    Although I don't expect this request to be achieved (because it has been here since 2016), I have found this link on the Plesk Support site:

    https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/12377222917655-Is-it-possible-to-use-ClamAV-with-Plesk-

    Question

    Is it possible to use ClamAV with Plesk?

    Answer

    ClamAV antivirus standalone installation is not supported by Plesk.

    The feature is yet to be implemented in Plesk, take part in our product improvement by referring to this link.

    The top-ranked suggestions are likely to be included in the next versions of Plesk.

    Maybe we can still "patiently wait" for it, but I have lost any faith by now...

    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.

    Some reasons:
    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 is a Free antivirus, provided by the package manager of many Linux OS, and can be compiled using the sources that we can download. This is a good solution and doesn't need much resources.

    I am waiting this feature last 3 years. I hope the Plesk Developers confirm soon this feature, because this can be a great new service on Linux Servers.
