Hello and welcome to this video. We are going to see how to prevent malware with Falcon Host. Falcon Host uses multiple methods to prevent and detect malware. Those methods include machine learning, exploit blocking, indicators of attack, and blacklisting. This unique and integrated combination allows Falcon Host to protect against known malware, unknown malware, and file-less malware. Let’s see how to configure some of those features.

In the Falcon Host user interface, we need to go to the prevention settings. You can configure prevention features in the respond app. Once in the app, make sure that you’re in prevention. Then, click on settings. Please note that you need admin privileges to configure the prevention features on the prevention app setting page. Also note that the configuration changes are almost immediate and it only takes a couple of seconds to be updated on the endpoints.
