your a strange person, you, I hope your like not trying to promote sweden or something....

 

Hi Duncan,

I have seen many articles about computer "cloud-basing" (not only Antivirus). It seems, that many computer aspects might be based in the cloud in the future.

Immunet should be aware of this when marketing its AV product! I hope, that others will post interesting articles of "the cloud" on this thread.

Then, I have never promoted Sweden. All right, Sweden is my native country, but I have been active outside Sweden about half of my life = a sort of cosmopolitican.

What is strange about this?

Cheers,

sweidre

Hi Ritchie,

I noticed also this Chrome news! I think that Immunet should not only look upon AV defintitions storage in the "cloud" environment. It seems, that more things, can be stored & accomplished in the "cloud" instead of in the computers! What about Firewall? I think, that in USA the eyes have really started to open too see, if "cloud"- technology can be used in many more areas. Are there limitations about the "cloud."? Can all personal or commercial "privacy" & "security" be kept there?

I hope, many new interesting facts about the "cloud" should be published on this thread (topic). This was my intention by opening this thread!

Cherers,

Microsoft is reaching for the clouds as well. Geared towards business applications Microsoft has embraced cloud based technology to enhance connectivity and productivity in the workplace environment. The cloud is not just for anti-virus applications anymore!

A new app for Android gets cloud based security from Trend Micro:

Trend Micro recently upgraded its security system for desktop computers to rely heavily on cloud-based detection and protection, and now it's bringing that same network to Android devices.

(Credit: Trend Micro) Trend Micro Mobile Security for Android secures your device in four ways. It offers a "safe surfing" feature that prevents phishing attacks and illicit access to your identity and banking information. It also powers the parental controls for Web site content blocking. There's a customized blacklist for call and text filtering, and a download guard that prevents malicious or fraudulent apps from installing on your device.

 

Trend Micro is the first security company to extend its proprietary cloud-based heuristic- and reputation-based network to smart phones. The benefit of such networks initially was twofold: to allow for more responsive, reflexive security; and to allow the publisher to shrink the size of the of the desktop client. Similar desktop competitors include Microsoft's Security Essentials and Panda's Cloud Antivirus. Trend Micro's Mobile Security for Android appears to be the first time such a network has been used in mobile protection.

 

The company also has an iPhone and iPad app called Smart Surfing, which also uses its Smart Protection network to verify the safety of URLs visited on the iOS browser.

Since testing this new software, Emsisoft's Mamutu, I wanted to mention that it uses a cloud or community based approach. If a unknown application is encountered your decision to allow or deny is uploaded to the community for future reference. If the majority of people allow the application then it's automatically put into the whitelist. The same apples to apps that are blacklisted by the majority of the community.

Hi Ritchie,

When I used Mamutu, the size of its number of members or number of threats were never shown. The size of the cloud-database is very important to know, because it is the vital part. Mamutu is almost similar to Emsisoft Anti-Malware, that also have a big and fastly increasing infection database in the computer itself.

The concepts of Emsisoft & Immunet are almost similar:

1. Immunet Free (cloud-based) < > Emsisoft Mamutu (cloud-based)

2. Immunet Pro (cloud-based & computer-based) < > Emsisoft AntiMalware (cloud-based & computer-based)

One differnce: Emsisoft lacks a 3rd party AV as Immunet has ( = ClamAV)! On the other hand, I do not think, that Immunet had planned for having ClamAV; ClamAV was an effect because of the takeover of Immunetv by Sourcefire!

The competition for cloud 'services' is and will continue to explode. In my humble opinion, Immunet is going to have to take close heed to bugs, suggestions, and 'improvements' reported in these forums .. and get a version 4.0 out soon. They could 'lead' the market .. if they have a 'top notch' product.

Hi WacoJohn,

I agree, Immunet should now grasp the opportunity to develop a bug-free, reliable, and first-class cloud-based Anti-Malware (Why not develop a cloud-based firewall?) Together with Sourcefire & Google they could really attain a top position in cloud-computing with all its benefits: data storage, OS, browser etc. But, they must on the way always consider the security aspect of cloud-computing! Cloud-computing opens a new way of computer handling, so we can only hope, that intruders and other criminals can be kept at bay!

Cheers,

sweidre
