Malware Behavior Blocking

Malware Behavior Blocking provides a necessary layer of additional threat protection from programs that exhibit malicious behavior. It observes system events over a period of time. As programs execute different combinations or sequences of actions, Malware Behavior Blocking detects known malicious behavior and blocks the associated programs. Use this feature to ensure a higher level of protection against new, unknown, and emerging threats.

Malware Behavior Monitoring provides the following threat-level scanning options:

  • Known threats: Blocks behaviors associated with known malware threats

  • Known and potential threats: Blocks behavior associated with known threats and takes action on behavior that is potentially malicious

When a program is blocked and notifications are enabled, OfficeScan displays a notification on the OfficeScan agent endpoint. For details about notifications, see Behavior Monitoring Notifications for OfficeScan Agent Users.
