Shields run in the background without disrupting your work.
TYPES OF SHIELDS
SecureAnywhere includes the following types of shields:
The shields are preconfigured, based on our recommended settings. You do not need to configure any settings yourself unless you are an advanced user and would like to change the settings.
INFRARED SHIELDING AND WARNING MESSAGES
SecureAnywhere might display warnings to you even if you are not currently running a scan. There could be an unauthorized access to your computer even if you are working elsewhere on your computer and not currently surfing the Internet.
In some cases, SecureAnywhere takes care of the problem automatically; for less severe cases, you are prompted to make a decision about whether or not you want to continue.
To make a determination about what level of warning to display, SecureAnywhere uses a technology called Infrared. Infrared is a multi-layer defense that blocks threats very early in their lifecycle.
This is accomplished through a number of engines that work together, considering several factors:
This risk assessment affects every protection module, from the firewall to behavior monitoring to realtime protection, and eventually to website blocking as well. The end result is a set of protections that is custom-tailored to the user's specific circumstances. Sample warnings are shown below that may appear on your screen.
