Calling antivirus scan via API

Created: 22 Feb 2012 • Updated: 23 Feb 2012 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

I work for a banking institution that's developing a new Service Oriented Architecture and we are evaluating the opportunity of adopting an antivirus product in order to scan incoming files.
We are investigating the possibility of calling a scan engine (to be defined) through a Web Service interface.

What Symantec products are callable by API in order to start a virus scan?
Does Symantec Scan Engine export Web Service interfaces, or does it export other types of interfaces such as CLI or API?

Thanks for the support,

Symantec Scan Engine does have an SDK that can be used to interface with it to scan files as well as a command line scanner tool for testing.

I have attached the software developers guide and the implementation guide for you.
