SFTP - Antivirus scanning

Jump to solution

Hello,

Can we scan SFTP (SSH with FTP) with Antivirus ?

I know we can check headers. But I do not understand why we can't check file with Antivirus scanning.

Can you tell me why ?

Thanks,

JayGr

Yes, I would imagine so.

From what I can recall, the application defenses that contain the MIME/Virus/Spyware (or just Virus/Spyware) tab are:-

  • FTP (plain FTP not FTPS)
  • HTTP
  • Mail (Sendmail)

As far as I am aware, only services where the associated Application Defense section contains a "MIME/Virus/Spyware" tab have anti virus available to them.
