Proof Of Concept is a widely used term to describe the feasibility of an idea. In the field of IT security, a POC is a simulation of the effect of malicious software or the principle of a security solution. The POC approach is something that is becoming more familiar as malicious software is becoming more difficult to intercept especially at the early stages before a patch has been written. Anti-virus software is now generally made up of many components that act in different ways to provide a multiple approach to detecting viruses. With such an approach, traditional testing methods are less effective and so a POC approach is adopted as a more effective alternative.
