My 1st impressions after some tests:
  • GUI feels slow/heavy inside the VM, don't know in a real system...
  • It uses BD engine for signatures... the on demand detection usually after malware pack is posted is slow, but after about 12 hours, even not sending the undetected samples to BD, rises until around 75% ~ 85%, not bad, but of course after 12 hours...
  • FireWall by default set in "Allow All", but I changed it to "Limited Filers".
  • There are a number of extra features oriented to small office (Application Control, Remote Managing, etc.)
  • I can't manage to work the option to "Upload Samples", when I click over the link anything happens...
  • I performed a Bonus BB test -> Medusa Locker (disabling File AntiVirus module), it failed and the system got encrypted, so I will not perform BB future tests because the BB is inside/tied to File AntiVirus module.

I forgot to add that notifications during dynamic testing were almost inexistent :unsure: only sometimes when Powershell script got blocked...

I'm finishing today testing eScan, I think was enough to check its protection capabilities...
