Appian 16.1 on cloud. Virus scan for uploaded files.

I have gone through some of the forum entries and the related ones date back to 2012. So I would like to know the latest on this.

No out-of-the-box antivirus integration is available to scan files while uploading them. We can create a plugin to achieve this by using a virus scan utility that has a Java API (like Symantec ScanEngine - SSE). But my query is if this is feasible for cloud applications as well ? Because my assumption is that Appian server should have SSE running all times and a default port needs to be open through the firewall to allow communication with the scan engine. But Appian does not allow any third party software to be installed/run on cloud servers ! Any thoughts/suggestions on how to virus scan for uploaded files for applications hosted on Appian cloud ?

  • Cloud instances are subject to virus scanning. Customers are alerted about any virus identified in their instances.

    That is correct, you cannot install any third party software, so unless your smart service uses an API and connects to the outside world to process the scan without any software being installed in the Cloud environment, it will not be allowed.
