Macros have two sides; on one hand they can be incredibly helpful for automating repetitive tasks and saving time, but on the other hand, they have a history of being the vehicles for malicious content distribution online. To guard against the less desirable side of macros, we have added a new AllowMacros feature to our Advanced Virus Scan API.
Advanced Virus Scan
As a reminder, our Advanced Virus Scan API provides 360-degree content protection with customizable rules to meet your business’s needs. The AllowMacros feature joins several other parameters such as AllowExecutables, AllowScripts, and AllowInvalidFiles to assist in protecting you and your customers. To activate these features, you simply set the parameter to false to block the potential threat.
Broad Content Security
If set to false, the AllowMacros component will shield you from threats embedded in document files such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint embedded macros, as well as other embedded content threats.
We have been adding new APIs and programming languages over the past few weeks, so we will be sharing info about those soon! Keep checking back for updates and if you have questions, never hesitate to contact our knowledgeable Sales team.
