Windows daily scan configuration

I have just configured the Malware policy and set up weekly scans as a schedule, however I haven't found a way how to configure daily scans. Is this feature available as I can't seem to find it.

Hi @bartek -


I believe the shortest duration is weekly.  The scan is designed to look for dormant malware and the feature is there to satisfy audit requirements.  By design, the agent examines a file on execution.  It queries WildFire in real time (same feature you get in your scan) to look for a verdict.  For WildFire unknown files, it then executes local analysis, at the same time it uploads the file for execution.  Once uploaded, WildFire will perform Dynamic Analysis, and other interrogations if necessary, and will update the local verdict.
