Use exclusions to improve performance

ESET LiveGuard Advanced is capable of automatic analysis; a user can decide to exclude files and locations from the submission process such as sensitive data or trusted files or locations. By excluding files and locations, you can decrease the load on your network components. A high number of submitted files can cause a slowdown in network components (e. g. Proxy) and delay the delivery of analysis results. Follow the 3 step guide below to decrease the overall number of submitted files and improve the performance of your system.



Always be very careful when excluding a location from ESET LiveGuard Advanced submissions. The exclusion can pose a security risk to your system. Always consider possible implications and attack vectors.
