Question about Anti-Virus with Sharepoint

  Asked By: Grace    Date: Jun 08    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 853

We have just begun piloting Sharepoint in our environment and are
preparing our deployment plan. I see there are several 3rd party AV
solution out there and I have some questions.

What is it that the AV is protecting? Is it protecting only the
documents, only the SQL DB, all kinds of content like site customization
data, etc? If the documents aren't stored in the SQL DB, then why can't
a file level scanner (i.e. SAV desktop) work? For example, with
Exchange I understand, the data inside the store can actually become
infected, products like Antigen look inside rather than at the file
level. Is it the same for Sharepoint?
