A user may wish to increase performance by lowering the levels of compression scanned within a compressed file.
A user may wish to increase security by increasing the levels of compression scanned within a compressed file.
1. Within the SEPM, navigate to Policies
2. Select Virus and Spyware Protection and edit the policy you wish to apply
3. Select Administrator-Defined Scans and navigate to Advanced Scanning Options
4. Under the Compressed Files tab, it is possible to alter the number of levels to scan from 1 to 10 levels deep of compressed files within a compressed file for threats.
NOTE: While performance increases may be negligible by decreasing scanning within compressed files from the default value of 3, increasing past 3 may lead to degraded performance. Please test performance within your specific environment before moving to production
