ICAP Server

To determine the threat name, risk rating, and category of URLs extracted from ICAP requests, Deep Discovery Analyzer sends the URL information to Web Inspection Service (WIS) and Web Reputation Service (WRS).

To determine potential threats in files, Deep Discovery Analyzer sends executable files to the Community File Reputation service that scans the files and sends executable and script files to Predictive Machine Learning for further analysis. Administrators can enable or disable ICAP scanning using the management console. If ICAP scanning is disabled, Deep Discovery Analyzer is unable to parse requests sent by the ICAP protocol.
