ATD - Offline Scanning with Immediate File Availability rule set

The ATD – Offline Scanning with Immediate File Availability rule set is a library rule set for enabling Web Gateway to work with Advanced Threat Defense when filtering web objects in offline scanning mode.

When this rule set is implemented, a web object is forwarded to the user who requested it before it has been additionally scanned by Advanced Threat Defense, so the object is immediately available to the user.

If the scanning result is that the web object is infected, a message is sent to the administrator of the network that the user sent the request from.

This use of the scanning functions of Advanced Threat Defense is also known as offline scanning or background scanning.

When working with this rule set, you can use different views:

  • Key elements view — Allows you to configure key elements of the rules in this rule set.

    Key elements are those parts of the rules that you will most likely want to work with when configuring your policy for a particular field of web security. You can also enable or disable some rules in this view.

  • Complete rules view — Allows you to view all rules in this rule set and to configure all their elements, including the key elements.

    You can also enable or disable, move, copy, or delete any of the existing rules, as well as create new rules in this view.
