The Virus Scanner service offers malware protection in combination with the firewall, HTTP proxy, FTP, and mail gateway services. An active Malware subscription is required. For all firewall models F18 and larger, you can use both the Avira and ClamAV virus scanning engines. In order to save system resources on the smallest model F12 and to provide the firewall with malware scanning features, malware is scanned in the cloud instead of running a virus scanner locally on the firewall. Models F100 and F101 support only the Avira virus scanning engine.
