    When a threat is detected – Specify how to handle infected files:

    • Log Only – An email is sent to the portal listing the file that might be infected and the file is copied to quarantine. It is still possible to download or preview the infected file.
    • Block Viruses – The infected file is not downloaded and it is quarantined.

    Maximum content size to scan – The maximum size of a file to be scanned. Since most viruses are found at the beginning of the file, CTERA does not recommend changing this value. Increasing the value will adversely impact scanning performance.
    Retain quarantine files for – The number of days that files are kept in quarantine before being removed.
    Connections per ICAP Server – The number of connections available for use by the portal for the ICAP server. This is the recommended value.
