File-Based Protection (Traditional Antivirus)
Traditional signature and heuristic file scanning engines form the backbone of Symantec’s security solutions; these engines use dozens of techniques to scan files for both known as well as unknown threats.
Technologies designed to block attacks just as they transition from the network cable or wireless network to the computer, before they have a chance to establish residency in a physical file on a user’s computer. Also called Network Threat Protection.
Behavioral-based protection technology observes actively running threats on your computer and can terminate running programs if they exhibit malicious behaviors; this technology provides proactive protection from entirely new, previously unseen attacks. Also called Proactive Threat Protection.
