File Anti-Virus

This section provides the description of eScan’s File Antivirus and various settings that can be configured for Real time Monitoring by File Antivirus for any malicious objects and actions to be taken on detection.

Description

File Anti-Virus is the first module of the eScan for ISS. This module monitors and safeguards your computer on a real-time basis from all kinds of malicious software as files are accessed, copied, or executed. This module includes the Proactive Scanning feature, which helps you block applications that perform suspicious activities. File Anti-Virus also includes the Block Files feature, which allows you to block or quarantine files from being accessed from local or network drives. In addition, File Anti-Virus also allows you to enable Folder Protection, which prevents users from creating, deleting, or updating files or sub-folders within specified folder list.

 

 

This page provides you with options required to configure the module. You can configure the settings from the following 2 sections:

- Actions in case of virus detection: This section lists the different actions that File Anti Virus can perform when it detects a virus infection. These actions are Report only, Disinfect, Quarantine, and Delete object. Out of these, the Disinfect option is selected by default. By default, the quarantined files are saved in C:\Program Files\eScan\Infected folder.

To add or delete files by mask, double-click Add/Delete option, and then add or delete files as required.
