Ransomware Shield

I have number of network folders on a NAS which are connected as a standard mapped network drive in Windows 10.

Does the Ransomware Shield also monitor malicious activity on those files and folders? In other words, e.g. if  a ransomware attack was to trying to modify those files, would the Ransomware Shield block that activity?

Thanks!

If those files were modified from another machine in the network that is not running ESET with Ransomware shield, the ransomware could not be detected. The Ransomware shield monitors running processes and not just files on disks.

Great, thanks, got it. So the ransomware shield would kick in no matter where files are located, as long as the malware process runs on the machine that has ESET installed? Thanks for clarification.

This setting should be enabled by default but you should verify it is nonetheless:

Ensure that "Network drives" is selected in Real-time file system protection 

With Network drive protection enabled, the ESET Real-time scanner will be able to trigger detection on an infected workstation, preventing the ransomware process from encrypting the drive. See Real-time file system protection for more information.
