IntelliScan is a method of identifying files to scan. For executable files (for example, .exe), the true file type is determined based on the file content. For non-executable files (for example, .txt), the true file type is determined based on the file header.
Using IntelliScan provides the following benefits:
Performance optimization: IntelliScan does not affect applications on the agent because it uses minimal system resources.
Shorter scanning period: Because IntelliScan uses true file type identification, it only scans files that are vulnerable to infection. The scan time is therefore significantly shorter than when you scan all files.
