McAfee Real Protect is a real-time behavior program that monitors your computer for suspicious activity. Real Protect utilizes machine learning and behavioral detections in the cloud to detect zero-day malware.
When running, Real Protect will run quietly in the background and display a tray icon on your system tray. This tray icon allows you to perform various functions such as stopping the protection, viewing the logs and quarantine, or to remove the real protect program.
When Real Protect scans a process it will send a behavioral trace of the file's execution behavior to the cloud where it will determine if the process should be allowed to run. Including this information is the file name, file path, process ID, event, the OS version, and a randomly generated GUID of the machine.
