QuickScan online service available in Beta

BitDefender UK : 20 February, 2009  (New Product)
BitDefender is offering Beta test version of QuickScan for running online verification of processes for malware
BitDefender QuickScan is an advanced online tool used for detecting running malware. It makes use of a web based "In-the-Cloud" scanning facility to determine if files accessed by running processes are malicious.

The QuickScan online service is intended to provide an alternative to traditional online system scanning solutions, which are heavy on both bandwidth and system resources. BitDefender QuickScan checks the PC by scanning for patterns and virus signatures which have already been identified as threats.

Commenting on the development, BitDefender Chief Technology Officer, Bogdan Dumitru said, 'This beta version no longer has the engines downloaded, with any updates in tow, onto the scanned computer. The scanning engines are now left on BitDefender servers, with the local component sending only the relevant bits of suspicious files for analysis. We hope to achieve significant speedups over the traditional solutions.'

On completion of the beta programme, BitDefender plans to integrate the technology behind QuickScan into other products, drawing on the lessons learned by exposing the technology to a real-world environment.

BitDefender is constantly working to improve the technology offered to consumers, ensuring that the companys products provide complete protection against the increasing internet threats.
