Behavior Shield

This Article Applies to:

  • AVG Business Cloud Console
  • AVG Business On-Premise Console

Behavior Shield is an additional layer of active protection in AVG Business Antivirus. It monitors all processes on devices in real-time for suspicious behavior that may indicate the presence of malicious code. Behavior Shield works by detecting and blocking suspicious files based on their similarity to other known threats, even if the files are not yet added to the virus definitions database.

Main Settings: define what action your Antivirus takes when suspicious programs are detected between Always ask, Automatically move detected threats to the Chest, or Automatically move known threats to the Chest.

Exclusions: Configure the list of locations that are not scanned by Behavior Shield.

For more information on configuring exclusions for Behavior Shield, see Behavior Shield Exclusions.

Exclusions that you specify on this screen only apply to Behavior Shield and do not affect any other scans or Shields. To exclude a location from all AVG Business Antivirus scans, see Configuring Standard Antivirus Exclusions.
