Overview


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.
