    Default Scout IQ questions

    Any way you can say who's feed is Scout IQ? = Bit Defender?? Sophos/Hitman Pro?? Home Brew??

    If I am just surfing the net, what type of files and protocols is it looking up?

    Does it hold the page until it gets it's answer from the Scout IQ server, or if the latency is too long does it release the webpage/file hashes I would think, and let what every it wanted to scan go through un responded to?

    Say I surf to Yahoo news, and go to 2 different stories, is Scout IQ used highly in this scenario? With ads in the background and such, or is mainly used in downloading files and email attachments?

    Anything else you can add to explain it would be nice too, if you can. I know some stuff must be left unsaid.

    I would like to know this as well. One of the main reasons I am looking to deploy a UTM is to have ALL traffic scanned for malware. While it sounds like Virus Scanner does this, I would love more info on how.

    ScoutIQ is our own threat intelligence, compiled from our users.

    Anytime virus blocker does a file scan, it also does a scoutIQ lookup.
    The benefit of a cloud based threat intel is that it has global context of whats going on among our millions of users.

    Is it possible to scan all traffic (not only files with specific extensions)?
    For example: Untangle fails when I test it with http://metal.fortiguard.com because it seems not to check the complete data stream. I would like to have it check all traffic.

    Not long ago I posted regarding this test, remember? The client made me put in pfsense back, unfortunately some people tend to only believe these type of tests. Untangle failed this test for me also but in real world where I have untangle protecting my networks I find that the workstations are as clean as a whistle, before untangle was in place I always found some kind of nasty stuff

    Building a security system to pass a specific test is just like building schools to teach kids to pass tests.

    Useless.

    If you've got customers that cannot think critically, you've got customers that will continuously pay you to fix their bad decisions. Enjoy the cash flow!

    I use sophos on a test network and it scores a 17 out of 18, only reason it fails one of them is because it blockes both the clean and infected password protected zip files.

    pfsense with squid clam AV also blocks 17 but it is a toy compared to the protection you get with Untangle, I surely do not feel as secure as I do with Untangle protecting the Network
