Sophos server not updating
I have written a program, for the Windows implementation of the Sophos Anti-Virus, that automates this manual process.This program determines the installed version of SAV, checks whether there are new virus definitions (IDE files) available on the Sophos web site, downloads and installs them if appropriate.Andrew Mc Lean, 3 September 2004 Sophos Anti-virus (SAV) is a proprietary anti-virus program, which is mainly marketed to large organisations.The license purchased by my employer allows the use of the software by employees on their personal computers at home. Unfortunately, although it is in many respects a very nice program, the basic version of SAV does not provide for automated updating over the Internet, instead a tedious manual process is required.The program will attempt to determine if a proxy server is configured for use by Internet Explorer and use this.
This can help prevent users from accessing radical, political content, hacking sites, or violent websites.
In addition, you can further increase security by not allowing the download of files with certain extensions, such as dll, exe, flv, etc.
With the Web Control you can define your own rules and even set the time for them.
This has enabled Sophos to detect this and, with Live Protection, improve response time to detect new malware and update your server protection in real time.
Enable Live Protection to allow your server protection client to check files for malicious files on Sophos Labs in real time to see if they are malicious.
