Manual Scanning Overview

Access this page from the Monitor > ATP > File Scanning > Manual Uploads menu.

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

Benefits of Manually Scanning Files

  • Allows you to investigate files that were not filtered by existing blocklists.

  • Provides all file analysis data that accompanies known suspicious files, such as behavior analysis and network activity.

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.
