  • Sybari Antigen 8.0 for Microsoft Exchange


When you use Sybari Antigen 8.0 for Microsoft Exchange, you may notice that all the scan engines are not updated. And, in the Application log in Event Viewer, many events that indicate that the scan engines failed are logged.


This issue may occur if the following conditions are true:

  • The Scanner update occurs through a proxy server.
  • Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server is configured to use the Integrated Authentication method.

Antigen 8.0 for Exchange does not support the Integrated Authentication method when a proxy server is used. This behavior differs from earlier versions of Antigen for Exchange.
