What Does Content Vectoring Protocol (CVP) Mean?Content Vectoring Protocol (CVP) is a protocol specification for filtering the data that crosses a firewall in anti-virus servers. CVP is used to scan data that's moving out of a firewall into an external scanning device.
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.
