Hi:

    we have always disable email related functions(they cause troble) since endpoint AntiVirus V4 and V5.  endpoint AntiVirus V6 add web protocol scanning. I have tried to test it at my PC, and it gave me headache once.(although automatically cured by patten update few days later).

 

   I wonder if files-system level blocking is enough for virus, especially ransomware?  or I need email/web protocol support?

 

   thanks a lot for help!!

AFAIK without web protocol filtering ESET Live Grid(Provides quicker protection against 0-day viruses) will also be disabled for downloads.

Also there's a URL blacklist inside virus database which blocks known malware URLs, without protocol filtering you can still get infected when new undetectable malware are downloaded from these URLs.

 

In general it should be enabled as long as there's unrestricted web browsing on the target computer.
