Enable File Inspection for the Web Policy

For the Web policy, File Inspection is enabled through a ruleset. File Inspection uses Cisco's Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) as well as Umbrella's antivirus engines to scan for malicious files. Once inspections are complete, a file is either delivered or the connection is terminated and the user is served the IP of the block page.

Once you have enabled File Inspection, to monitor and review Umbrella's inspection activities, use the Security Activity and Activity Search reports.

Note: You must first enable File Inspection before you can Enable Threat Grid Malware Analysis.



By default, File Inspection is enabled.
