Important Capabilities of Comodo Free Antivirus

Among present-day cyber threats, the threat of zero-day malware is deadly. Traditional antivirus solutions provide protection based on definition-based detection systems. Hence they are successful at detecting ONLY known malware. They cannot detect zero-day malware. Traditional antivirus solutions allow all files except the detected malware. Unknown files are allowed through, and if they are malware they can cause severe damages.

Comodo Free Antivirus is the only antivirus that provides protection against all new viruses through a Default-Deny Posture. It allows only safe applications to run. And all unknown applications are run in a container. A cloud-based verdict of good or bad is obtained from the system and only if it is good  the file is allowed, or else it is deleted.

Comodo Free Antivirus is part of the Comodo Internet Security solution that provides 360° protection against internal and external threats by combining the powerful free antivirus, packet filtering firewall, and HIPS - an advanced host intrusion prevention system.
