Block malicious behavior

Note If a management console is used to administer Sophos Endpoint Security and Control on this computer, it may override any changes you make here.

Malicious behavior detection is the dynamic analysis of all programs running on the computer to detect and block activity that is known to be malicious.

If you are a member of the SophosAdministrator group, you can change the settings for detecting and reporting malicious behavior:

  1. Click Home > Anti-virus and HIPS > Configure anti-virus and HIPS > Configure > Behavior monitoring.
  2. In the Configure Behavior Monitoring dialog box, select the Enable behavior monitoring check box.
  3. To alert the administrator and block malicious behavior, select the Detect malicious behavior check box.
