Tray application

Our tray application (icon) is used to notify you of your device's status. It also makes accessing your account on the portal quick and easy. The Segira icon is located in your system tray or notification area, usually at the bottom right of your screen. You may have to expand the system tray or notification area with the up or left arrow to see the icon. Our icon will always have Segira's castle logo with varying colors or display additional features to quickly indicate the status of your device as described below. The icon as seen here shows a green castle to indicate that your system is being monitored and fully protected by Segira DataGuard.


The Segira tray icon may change at times. Depending on the state of your device it will take on any of the following images:

This is what you will see right after the tray application has been started and no device status information has been obtained yet. Usually you will see this default icon for very short periods of time only.

This is what you want to see. It indicates your device is actively being monitored and protected from malware.

Your device has no internet connection or the Segira cloud isn't reachable at the moment. This may be quite normal for a laptop if you are travelling or have disabled your wireless radio or unplugged your network cable. While your device is offline, requests and messages to and from the server or the portal will be queued up and passed on as soon as the connection has been reestablished (you don't need to be logged into the portal for this to happen).

No service
Something is wrong! Segira DataGuard may not be running correctly and your device may not be protected. Please reboot your system or restart the Segira DataGuard Core system service (SegiraSvc) to see if this resolves the issue.

While a device scan is in progress the Segira tray will display an animation of this image.

Context Menu

If you right-click the Segira tray icon a context menu will appear. Clicking on:

About Segira will open a dialog box and give you some basic information about the installed Segira DataGuard product.

Manual Overrides (see Run Time below). If the menu item is grayed out, there are no analyses pending.

Open portal will open your default browser and take you to the 'Manage Device' page for this device (assuming you are logged in; otherwise it will direct you to the login page first) where you can manage your device and run scans, view and change settings and see a list of quarantined files. See Manage Device help for more details as well as the help text below.

Active Protection

At runtime, one of several Segira DataGuard windows may pop up at the bottom of your screen to inform you of some unusual events that may need your attention:

Manual Classification Overrides:
This window will be displayed at the bottom right of your screen and contains a list of applications and libraries whose analysis is pending or ongoing and has taken longer than usual to complete. This may happen if your device is offline (as depicted here with the yellow Segira castle) and you try starting a new app from a USB stick, or there are several new libraries trying to load at the same time or your internet connection is slower than usual or down. We stronly recommend you ignore this list and wait until Segira has analyzed the files in question, at which point the entries will disappear again and app execution will resume normally (unless a malicious file is blocked). You can also close the window via the Hide . If you cannot wait for Segira's analysis, you can manually decide what to do with each app/library: click Allow to allow it to run or Block to block it from running temporarily. Note: Once Segira's analysis arrives, it will override your manual decision for future app starts.

Ransomware Protection:
Segira DataGuard continuously monitors applications' bahavior. If an app shows signs of ransomware like actions (i.e. too many files that don't belong to the app are modified), a Segira-orange window will pop up at the bottom left of your screen and you will have to decide what to do next with that app. Similar to above, click Allow to allow it to continue running and make changes to your files or click Block to terminate and block it from being started again. Note: Your desicion is final and cannot be undone right now.
To view a list of already modified files (and to undo changes, if desired), click the provided link in the window. See Vault help for more details.

Alternatively, if a boot sector is being modified by an unknown app, a similar window as described above will be displayed and you will have to decide what to do next with that app. Click Allow to allow it or Block to terminate and block it from being started again. Note: Your desicion is final and cannot be undone right now.
By hovering the mouse over the app's name, a tooltip will show you the full path, process ID & the app family.

Lastly, if an app that is not digitally signed is attempting to modify a boot sector (unsigned applications should never be allowed to change how the operating system behaves, let alone starts up), Segira DataGuard will simply block that operation and have the OS pop up a notification message to let you know what just happened.
