Add ClamAV as module in Plesk to protect better the server. Thank you Parallels Team.
Is easy to use.
Plesk currently offers two high-quality anti-viruses and other related services like WAF. Integrating another anti-virus solution is an expensive undertaking, so we’d like you to let us know which ClamAV features are missing in anti-viruses and services already available in Plesk. This will help us properly evaluate and prioritize this request.
We require ClamAV as we have paid subscriptions to premium clamav virus signatures which we would like to use.
Yes, this would be really good!

I agree ClamAV should be added as default AV Component to Plesk.
How to Install & Configure ClamAV as a Module in Plesk on CentOS 7.2 + Plesk Onyx
to Scan incoming & Outgoing Email and FTP files which are been uploaded on server.
Server Scanning for file system.
ClamAV is normally the "default" choice. Other tools (subscription based or bought) should be optional as this is in other tools.
That's why I vote to add ClamAV as default into Plesk, as well make it default in the installer.

ClamAV is an open-source alternative, the two solutions that are offered now are subscription based and not everyone wants to spend money on this. Please make it available for free, just like the Let's Encrypt plugin.
we need a FREE alternative to paying anti-viruses

I think you mean it's Open Source. That doesn't means that somebody is forced to support something Free.
Daka Media KG commented
yes, +1 to add ClamAV. It's free!
FTP antivirus and anti malware is missing, Cpanel has this feature
Felipe Santos commented
don't forget the opensource community
Clam Av is free and a good tool
ClamAV is free!

It´s a Mail Content Scanner like amavisd, but with more secure options like extensions update, in spamassassin and clamav.
Marco Marsala commented
What are these antiviruses? I cannot find them
Juergen Trapp commented
Maybe Plesk can that integrate in Plesk FuGlu Mail Content Scanner (http://gryphius.github.io/fuglu/) + ClamAV

IMHO Parallels should not force me/us to use a paid antivirus solution if I choose to install Plesk panel on Linux servers (that most of them are free Operating Systems). Given Linux OS are providing ClamAV for free as part of software packages/repositories I think you should provide the ClamAV as part of your suite.
1. ClamAV can scan all EMail messages, that is a security requirement for any Mail Server.
2. Also, ClamAV can be configured to check FTP uploads during the process.
3. There is a PHP Extension that allow PHP Developers to scan files using just a simple PHP function, and that is a +1 when we work with uploaders.
4. ClamAV can be executed as System Daemon.
5. Plesk can provide an easy way to analyse the VHost folder as a scheduled task and send reports via email.
The other 2 solutions are expensive for small business that have chosen to use Plesk.
Clamav does it's own daily updates that doesn't mess up our websites.

We would like to have ClamAV because it is free and so more people can have a more secure server !
