Quarantine definition

To isolate files suspected to contain a virus, so that the files cannot be opened or executed. The Symantec AntiVirus Corporate Edition heuristically detects suspect files and virus-infected files that cannot be repaired with the current set of virus definitions. From the Quarantine on the local computer, quarantined files can be forwarded to a central network quarantine and submitted to Symantec Security Response for analysis. If a new virus is discovered, the updated virus definitions are automatically returned.
