Preventing data loss

caused by unauthorised modification

This component is not available in Dr.Web Anti-virus for Windows. Today an anti-virus alone is not enough to protect a PC. All the Dr.Web for Windows protection components are available in Dr.Web Security Space.

Compare with Dr.Web Security Space

By insidiously penetrating a system, modern-day malware programs can modify, delete, or encrypt data. Some of them will then demand a ransom to restore the data.

The Data Loss Prevention feature will help prevent folders containing files from being modified and/or deleted. Enabling this feature for folders you’ve selected does not interfere with your ability to work with your files.

This feature is disabled by default since users need to configure it first. This is very easy to do: go to the Data Loss Prevention settings, and add any folders you want to protect to the list.
