Reflexion Anti-Virus Update
Posted by Scott Barlow on 16 November 2016 02:22 PM
Greetings Reflexion Partners –
We will be upgrading our Sophos AV engine to implement more aggressive context-specific heuristics (called CXMail), which is built and maintained by SophosLabs. The CXMail family of detection strategies is purposefully designed to stop threats like ransomware that are predominately distributed using email.
CXMail is designed to be highly effective against zero-day malware attacks that are spread via emails. The technology applies stricter rules aimed at active content that is delivered in email attachments and proactively identifies polymorphic malicious documents and executables. The higher detection rate of CXMail is achieved by identifying strongly suspicious content that is not regularly associated with email communication.
As a reminder, we will also be upgrading the Reflexion Content Filtering Engines on Friday, November 18th.
Both of these changes will be transparent.
