The scan option is placed at the bottom of the window along with tools and support. Clicking the scan button you can get five different version of scan types with standard options and schedulers. The mail scan scans for any threats present in Email attachment and blocks certain types of attachments but if you want you can remove any file extension from blocked list.
Antispam is to filter the spam mails and escan uses its own firewall instead of windows default firewall. The escan cloud protection is one of the which usually other security programs define in different way. Scanning speed is moderate and in some stages we experience system slowdown. Tools link has some features rescue disk and restore default settings and USB vaccination. Quick link contains Remote support, Tools, License option and scan feature.
The user friendly interface and easy navigation is a plus about this version, compared to the previous version of 11.x the product is improved greatly and also the support. But in AV Test escan did not perform well and it is below average compared to the other products like Bitdefender and Kaspersky.
Threat detection rate is fairly good and it alerts phishing sites while browsing. The main issue we faced is system slow down and system start up time increased we feel that escan takes more control over the OS. Customer support is mainly excellent for Indian users since they have support centre in most of the Indian state also the live chat support in becoming popular for every developers and escan also offers it.
