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.
To modify the notification message, open the Web console and go to Notification > Client User Notifications.
Configure and apply Real-time Scan settings to one or several clients and domains, or to all clients that the server manages.
To configure Real-time Scan settings:
Networked Computers > Client Management > Settings > Real-time Scan Settings
On the Target tab, select the check boxes to enable real-time scanning for virus/malware and spyware/grayware. If you disable virus/malware scanning, spyware/grayware scanning also becomes disabled.
During a virus outbreak, Real-time Scan cannot be disabled (or will automatically be enabled if initially disabled) to prevent the virus from modifying or deleting files and folders on client computers.
Configure the following scan criteria:
Specify Scan Exclusions.
Click the Action tab to configure the Scan Actions OfficeScan performs on detected security risks.
If you selected domain(s) or client(s) on the client tree, click Save to apply settings to the domain(s) or client(s). If you selected the root icon, choose from the following options:
Apply to All Clients: Applies settings to all existing clients and to any new client added to an existing/future domain. Future domains are domains not yet created at the time you configure the settings.
Apply to Future Domains Only: Applies settings only to clients added to future domains. This option will not apply settings to new clients added to an existing domain.
