Clam Engine Use?


Recommended Posts

Hi stabbtt,


It is used for on-demand scanning as well as Real-time protection.


Clam is one of the engines that we use: we also have SPERO and ETHOS as well as TETRA (if Plus user), in addition to our cloud 'database' (so to speak).


All of the engines are used in both Scanning and Real-time protection (assuming they are enabled), but not all the time: if one of the engines marks a file as 'definitely clean' or 'definitely malicious', it might not be necessary to attempt all the engines - which would be resource intensive. (depending on the file and engine, more than one engine might need to confirm this before an action is taken).
