Protection Components and Management Modules

Dr.Web Agent for Windows contains the following protection components and management modules:



A component that constantly resides in memory. SpIDer Guard scans processes and files on their launch and creation and detects any malicious activity.

A component that scans an HTTP traffic. By default, the SpIDer Gate internet monitor automatically scans incoming HTTP traffic and blocks transferring objects, containing viruses and other malicious programs.
