Offline threat protection

Does TM Maximum Security purely rely on the cloud or does it offer offline protection with behaviour blocking and AI heuristic protection when not connected to the internet?

Hello @muhammadnabeelmansoor!

Trend Micro Security has offline protection, however, the program will check for updates online every 3 days to make sure that offline protection is updated.

Important security updates require an online connection.

@tm_kree​ Thanks. Does this mean if a new exploit or ransomware is executed whilst offline the protection layers of TM will help block the new malware (whilst offline)?

@muhammadnabeelmansoor  Protection from  new viruses, exploits, or ransomware will require an internet connection for real-time updates to work.

If there is no connection to the internet, will the components within TM Maximum Security prevent the harm that may occur after execution of a unknown infected pdf or similar as a source of offline protection?
