Creating Antivirus Profiles
Use the Unified Threat Management (UTM) policy page to configure antivirus profiles.
The antivirus profile defines the content to scan for any malware and the action to be taken when malware is detected. Once you create a profile, you can assign it to UTM policies. Within the UTM policy, you can apply either the same antivirus profile or create one inline to scan Web, file transfer, and e-mail traffic.
Before You Begin
Read the UTM Overview topic.
Decide what kind of filtering you want for the UTM policy: Web Filtering, Antispam, Antivirus, or Content Filtering.
Review the Antivirus Profile main page for an understanding of your current data set. See Antivirus Profile Main Page Fields for field descriptions.

Use the fallback options to be configured when there is a failure, or select the default action if no specific options are to be configured:
Use the notification options to configure a method of notifying the user when a fallback occurs or a virus is detected:
