The Real-time protection module includes two behavioral-based detection components, aimed to enhance traditional signature-based and heuristic detection:

 

  • Bitdefender Active Virus Control is an innovative proactive detection technology which uses advanced heuristic methods to detect new potential threats in real time. Active Virus Control continuously monitors the applications running on the computer, looking for malware-like actions. Each of these actions is scored and an overall score is computed for each process. You can configure Active Virus Control to only detect and report potentially harmful processes, or also block potentially harmful processes with or without asking the user.
  • Bitdefender Host Intrusion Detection/Prevention monitors the system for suspicious activities (for example, unauthorized attempts to alter the Bitdefender files, DLL injections, keylogging attempts etc).

These components can be configured by clicking the Behavioral Scanner button on the Real-Time protection module interface.

To configure this module please consider the next steps:

  • Enable Active Virus Control and Host Intrusion Detection/Prevention by selecting the corresponding check boxes.
  • If you want to only detect and report potentially harmful processes, select Run in detection mode only. 
  • Choose the protection level that best suits your security needs. Drag the slider along the scale to set the desired protection level. Use the description on the right side of the scale to choose the protection level that better fits your security needs.
  • If you have not selected the Run in detection mode only check box, you can add rules for trusted applications. These applications will not be monitored, therefore they will never be reported or blocked. You can also choose the action to be taken on detected applications.

AVC Settings

To add a rule for a trusted application, click Add and find the application on your computer.
You can manage rules using the other buttons:

  • Remove - remove an application from the list.
  • Edit - edit an application rule.

To change the action for an application, click the current action and select the other action from the menu

NOTE:

  1. All the options presented in this KB article are available to the user only if you run Bitdefender Business Client in Power User Mode.
