Can Transaction Manager be configured to support non-standard virus scanners like McAfee?
If so, how is this done?
No only the defined virus scanner services are supported. Please note these virus scan services are not what people typically consider virus scanners used on computers, but provide an RPC service which can be called to scan a provided file. They also need to provided automatic virus definition updates for the service.
Most security experts consider virus scanners providing a fairly basic capability against the advanced persistent threats, but this is still useful in providing defense in depth particularly against spearfishing attacks.
Developing a TM Groovy Service implementation IVirusScanService interface would be quite simple to do, and could support additional virus scanner services.
