Features of Cloud Antivirus
Simple, easy to use interface :
- Control of all aspects of virus scanning is now easier than ever with Comodo Cloud AntiVirus. It’s sleek design provides fingertip access to all major settings and there’s no complex configuration or steep learning curves.
- In fact, our main interface has just three, easy to understand statuses:
- Secured (green): No threats dectected and all protections are enabled
- At Risk (red): Simply click the “Fix It” button to remove threats or repair problems
- Game Mode (blue): Protection continues but all all alerts and notices are suppressed
- You can also quickly find key information like how many applications are running in the sandbox:
- ... and one click of the ‘Settings’ button lets you configure CCAV to work the way you want it to:
- Whether you are an IT novice or an experienced user, Comodo Cloud Antivirus makes it easy to implement the highest strength protection.
- CCAV's real-time scanner constantly monitors all files and processes on your computer for potential threats. If you launch a program or file which creates destructive anomalies, then the scanner blocks it and alerts you immediately. Protection begins the moment you start Windows so viruses are stopped in their tracks before your computer is affected.
- Comodo’s real-time protection is also the most accurate around because we scan files with our fast, cloud-based servers. These contain the very latest virus blacklists, so you don’t have to wait for updates to download to recieve protection against the newest threats.
- Did you know traditional antivirus software can only detect around 40% of the viruses in circulation at any one time? Comodo Cloud Antivirus protects you against the other 60% by automatically isolating all unknown files in a secure container called the sandbox.
- The sandbox is a security hardened operating environment for unknown applications (those that are neither trusted/safe nor definitely malware). Applications in the sandbox are executed under a carefully selected set of privileges and write to a virtual file system and registry. This delivers the smoothest user experience possible by allowing unknown applications to run and operate as they normally would while denying them the potential to cause damage. Zero-day malware is simply locked away instead of being allowed to run amok as it would in any other antivirus.
- You can also run any application you choose in the sandbox. For example, you might want to sandbox your internet browser, so you aren’t in danger from viruses downloaded online:
- Comodo Cloud Antivirus (CCAV) provides unrivalled protection against zero-day threats by automatically running unknown files inside a sandbox. But what do we do to evaluate the behavior of these sandboxed files?
- Viruscope is an advanced behaviour analysis technology that monitors sandboxed processes and alerts you if they take actions that could threaten your security. It uses a sophisticated set of behaviour ‘recognizers’ to determine whether or not the actions of a file in the sandbox are malicious.
- Our real-time antivirus protects you against known threats, while auto-sandboxing protects you against unknown threats. With Viruscope on top, you also get proactive identification of brand new malware.
How does CCAV work?
CCAV uses a 'default-deny' security architecture to totally protect you from all types of malware.
When an application is executed, CCAV will first check to see if it is from a trusted vendor. If not, it will attempt to find a trust-rating for the file in our cloud database. If the file has a rating of 'malicious' then it is quarantined immediately. If the file has a 'safe' rating then it is allowed to run as normal. If the trust rating is 'unknown' then the file is run inside a secure environment called the 'sandbox'.
A sandboxed application has no opportunity to damage your computer or access your private data because it runs isolated from the rest of your system. In the meantime, Comodo's Valkyrie system will test the file's behaviour in real-time on our cloud servers so we can evaluate whether or not it should be trusted. Unlike traditional antivirus solutions which rely on signature-based detection, CCAV ensures you are totally protected from new, zero-day malware, including ransomware.
Does CCAV use the same sandbox technology as CIS?
Yes, CCAV uses the same groundbreaking sandbox technology as our CIS product. It features:
- - Virtualization of harddisk access (no ransomware can encrypt your files)
- - Virtualization of RAM access (no unknown file can access the memory of other applications)
- - Virtualization of Windows Registry access (no unknown file can make changes to the Windows registry)
- - Virtualization of COM Interfaces (all access to critical COM components is virtualized)
