Madsion, WI (PressExposure) April 20, 2009 -- Stumped?
Chances are, unfortunately, so are most traditional antivirus products.
That's because the way most traditional antivirus programs work. They compare a database of digital signatures of known viruses and malware against programs running -- or trying to run -- on your PC. The database often isn't updated with the signatures of the newest and unknown viruses and malware. It's pretty unsettling when you think about the fact that such signature-based antivirus programs fail to detect close to 50% of the viruses and malware within 24 hours of their release, according to a recent study by Damballa, a firm that focuses on protecting companies from targeted attacks used for organized online crime.
NovaShield, on the other hand, wouldn't be stumped. It's a behavior-based antivirus program.
Instead of relying on signature-based technology where there is a long wait, sometimes weeks, to get an updated database, NovaShield uses sophisticated algorithms to figure out whether a program trying to run on your computer is good or bad. And that's in real time -- in other words, as it's actually happening. You don't have to worry about whether your antivirus program has signatures of the most recent virus and malware in its database.
