A great feature of this which I have not seen before is if a user in your organization emails a user outside your domain then they are automatically added to the white-list!. An overdue notice for wares you never ordered? If it doesn't, have a look at the third party vendors to check if their product is ready for Exchange 2013. With Exchange 2013, do we need to install exchange aware antivirus on machine for scanning, are built-in mechanisms are enough. How can I protect my computer from viruses and other malware? Spamsoap is a cheap solution that works quite well for instance. We only have a small office so this solution works well. If you have a separate server on the perimeter like an Edge server processing this, that would be better in that respect. From : For your question, it's good enough, as you can do the same checkup as a rented antispam product but you need to tune it at your need and you need an Edge server for Exchange 2013 Several companies I have worked for have completely given up on the administration and bandwidth burden of running an in house mail server.
Connection filtering is performed by the Connection Filtering agent that's available only on Edge Transport servers. Would this be the same using Exchange Online Protection? That's why I've written a script to generate the list quickly and easily. The biggest issue I see is that you can't configure anything, the only thing you van configure is the update frequency and the text of the notification mail. There are currently no third party products that do this yet. If you're deploying multiple servers with the same configuration eg members of a database availability group you can use the script to generate the exclusions list off one server and then use your antivirus software's policy-based management to deploy the same settings to all of your servers. But if you do install antivirus software you need to configure it with the correct exclusions so that it doesn't interfere with Exchange Server's operations. The install process can be seen below.
The next feature is very interesting. Also, as LePivert mentioned, having an edge server with your 3rd party solution or a dedicated appliance might be better since you seem to have quite a workload to consider with 80K e-mails daily.

The Virus Filter allows you to specify how deep you scan your Exchange organization and what it should do when it finds a Virus, delete, quarantine and notify.

Exchange 2013 has capabilities although they're quite limited. Think of it in terms of having a bouncer at the club instead of making the bartender decide. We have an Exchange 2013 server, and the company that we purchased it from did an offer to also filter our incoming e-mail prior to it reaching us we also send out e-mail through them. Microsoft further disclaims all implied warranties including, without limitation, any implied warranties of merchantability or of fitness for a particular purpose. Well it's just a precaution in case a database is moved to a different path without updating the exclusions list, or if the antivirus software you're using needs to handle the exclusions a specific way. Are there companies out there that do just deliver e-mail directly to their Exchange server and use the built-in Anti-Spam and Malware protection? Both support 20K users easily. Antivirus software that is not correctly configured is a fairly common cause of many performance and stability issues with Exchange.

For us, the cost of upgrading our internet connection to handle the additional traffic dwarfs the cost of paying for outsourced spam filtering.
Viruses, Trojans or Worms spawn new variants on an hourly basis. The optimal antivirus solution for Exchange Server, however, is this: your server refuses to collect the email and it will never reach the users' inboxes or - at least - the server informs users about the possible dangers the mail might pose. Never open attachments of spam emails, never open attachments that spark even the tiniest sliver of mistrust: a notice of income tax assessment attached to a typo-ridden email? Reason behind query is with Windows server 2012 i guess we can deploy antivirus software using System center. If we change TemporaryStoragePath in EdgeTransport.
