Apex One has an Assessment Mode that allows you to evaluate items that Trend Micro detects as spyware/grayware and then configure the appropriate action based on your evaluation. For example, detected spyware/grayware that you do not consider a security risk can be added to the spyware/grayware approved list.
When in Assessment Mode, all clients managed by the server will log spyware/grayware detected during Manual Scan, Scheduled Scan, Real-time Scan, and Scan Now but will not clean spyware/grayware components. Cleaning terminates processes or deletes registries, files, cookies, and shortcuts.
In the Anti-spyware Feature dialog box, you can choose whether to enable Assessment Mode and then click Next to continue with the program installation.
Configure Assessment Mode to take effect only for a certain period of time by specifying the number of weeks as shown in the following screen.
After the installation, you can change Assessment Mode settings from the web console through Networked Computers > Global Client Settings > Spyware/Grayware Settings.
