product details

SAV Interface


High quality anti-virus protection interface, providing server-based scanning for third-party applications.

SAV Interface™ enables users of a wide range of standalone industry-standard applications to benefit from high-speed integration with the Sophos virus-detection engine, seamlessly protecting business networks from viruses, Trojans, worms, spyware and adware.

Award-winning virus protection

All traffic entering or leaving through the third-party application - for example, web or email traffic, including compressed attachments - is checked for malware. Sophos Genotype® virus detection technology proactively blocks families of viruses, and Behavioral Genotype Protection automatically guards against zero-day threats by analyzing the behavior of the code before it executes. Malware updates from SophosLabs can be kept fully up to date across the internet.

Real-time monitoring

Compliant gateway applications can monitor email, web and FTP traffic in real time.

Automatic updates

The latest software and virus detection updates are automatically downloaded through our updating application, EM Library.

Scanning speed

Protects with no impact on end-user productivity. Scanning is 20-30 times quicker than traditional command-line virus scanners.

Simple integration

Choice of integration methods and languages to suit environment and skills.

Efficient memory usage

Uses a single multi-threading copy of the virus detection engine to process all requests.

Virus reporting

Every virus incident can be reported to the administrator, making day-to-day management even easier.
