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.
In this paper we look at 3 new approaches that can make antivirus effective and practical again, including client/cloud architecture, behavior recognition, and journaling and rollback
Together, these three approaches represent a major rethinking of antivirus technology, a major shift in antivirus that creates a new type of technology that is able to detect and counter today’s Malware.
