    I believe it's their own in-house engine.

    No one knows - but they say that they have their own engine - and I must say it has very good detection ratio :p

    None I think, since it's not an Antivirus:)

    Edit: Isn't it a little more like Prevx?

    It's more default/deny. It does have heuristics and cloud av.

    So it's a cloud based Antimalware product with Heur detection just like (Prevx) but BP has included a default/Deny solution as well, basically.

    Or am I missing something? :)

    From the BluePoint site:

    BluePoint does not rely on outdated protection methods, such as definitions, signatures, and/or behavioral detection. Many security products rely on lists of known "bad" software; this approach will never secure your PC effectively as all viruses begin as unknown files. BluePoint Security combines the most powerful technologies, cloud antivirus + whitelisting, to secure your PC from malicious software. Complete protection utilizing a simple but extremely effective "deny the unknown" approach. This new and refreshing methodology blocks malicious software before an infection occurs, providing you with peace of mind and confidence when browsing the Internet.

    is denying the unknown giving a prompt to the user to accept or deny? :doubt:

    yeah. kind of a whitelist but there's no av in the cloud. it's more of a server to categorize files based on reputation.
