What is Deepguard?

This discussion has a more recent version.

Issue:

What does the DeepGuard functionality in F-Secure products do? 

Resolution:

DeepGuard monitors applications to detect potentially harmful changes to the system.

DeepGuard makes sure that you use only safe applications. The safety of an application is verified from the trusted cloud service. If the safety of an application cannot be verified, DeepGuard starts to monitor the application behavior.

DeepGuard blocks new and undiscovered Trojans, worms, exploits, and other harmful applications that try to make changes to your computer, and prevents suspicious applications from accessing the Internet.

Potentially harmful system changes that DeepGuard detects include:

  • System setting (Windows registry) changes
  • Attempts to turn off important system programs
  • Attempts to edit important system files
