Just think of a situation when your system is infected by malware and you are unable to retrieve your data which does not have any backup anywhere. Do you afford to make such a huge loss by losing your valuable data by any unknown malware?
eScan includes an Auto Backup and Restoration feature that automatically takes backup of all the system files that are frequently used and stores them in an encrypted form. The feature automatically restores the clean files when eScan finds an infection in any of the system files.
This feature works seamlessly on all OS versions including the new Windows 10. Once installed, the backup feature is enabled by default and all the backup files are removed once eScan is uninstalled. It takes auto backup of all files. eScan’s distinct intelligence ensures that no back up is taken of infected files.
In case of a file getting infected with a virus, the all-new eScan restores the clean file from its back up. If an unknown virus is present, and a backup of this virus happens, in subsequent updates, it automatically removes the backup of the virus. The auto-back and restoration will also detect and take a new backup of the windows update or installed service pack files when downloaded from the Internet.
In such a scenario, the only recourse to ensure that computing resources are NOT wasted on virus scanning is to have reputation databases. eScan Auto Backup & Restore (ABR) is one step towards creating a reputation database of files on a PC. With a solid reputation database in place, eScan ends up scanning only about 5% of the files on a PC, thereby drastically increasing the performance. In other words, with a combination of eScan ABR, Reputation Database and Cloud computing, only files which are new/ unknown will be scanned.
