Antimalware feature on Web Apps (App Service)

Cloud Services and Virtual Machines have an antimalware feature to protect themselves from viruses.
However, Web Apps only protects their platform, and there is no customer-facing antimalware service now.
If we develop an application which receives files from anonymous users with an upload form, we can't detect and get rid of the viruses.
We strongly request the antimalware feature like that Cloud Services and Virtual Machines do.

        We have a standard requirement to scan all incoming files with some form of AV. Currently, we have create additional infrastructure outside our app service to send the file to AV, which increases our cost and compliance burden. Having an AV option integral to the app service will allow users in our situation to keep the bytes within the app service, reducing our footprint and complexity.

        As mentioned below, we are using the AMSI Antimalware Services Interface to execute our AV scans.

        Microsoft should consider opening up the AMSI AnitMalware Services Interface now that they've upgraded the App Service machines to Windows Server 2016
