Icrontic's Editor-in-Chief Brian Ambrozy interviewed researchers who have developed new cloud computing-based antivirus technology.
"Researchers from the University of Michigan have developed "CloudAV," a next-generation anti-virus technology. CloudAV seeks to improve PC resource utilization and virus detection rates by shifting the burden of virus analysis into the computing "cloud.""
The detection engine features routines and signatures from a host of today's leading antivirus providers, boosting its detection rate to 91 percent. It's a neat technology that could have a big impact on net security.
