Real-time Scan

Real-time Scan is a persistent and ongoing scan. Each time a file is received, opened, downloaded, copied, or modified, Real-time Scan scans the file for security risks. If OfficeScan detects no security risk, the file remains in its location and users can proceed to access the file. If OfficeScan detects a security risk, it displays a notification message, showing the name of the infected file and the specific security risk.
