This allows you to have full protection without having the need for a constant internet connection. The internet is only required during initial installation to register your device with the management console and when DeepArmor releases a new update. This allows for full DeepArmor protection regardless of an internet at your location.
DeepArmor does provide some offline protection via cached malware predictions. These locally cached malware predictions do provide a great degree of protection. However, to detect/prevent the latest and most advanced forms of malware, your machine should be connected via the Internet to the cognitive analysis cloud service.
- When offline, DeepArmor will continue to monitor your system with RTFM(If set to ON in policy settings), so all known threats will be either alerted, blocked, quarantined. If an unknown file is inserted onto your the system when it is disconnected, that process will be monitored by DeepArmor and scanned when your system is reconnected. In addition, we will be adding local model deployments to DeepArmor in the next couple of quarters.
