You can optimize the file scanning that is performed by the File Threat Protection component by reducing the scan time and increasing the operating speed of Kaspersky Endpoint Security. This can be achieved by scanning only new files and those files that have been modified since the previous scan. This mode applies both to simple and to compound files.

You can also enable the use of the iChecker and iSwift technologies that optimize the speed of file scanning by excluding files that have not been modified since the most recent scan.

To optimize file scanning:

  1. In the main application window, click the Application settings icon in the form of a gear wheel. button.
  2. In the application settings window, select Essential Threat ProtectionFile Threat Protection.
  3. Click Advanced Settings.
  4. In the Optimization block, select the Scan only new and modified files check box.
  5. Save your changes.
