What is cloud-based antivirus?
Instead of installing an antivirus setup in a single netbook to attack against spyware and malware, sending the data/file to the server or network to analysis or quarantine the data remains more helpful in the battle against malicious threats. This type of anti-virus will protect each netbook that are connected to the network by creating a global community among friends, families and relatives.
It is developed by researchers at the University of Michigan, a new cloud-based approach to antivirus (AV) to provide a higher degree in detecting malware than traditional antivirus software. Nowadays, antivirus installed in netbook are less effective against malware and malicious threats. The threats and virus are very difficult to calculate and it takes more time to detect such malwares. To resolve this, ClamAV provides anti-virus protection with an in-cloud network service to disable the threats. It uses a light-weight host agent which runs on end-points that identifies new files and sends them to a network service for analysis.
