On-Access Scanning (Talpa)

Talpa is the default kernel interface for On-Access scanning. On-Access scanning functionality is built in to the product when using a supported kernel. If you are using a kernel which is not supported, or has been customized, you may be able to enable on-access scanning by compiling the required Talpa binary pack.

On-Access Scanning (Fanotify) – Version 9.x Only

Sophos Anti-Virus version 9 includes beta support for the fanotify kernel interface. Fanotify is an alternative to Talpa and also allows on-access scanning to run on any kernels from 2.6.38 onwards.

Fanotify is currently beta only functionality and as such is disabled by default. For more information, please see:  Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux v9: Fanotify Overview
