    I don't see why. CIS is a fw/HIPS with many features, not a simple av.

    antimalware seems a much more appropriate forum for CIS since as already stated, its not just an AV, its a HIPS, Firewall, and AV, so it is a broad antimalware program. not like avast free for example which fits better in the antivirus section to see the difference in their scopes of coverage.

    According to your argumentation all the internet security products, norton is, kaspersky is,... shouldn't be there. But please come back to the topic.

    actually ur right, i dont think most suites should be in the AV section, i guess people are just used to calling those mainstream brands as just AV's no matter what, but ur right this threads about CIS 5 not the sections :p

    Traditionally, Norton, Kaspersky etc, started out as pure antivirus. Comodo started off as a firewall, but quickly switched to HIPS as it's main form of protection. That's why all posts related to Comodo have been in this forum so far.

    Just because an antivirus component has been added, doesn't mean that mods should start moving topics. If everytime a program added a new type of defense component topics would be moved, this forum would get messy very quick.

    The AV component is more than 2 years old.
    What's the difference? the past?

    Windows didnt have interface at the beginning, should we include windows 7 in the OS's without user interface?

    So is. « If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. »: replace " it " with CIS and " duck " with HIPS. :)

    I'm not sure what Lordraiden wants... Either way, he can PM a moderator, who I'm sure will give his thoughts due consideration.

    Hello Everyone,

    We are very excited to announce that COMODO Internet Security 2011, COMODO Antivirus 2011 and COMODO Firewall 2011 have just been released!

    What's New In COMODO Internet Security 2011?

    THANKS! COMODO would like to thank the beta testers whose feedback made this release possible!
    - NEW! Extended spyware scanner and improved malware cleaning
    - NEW! Cloud Based Antivirus Scanning
    - NEW! Cloud Based Behavior Analysis
    - NEW! Cloud Based Application White-listing
    - NEW! Game Mode
    - IMPROVED! Application Control
    - IMPROVED! Default Deny re-engineered to improve application compatibility
    - IMPROVED! Application user interface

    Cloud Based Infrastructure:
    2011 family of products(Yes COMODO Firewall too!) are now armed with cloud based file rating technologies. The cloud computation, enabled by default, is used for a variety of purposes.(Do not be surprized if COMODO Firewall gives you a malware alert!!!).

    With cloud computation;

    * Cloud based Whitelisting: Safe files and trusted vendors are now easily identified. The concept of “Trusted Publisher� is now cloud based.
    * Cloud based Anti virus: Malicious files are detected even if the users do not have an up-to-date antivirus product or an antivirus product at all.
    * Cloud Based Behaviour Analysis: Zero-day malware can be detected INSTANTLY by COMODO’s cloud based behavior analysis system CIMA(Comodo Instant Malware analysis).


    Extended Spyware Scanning
    COMODO’s vision and focus has been about “keeping a clean computer clean� from early days. Now that We have achieved that COMODO is focusing on “cleaning an already infected computer�. This is why we extended the spyware scanning in COMODO Internet Security 2011 and COMODO Antivirus 2011 and now include a new spyware scanner which is capable of scanning the windows registry and computer disks for the signs of malware infection.
    This new scanner is implemented to improve the detection and successful cleaning rate of already infested systems.

    Game Mode
    2011 family of products are now gamer friendly security applications. When they are put into the game mode, the operations that can interfere with users’ gaming experience such as alerts or resource intensive virus database updates, scheduled scans are suppressed.

    Stronger and Smarter Application Control
    2011 family of products have a highly smart application control mechanism which extends the functionality of the previous versions.
    The new application control provides the users the ability to lockdown their computers such that only the known good applications can be executed.
    The new sandbox introduces a new default application isolation level, partially limited, which improves the compatibility with many windows products.

    Nowadays, a lot of malware come in other forms than standalone executables. For example, some come in the form of visual basic scripts while some come in the form of java binaries. When they come in such forms, they are executed by “interpreter� applications such as wscript.exe or java.exe etc.
    2011 family of products can identify such applications heuristically and detect the real file behind the requests of “interpreters�.

    Is the best suite that you can find for free. You can test it, I still couldn't find a malware able to bypass it.
