Quarantine Management

The Quarantine Management task is used to manage objects in the ESMC Server quarantine - infected or suspicious objects found during the scan.


Enter basic information about the task, such as the Name and optional Description. Task Category and Task Type are pre-selected based on your previous choice. The Task Type (see the list of all Client Tasks) defines the settings and the behavior for the task.

Restore Object(s) and Exclude in Future - Restores the object to its original location and it will not be quarantined again.

Delete Object(s) - Deletes the object permanently.

Review the summary of configured settings and click Finish. The Client Task is now created and a pop-up window will open. We recommend that you click Create Trigger to specify when this Client Task should be executed and on what Targets. If you click Close, you can create a Trigger later. To create a trigger afterward, select the client task instance and select Run on from the drop-down menu.
