Sophos Virtualization Scan Controller

Sophos Virtualization Scan Controller is a tool that helps with the management of scheduled scans for endpoints (both servers and desktops) hosted by virtualization software.

Sophos Virtualization Scan Controller lets you spread and thereby reduce the processing and impact of scheduled scan activity on the virtualization server. It lets you define a configuration rather than edit an anti-virus policy. It provides configuration options such as minimum wait time before a scan, maximum time taken for a scan, day and time the scan should be performed.
