    Hi! Experts

    Sorry for disturbing, I want to confirm will SRX550M antivirus engine works offline? it seems SRX550M only have sophos antivirus engine presently and I found some words in Juniper KB:

    "Sophos antivirus uses a small set of data files that need to be updated periodically. These data files only contain information on guiding scanning logic and do not contain the full pattern database. The main pattern database, which includes protection against critical viruses, URI checks, malware, worms, Trojans, and spyware, is located on remote Sophos. Extensible List servers maintained by Sophos."

    Thanks for your support.

    I think you are reading that correctly that live internet access is needed for the Sophos features to work.

    For Sophos firewalls themselves have the same requirement.  Sophos does have an "airgap" license option but it is only available with internal approvals so cannot be had generally.

    so Juniper doesn't have a private network (without internet access) antivirus solution presently, right?

    That would appear to be the case.
