Web Traffic Scanning Scanning downloaded content via HTTP
and FTP for viruses using one or more virus scanning engines. By
default GFI WebMonitor supports three virus scanning engines;
BitDefender, Kaspersky and Norman.
Real filetype signature check GFI WebMonitor performs real
filetype signature checks on all HTTP/FTP files being downloaded.
Filetype signatures are a short series of bytes that define the true
type and content of a file. GFI WebMonitor will detect and block
dangerous/unauthorized files based on their filetype signature (i.e.
blocking of documents or executables based on their file signature
rather than on their declared file extension).
Automatic anti virus definition updates GFI WebMonitor
periodically checks and downloads new anti virus definitions for its
virus scanning engine(s). The frequency at which GFI
WebMonitor checks for virus definition updates is customizable
from GFI WebMonitor configuration interface.
Email Notifications On the occurrence of important events, GFI
WebMonitor will send out administrative alerts via email
notifications to a target recipient. Important events include:
Failed updating of the virus definition files used by the virus
Approaching of anti virus license expiry.
