    Hi,folks: Both apps are excellent programs and widely accepted by their users. Theconstant internet connection between individual computers and program's servers are very much vital to their success and effectiveness. Now a wild(perhaps crazy) thinking comes into my mind: What if (A big if, but not impossible) there are problems with their servers (such as hardware failure or software infiltration), the connection is severed, what would happen to millions users? Are they in big limbo? What do think?

    I can't speak for CyberHawk, but the worst that would happen with Prevx1 if the servers went down would be that it would treat anything new as unknown (meaning you would see prompts for anything new that tried to run on your system). Everything was, however, set up to prevent the scenario you describe. That kind of thing is taken very seriously, and every measure possible has been taken to make sure the servers are always available.

    With that in mind, however, nothing is 100% foolproof. The difference is in how the company reacts

    Cyberhawk does not require you to be online to receive full protection. It is a behavior blocker, which means it looks at and analyzes the behaviors on your system for signs of suspicious behaviors, regardless of whether you're online or not. If it detects something malicious it will alert you.

    Any interaction with Novatix servers when participating in the Secure Community is only secondary, after the program has already discovered what may be a new threat. That is why you can elect to not participate in the Secure Community and still not compromise your protection.

    Hi, folks: Thank both of you for clearing up this concern. I think users of both apps can sleep much more comfortable now.:cautious:
