Basis of ComparisonConventional ScanSmart Scan
AvailabilityAvailable in this and all earlier versions Available starting in WFBS-SVC 6.0
Scanning behaviorThe conventional scan agent performs scanning on the client.
  • The smart scan agent performs scanning on the client.
  • If the agent cannot determine the risk of the file during the scan, the agent verifies the risk by sending a scan query to the Scan Server (for agents connected to the Security Server) or the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network (for agents disconnected from the Security Server).
    Note: The Scan Server is a service running on the Security Server.
  • The agent "caches" the scan query result to improve the scan performance.
