This option allows blocking files that are encrypted or protected by a password.

Activate heuristic analysis

Heuristic analysis is a method used to detect new viruses as well as new variants of known viruses, and is based on the assumed behavior of a program in order to determine whether such a program is a virus.

This method is not to be confused with statistical analysis, which operates by looking up a repository of known viruses.

Heuristic analysis therefore makes it possible to detect viruses that have not yet been referenced in an antivirus engine vendor's repository.

This option is not supported on SN160(W), SN210(W) and SN310 firewall models.
