(NOTE: SEP clients can either be "managed" or "unmanaged/self-managed."

Additional details about changing the "Scan files when" Option:
Scan when a file is accessed or modified: Scans the files when they are written, opened, moved, copied, or run. Use this option for more complete file system protection. This option might have a performance impact because Auto-Protect scans files during all types of operations.
Scan when a file is modified: Scans the files when they are written, modified, or copied. Use this option for slightly faster performance. *Note: This option may permit threats to be executed from any removable media that is inserted. Please ensure proper steps are taken to avoid this.
Note: The setting "Scan when a file is backed up" applies only to files that are backed up. Auto-Protect scans the files that are restored from backup regardless of this setting.
