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. By default, this engine is enabled for virus scanning policies.

Its major features include:

  • Detection of zero-day threats

  • Detection of embedded exploit code

  • Detection rules for known vulnerabilities

  • Enhanced parsers for handling file deformities
