Although MetaDefender Core uses a number of antivirus engines that are typically found in anti-malware products, it does not offer real-time protection for the system it is installed on.
MetaDefender Core only scans files that are submitted to it on demand. We recommend installing an anti-malware product that provides real-time protection on the MetaDefender Core server if such protection is needed.
If a real-time protection agent is installed on the MetaDefender Core server, the MetaDefender Core installation directory and the temporary directory used for scanning need to be excluded from this protection.
