When to modify the real-time protection configuration

Real-time protection is the most essential component of maintaining a secure system. Use caution when modifying the real-time protection parameters. ESET recommends that you only modify these parameters in specific cases, for example, a situation in which there is a conflict with a certain application or real-time scanner of another antivirus program.

After installing ESET Endpoint Security for macOS, all settings are optimized to provide the maximum level of system security for users. To restore the default settings, click Default  which is located at the bottom left of the Real-Time Protection window (Setup > Enter application preferences ... > Real-Time Protection).
