Content Vectoring Protocol (CVP)
Definition - What does Content Vectoring Protocol (CVP) mean?
CVP scans files for viruses or other malware as they pass through a firewell. It also creates a client-server relationship wherein different firewalls all share the same content validation server. This allows one content validation server to collect incoming files from multiple firewalls if they have been flagged as being suspicious.
CVP simplifies the deployment of anti-virus software and content blocking products with firewalls.
