Security Software: Myths and Marketing
Nothing stands still. Technical progress is developing day by day. Security comes to the fore, as the number of threats is growing exponentially. Let’s look at anti-virus software from a different angle, although some products of the next generation are so secretive that the differences between the old and new products often terminological rather than technological. Nevertheless, the new antivirus programs have gone beyond the limits of the main approaches to defeating malware. The ways of implementing those approaches have, of course, become immeasurably more advanced, but that progression is not the exclusive property of recently-launched products.
DAVID HARLEY wrote an excellent article, ” Next-gen security software: Myths and marketing.” In this article, he questioned the virus scan algorithm between new and old antivirus.
