Manual Scanning Overview

Access this page from the Monitor menu.

If you suspect a file is suspicious, you can manually upload it to the cloud for scanning and evaluation. Click the Manual Upload button to browse to the file you want to upload. The file can be up to 32 MB.

There is a limit to the number of files administrators can upload for manual scanning. File uploads are limited by realm (across all users in a realm) in a 24-hour period. You can upload two files per each active device enrolled and 10 files per each premium-licensed device in your account. For example, if you have two Sky ATP premium-licensed SRX Series devices and one other SRX Series device, Sky ATP will allow a maximum of 22 files to be allowed in a 24-hour window.

Note: You must have an SRX Series device registered with Sky ATP in order to use the manual file scanning feature.
