Advanced Memory Scanner

Advanced Memory Scanner works with Exploit Blocker to strengthen protection against malware designed to evade detection by antimalware products through obfuscation and encryption. In cases where ordinary emulation or heuristics might not detect a threat, the Advanced Memory Scanner can identify suspicious behavior and scan threats when they reveal themselves in system memory. This solution is effective against even heavily obfuscated malware.

Unlike Exploit Blocker, Advanced Memory Scanner is a post-execution method, which means that there is a risk that some malicious activity could have been performed before it detects a threat; however, in the case that other detection techniques have failed, it offers an additional layer of security.
