Compatiable Anti-virus scan engine for WSS 3.0 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Other than the Microsoft Forefront Security for SharePoint, what are the other virus scan engines that are compatiable with SharePoint 2007?


    Although the SharePoint central administration page has a section where we can enable virus scanning when user uploads or downloads a document to and from the document library, this feature is only available for SharePoint 2007 compatitable anti-virus engine. The current Symantec Antivirus (version 10.2) in our company's system does not work with the virus scanning feature provided by SharePoint 2007. This is a critical problem in my current project and i hope someone can help me out with this issue.

  • At the moment you have a few choices. Microsoft have Forefront Security , Mcafee have portal shield and I believe Trend Also have a SharePoint pluggin. Bitdefender had one for SharePoint 2003 but I have not seen an 07 version yet.
