eScanAV Anti-Virus Toolkit (MWAV) is a popular supporting tool for malware/adware/spyware removal and removing the "after-effects" of malware infection.
eScan Endpoint Security or device control is a feature which helps customers to secure USB/Flash and other storage devices.
Low memory usage
eScan has one of the lowest memory-footprints (less than 10 MB at idle times) amongst all AV products.
Free remote support
eScan is the ONLY product in the market to provide the eScan Remote Support facility, integrated in the software, to help consumers to detect and solve malwarerelated issues, in the fastest possible time-frames.
eScan, today, can boast of the fastest scanner because, other than regular malware databases which all vendors provide, we also provide white-listing databases, which ensures that our monitoring only checks for "NEW" unknown files or modified files, and not the regular files.
Malware URL filter
These are web pages with links to applications that appear to be safe and are designed to fool the user into downloading them, like a software update, screen saver application, video codec upgrade, Fake AV, etc. Additionally, the download link delivers a malicious payload whose content type would lead to execution. eScan blocks access of these malicious websites/URLs.
It is also equipped with a Virtual Keyboard to protect the system against keyloggers. Users can use this keyboard while typing sensitive information, such as banking passwords or credit card numbers.
Protection against false positives
Due to eScan's white-listing database and with the help of Microsoft, eScan will never analyze a clean Operating System file. So the probability of wrongly detecting a good OS file as malware is close to ZERO.
Auto-detection of gaming mode
eScan is the ONLY product which features auto-detection of gaming mode. This means that when a gamer is running a popular game, the product will go into "idle" or "lowpriority" mode so that most of the CPU is given over to the gaming product.
OS vulnerability checks
Most products in the market DETECT non-presence of critical OS updates and warn the user. eScan is the ONLY product which also automatically DOWNLOADS these OS updates (from Microsoft), if necessary, and REMOVE the vulnerabilities.
Free new features during contract period
eScan is the ONLY product that gives out new features (as auto-updates) to consumers FREE of cost during the contract period. Other vendors give out feature additions as part of NEW Product releases, for which customers have to pay.
Auto-backup of critical files
eScan is also the ONLY product which provides the feature of autobackup of critical OS and Application files. The auto-backup becomes important if a new variant of a fileinfector (like Virut, Virtob or Sality) infects the system.
eScan rescue disk
eScan Rescue Disk provides you with a Windows based clean environment that helps you to scan and clean the system and fix the Windows registry changes done by viruses.
Works in safe mode
In case of infections, eScan also has the ability to scan and clean in safe mode.
