Behavior Shield (AVG Business Antivirus)

Behavior Shield is an additional layer of active protection in AVG Business Antivirus. It monitors all processes on devices in real-time for suspicious behavior that may indicate the presence of malicious code. Behavior Shield works by detecting and blocking suspicious files based on their similarity to other known threats, even if the files are not yet added to the virus definitions database.
