Configuring Antivirus Settings for SharePoint 2013

Posted By: Destin Joy     Category: Sharepoint 2010     Views: 428006

After you install a compatible antivirus scanner in your farm, you can configure several antivirus settings for SharePoint 2013 at the web application level. These settings will not take effect unless you install an antivirus scanner. There are

several antivirus products available that are designed to integrate into the SharePoint infrastructure. Perform the following steps to configure Antivirus settings for SharePoint 2013:

1. In Central Administration, click  Security.

2. On the Security page, under General Security, click Manage antivirus settings.

3. On the Antivirus page, you can configure the following settings:


  • Antivirus Settings. In this section, you can specify whether to scan the documents uploaded to or

downloaded from your document libraries and lists. You can also specify whether to attempt to

clean infected documents, and whether users can download infected documents.

  • Antivirus Time Out. This setting enables you to specify how long the virus scanner should run

before timing out. You can use this setting to reduce the load on the server by increasing the

value in the time out duration box. This will help improve server response times if they are

afected by antivirus scanning.

  • Antivirus Threads. This setting enables you to specify the number of execution threads that the

virus scanner can use on the server. You can decrease the number of threads to help improve

server response times if they are affected by antivirus scanning.
