Hey TM friends,
                         how are you? :)

Please, a clarification about Folder Shield.

I tried the program RanSim that simultes several Ransomware to check my Trend. 
I tried another antivirus and, Trend won 100% to 60%. 
Yeah! 

My question is: 
Trend is protecting me against Ransomware also if Folder Shield is deactivated, in fact score is 100% also deactivating Folder Shield. 
So, what Folder Shield do Exactly? 
It is an higher level of security against encryption? 

Congratulations for Antivirus+ 100% blocking ransomware samples. :)

Hello there Max Slo ! Welcome to the community!

Thank you for your feedback and trust with our products.

For the Folder Shield Feature, it is a layered protection (aside from the real time scanning) that oversees any modification of a program to a specific file (like what the encryption does). This includes the file extension, file name changes and other details of the file through a certain criteria.

We are grateful that you appreciate our developer's efforts in making our products better.
