About Advanced Threat Scan Engine

The Advanced Threat Scan Engine (ATSE) uses a combination of pattern-based scanning and heuristic scanning to detect document exploits and other threats used in targeted attacks.

Major features include:

  • Detection of zero-day threats

  • Detection of embedded exploit code

  • Detection rules for known vulnerabilities

  • Enhanced parsers for handling file deformities


Because ATSE identifies both known and unknown advanced threats, enabling ATSE may increase the possibility of legitimate files being flagged as malicious.
