Central Quarantine on 64-bit

Created: 04 Sep 2012 | 5 comments


I read somewhere that most antivirus products doesnt need a central quarantine server theese days. But it seems that Scan Engine 5.2.13 does?

And the one shipped with Scan Engine doesnt support 64-bit, so do I have to install a seperate server with 32-bit to run Central Quarantine, or is there a way around this?

What will you be using the Central Quarantine for?

Ok, there is a 3.6 version? I think it was 3.1 that I got with Scan Engine.

Where do I find 3.6?

I have two newly installed Scan Engine servers to scan our shares on a NetApp SAN, and the idea is to install a Central Quarantine on one of them, as I understand that Scan Engine doesn't have a local quarantine. Does this sound right?

It would be nice to have them quarantined somewhere, for example if false positives would remove importent files from the shares.

I also just read a mail that Symantec™ Protection Engine 7.0 is soon to be released, do you know how this version handles this?

SPE 7.0 comes with Central Quarantine 3.6. Before 7.0, only virus detections were quarantined. Now in version 7.0 you can quarantine malformed container detections and encrypted file detections as well as threats.
