Whitepaper: Reinventing Antivirus: How cloud architecture and behavior recognition are changing the security game and making traditional antivirus obsolete

This white paper describes how new threats have stretched the capabilities of “fat client” security architectures to the limit, making it impractical to keep endpoints updated with signatures for all the new viruses. It discusses how a revolutionary approach is making traditional antivirus obsolete by replacing bloated clients and large signature downloads with:

• Cloud/client architecture
• Journaling and rollback
• Behavioral recognition of malware

These improve performance and effectively address the new threat environment, which includes protecting against zero day threats.
