What is and how does Proactive Defense work

Modified on Sat, 16 Oct 2021 at 10:50 AM

Proactive Defense secures the server on a whole other level. Instead of just scanning the files for malware and/or viruses, it monitors any executed PHP script live without zero delay. This security method is special since it analyses the behaviour of a PHP script. Regular anti-virus scanners only scan for "known" viruses instead of analysing the behaviour.
