Exchange and Sharepoint Server Protection

This Article Applies to:

  • Business Hub
  • Avast Business On-Premise Console

Exchange Server Protection

The Exchange component for Windows Servers is specifically meant to protect your Exchange Server from threats without interfering in its function.

Scanning Tab

Business Hub and Avast Business Cloud Console

Avast Business On-Premise Console

Configure the basic settings for your protection, which is only able to scan messages on the IS level.

Settings: choose whether to scan messages on-access and/or in the background, enable proactive scanning, scan at the transport level, scan RTF message bodies, and/or try to clean infected objects.

Actions Tab

Business Hub and Avast Business Cloud Console

Avast Business On-Premise Console

Configure what action your Antivirus takes when an infected or untestable item is located. Choose between Allow full access to the item, Overwrite the item with a warning, or Delete the whole message. You can also change the infected object's icon if possible.

Blocking Tab

Business Hub and Avast Business Cloud Console

Avast Business On-Premise Console

Configure the list of attachments and files that are always blocked by entering the filename mask to the list. You can also choose what the file name is replaced by, and the contents of the .txt file that will replace the blocked file.

Sharepoint Server Protection

The SharePoint component for Windows Servers is specifically meant to protect your SharePoint Server from threats without interfering in its function.

Resident Task Settings Tab (Business Hub and Avast Business Cloud Console only)

Choose whether to deny access to or replace uncleanable objects found during scanning. Also determine how much logging should take place, though higher settings here may slow the scanning process.

Packers Tab (Business Hub and Avast Business Cloud Console only)

Configure which archive (packer) files Avast Business Antivirus should try to unpack during the scanning process. Unpacked files can be better analyzed for malware by Sharepoint Protection. Unpacking a file is the same as extracting a file from an archive. Original archives, including the files contained within, remain intact when being processed by this component.

You can select All packers, or specific packer files from the extensive list by checking the boxes.

SharePoint server protection does not have any configurable options in the Avast Business On-Premise Console.
