ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint is an integrated solution specifically designed for Microsoft SharePoint products running on Microsoft Windows Server in a standalone or farm configuration. It delivers effective and robust protection against various malware, viruses and other infiltrations. ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint works by protecting files stored in the SharePoint content database. User-provided files stored in document libraries, asset libraries, wiki pages, ASP pages, (JavaScript) scripts, and images that form the SharePoint site are protected.

ESET Security for Microsoft SharePoint protects your content by:

filtering during file access (on-access filter)

using the on-demand database scan (On-demand scan)

The on-access filter is run at SharePoint’s discretion, and its behavior differs slightly depending on the SharePoint generation installed. In general, an on-access filter is run when any file is first accessed, and the result of the scan is cached until the virus database version changes or sometimes elapses.

On-demand scan hierarchically crawls all the files and directories of a website the administrator selects. Files are accessed using the SharePoint object model (.NET based), which provides a unified view of all content stored on a SharePoint farm and abstracts the actual database server technology used.

Both the on-access filter and On-demand scan apply the following checks:

Antivirus and antispyware protection

User-defined rules with different condition types
