This Silo feature scans files for malware before downloading to a user’s device. Files saved to Silo’s Cloud Storage will not be scanned. If a user is allowed to download a malicious file by policy, it will be delivered in a zip archive.
When you download a file within the Silo browser, the Storage Manager opens. Click the Save button.
The “Save File As” window opens, click the Save button. The malware scan begins.
This pop-up message informs you that Silo is scanning for malicious files.
If you do not have permission to download a malicious file, this warning appears.
However, if your administrator enables the ‘notify but allow download of malicious file’ permission, the following warning appears.
At this point, you may click the Cancel button to stop the download, or, click the Download button to accept the risk.
Example of the malicious file download.
To set the Malware Scanning policy, open the Admin Console panel.
