP servers will be VMWare guests. The VMWare hosts have McAfee MOVE installed.

We want to host the storage for the FTP servers in CIFS shares on our NetApp and EMC SANs. Shares to be created 'natively' on the SANs, no file servers.

I have 2 questions.

1. - If the FTP servers have mapped drives to the network shares, will MOVE scan/protect the network shares?

2. - If the answer to question 1. is no, does our MOVE licensing allow us to install McAfee software directly on the FTP servers that will scan/protect the network shares?

MOVE does not support scanning of network drives, either mounted as DFS shares or mapped drives. It is recommended that customers use VirusScan Enterprise for Storage and scan files locally, not over the network.

Hi @bcandrew,

Thanks for the info. Is there a KB or product guide that mentions this? Can't seem to find one!

Thanks

This thread is almost a year old.

Features which are not part of a product, won't be documented - so no, the MOVE docs won't tell you about things MOVE does not do. As BC suggested though, you need to talk to your McAfee rep about VSE options.

Move is designed to protect VM's, not to do file share scanning.

Thanks for the reply SafeBoot.

I have since discovered that File Share scanning is a feature of MOVE AV [Multi-Platform] which I am using (as opposed to Agentless).

I enabled this within the Move Client Policy, and I thought that it was not working when testing however I discovered the behavior was expected as per this KB
