When a file is submitted to the FACT system, it is analyzed and assigned a score. This value tells users at a glance if any security issues have been detected with a file.
The FACT trust score is a confidence rating based on a ten point scale. The color-coded score assigned to each file reflects the level of trust the FACT system has in the file.
file score is 0.0 – 1.9 (low trust)
file score is 2.0 - 3.9 (low-intermediate trust)
file score is 4.0 – 5.9 (intermediate trust)
file score is 6.0 - 7.9 (intermediate-high trust)
file score is 8.0 – 10.0 (high trust)
