Reduce scan-time

Hi

 

 

I have policy manager 10.01.40601 installed on a MS SRV2008R2 64-bit. I use F-Secure AV 9.20 and AV for WIn SRV 9.00.

 

I have been told that F-Secure can exclude files from scanning if they haven't been changed since last scan (something like how reset archive bit in backup products functions). Is that possible and if so - how?

    Hello,

     

    > and there's not yet a new virus definition update available.

     

    That is not AND, but a rather big IF. Usually there are several F-Secure database updates per day, which are automatically communicated towards FSPM / FSCS users, so a re-scan will happen every few hours, even if the file in question has not changed.

     

    I think there could be an extra setting in F-Secure, in order not to re-scan the unchanged file, even if the protection software has received a new signature update. Make the setting display an "You are modifying this feature on your own responsibility!" warning when activated.
