How it works?

If we transfer a large amount of data how does McAfee works to scan it. What would be its impact on sever/workstation/infrastructure.

Re: How it works?

Hi,

McAfee ENS On-Access has an option i.e. Scan when copying between local folders. This is by default switched off by default. Please read more about the option below.

Scan when copying between local folders Scans files when the user copies from one local folder to another.

(Disabled by default)

If this option is:

  • Enabled — Items in the destination (write) folders are scanned.
  • Disabled (default) — Items in the destination (write) folder are not scanned.

In both cases, the scanner also scans the source (read) items unless:

  • The process is trusted so that the scanner doesn't scan when it opens files.
  • The source file has been previously scanned and the result is in the scan cache.

 

Thanks
