Summary

This article expounds on the enhancements of Trend Micro Apex One On-Premise regarding the self-protection feature after applying Patch 5 (Build 9565).

Details
Public

The following notable changes are in response to threats that actively attempt to disable Security Agent protections:

  • Self-Protection is enabled by Default and can no longer be configured:
    • This maximizes protection uptime and resiliency against programs attempting to disable anti-malware protection.
    • There is Always-On Self-Protection.
    • The following settings will be removed:
      • Protect Security Agent services
      • Protect files in the Security Agent installation folder
      • Protect Security Agent registry keys
      • Protect Security Agent processes

      Patch 5

  • There is a new option for the Server Self-Protection feature:
    • Full Mode (new): Server Self-Protection feature will include Ransomware Protection, which protects documents against unauthorized encryption or modification.
    • Performance Mode (default): This offers the same protection scope as the original settings prior to the Patch 5 enhancements

      Patch 5

 

After applying Apex One Patch 5, self-protection (disabled) settings configured via Apex Central Policy will be ignored.

To align this new specification, Apex Central Critical Patch build 5334 or above will also remove the Self-Protection options from the policy settings.
