Length:  7 pages

Have you seen a lot of articles and blog posts with titles like “Is Antivirus Dead?” If so, there is a good reason: Traditional signature-based antivirus technology is rapidly heading toward obsolescence.

But there are new approaches that can make antivirus effective and practical again. Here we will look at three of them:

  • Client/cloud architecture
  • Behavior recognition
  • 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.
