The system is designed with an Anti-Virus that is controlled by licenses to provide an AV solution featuring high speed, high performance and low delay. With this function configured in StoneOS, Hillstone devices can detect various threats including worms, Trojans, malware, malicious websites, etc., and proceed with the configured actions.

Anti-Virus function can detect the common file types and protocol types which are most likely to carry the virus and protect the network from them. Hillstone devices can detect protocol types of POP3, HTTP, HTTPS, SMTP, IMAP4 and FTP, and the file types of archives (including GZIP, BZIP2, TAR, ZIP and RAR-compressed archives), PE , HTML, MAIL, RIFF and JPEG.

If IPv6 is enabled, Anti-Virus function will detect files and protocols based on IPv6. How to enable IPv6, see StoneOS_CLI_User_Guide_IPv6.

The virus signature database includes over 10 million signatures, and supports both daily auto update and real-time local update. See Security Policy.
