Real-Time Protection

Go to solution Solved by Marcos,

When a product (e.g ESET) advertises it has "real-time protection" does this mean that the product examines downloaded files for malware before they are allowed to reach the computer or are they allowed to reach the computer and examined when first tried to execute?

If you are referring specifically to the real-time protection module, it scans files that are written to a disk, read from a disk or files that are accessed / opened by the operating system or other applications. There are protection layers that come into play when files are being downloaded before they are saved to a disk. Please refer to the above page for more information about ESET technology.
