Decoy files are a new layer of protection for Adaptive Defense 360 and Adaptive Defense, are used as bait on computers and help detect ransomware. When there is an attempt to modify a decoy file, the decoy file identifies the process as ransomware and ends the process.
To enable decoy files, in a Workstations and Servers setting profile:
- Select Antivirus.
- In the Threats to Detect section, enable the Create Decoy Files to Help Detect Ransomware toggle.
