Introduction

ESET's state-of-the-art scanning engine has unsurpassed scanning speed and detection rates combined with a tiny footprint that makes ESET Endpoint Antivirus for Linux (EEAU) the ideal choice for any Linux desktop meeting the system requirements.

The On-demand scanner and On-access scanner cover the main functionality.

The On-demand scanner can be started through the command-line interface, ESET PROTECT, or by the operating system's automatic scheduling tool (for example, cron). The term On-demand refers to file system objects being scanned by either user or system demand.

The On-access scanner is invoked by any attempt to access file system objects.
