sweidre Posted March 29, 2011 Report Share Posted March 29, 2011 Hi, I wonder, what are the advantages/disadvantages as to Malware databases maintained in the computer vs. based in cloud! 1. Cloud-based database Advantages Database always up-to-date (zero-time) No big & increasing database stored in the computer Disadvantages Scan/Shield must be online only Scan/Shield will not work when Internet connection is interupted or server (cloud) is down Questions: Is connection to cloud depending on broadband width? (Up- & download speed?) Does connection to/from cloud work effeciently, if you have a dial-up modem? Can the cloud be hacked by a malicious intruder? 2. Computer-based database Advantages Scan/Shield can be done even if offline Scan/Shield will work even if Internet connection is interupted or server (cloud) is down Disadvantages Database needs frequent updating The database stored in the computer grows bigger & bigger Cheers, sweidre Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
