Sophos antivirus is an in-the-cloud antivirus solution. The virus and malware database is located on external servers maintained by Sophos (Sophos Extensible List) servers, thus there is no need to download and maintain large pattern databases on the Juniper Networks device.

Fallback Options

 

Fallback options are used when the antivirus system experiences errors and must fall back to one of the previously configured actions to either deny (block) or permit the object.

Specify the fallback options to use when there is a failure, or select the default action if no specific options are to be configured:

  • Content Size—Select an option to specify whether the content should be blocked (default) or logged and permitted if the content size the previously defined limit.

  • Content Size Limit—Enter the content size limit in kilobytes (KB) based on which action is taken. The range is 20 through 40,000 KB. The content size limit check occurs before the scan request is sent. The content size refers to accumulated TCP payload size.

  • Engine Error—Select the action to take (Block [default] or Log and Permit) when an engine error occurs.

    The term engine error refers all engine errors, including engine not ready, timeout, too many requests, password protected, corrupt file, decompress layer, and out of resources.

  • Default Action—Select the default action (Block [default] or Log and Permit) to take when an error occurs.

Notification Options

 

Use the notification options to configure a method of notifying the user when a fallback occurs or a virus is detected:

  • Fallback Deny—Select this option to notify mail senders that their messages were blocked.

  • Fallback Non-Deny—Select this option to warn mail recipients that they received unblocked messages despite problems.

  • Virus Detected—Select this option to notify mail recipients that their messages were blocked.
