  • Hi, 

    The deeper function of the said tool can't be shared here as it's confidential. However, it’ll quarantine the files - and if agreed, delete the file on the system. If a ransomware attack and files are modified, those won’t be detected as they’ll be recognized as artifacts. The tool will trigger on malicious files and intend to remove them safely
