    Hi,

    I looked at the statistics for the previous month and here are the results. :)

    The following statistics have been gathered from the cloud analysis.

    December (31 days):
    • Total queries: 288 735
    • 9 314 files per day
    • 388 analysis per hour
    • 6 analysis per minute
    It is great to see such results and statistics.

    Thank you to all the users. :)

    Regards,
    Kardo

    Which options will you keep active to gain some performance without lossing too much protection?
    Analysis modes: created objects, modified objects, active processes and on access.
    I guess leaving alone on access and active processes will be optimal.

    Hi @guest,

    Thanks for the interest. :) Sorry about late reply.

    Currently there is a plan to keep enabled the following analysis modes:
    • Created objects
    • Modified objects
    • Active processes
    On-access mode (when enabled) may decrease performance and also may cause many issues.
    There will be many changes in the next Beta version (active protection, engines and so on).

    Regards,
    Kardo

    Hello,

    I am pleased to announce that a new BETA version of Crystal Security is available. :)

    What's new in Crystal Security 3.7

    Added new Dynamic Engine

    Dynamic engine is a new in-house engine. It is based on different rules set to determine if file is malicious or not.
    It works in offline mode and does not require any database or database updates.

    Added new Settings

    - Show result based on in-house engines -
    • When unknown file is detected by Collective engine then decision will be based on other in-house engines
    • No more unknown alerts (useful for average users)
    - Do not alert - wait for cloud response -
    • File will be uploaded to the cloud (without any alert/decision)
    • When analysis are done, then there will be known result for file by Collective engine
    Improved Shell integration

    When you start right-click scan then Crystal Security shows Overview section automatically which will help to keep an eye on analysis.

    Improved User Interface

    There are several changes under Settings (Protection and Behavior) section and also on notifications.

    Improved Performance and other features

    There are a lot of other changes and improvements in many features.

    Two different types of downloads

    Download installer version of Crystal Security 3.7.0.1
    Download portable version of Crystal Security 3.7.0.1

    Please uninstall any previous version completely to avoid conflicts.

    Notice: Dynamic engine is currently enabled only in Active protection.

    Looking forward to your feedback. :)

    Regards,
    Kardo

    Make sure you check if the task was removed or not when CS starts-up so you can repair it if gets removed when the setting is still enabled for start-up :)

    Hi @Aura,

    Thank you for the feedback. ;)

    False positive detection is probably caused by Dynamic engine (it is in early-stage and may cause FPs).
    Dynamic engine will be improved with newer versions. Reported issues will be fixed in the next version.

    Regards,
    Kardo

    So is this 3.7.0.1 considered a stable version or a beta?

    Because your website shows 3.5.0.195 as stable version?

    Thanks

    FWIW ~ Crystal Security is only user interface (on my setup) that renders with cutoffs. YMMV

    Q: with Restore Selected File should I still have item listed with Quarantine Files.
    400.png
    Q: does it make sense that I can delete above bqe File. Shouldn't quarantined files be encrypted & protected from erroneous delete or escape. File has not been exonerated as far as I know.

    Um,....CS Help File, CS Documentation, CS User Guide....?

    Hi @bjm_,

    Thank you for the feedback. Sorry about late reply.
    Text-cut off issue is noticed but there is no timeframe for the fix.
    Restore Selected File should restore file to original location. Also it should be decrypted to original state.
    Quarantined file is encrypted and extension should be .cbqu If extension is not .cbqu then it is strange. I will look into it. I will add additional protection for quarantined files.
    Documentation, Help files will be added in the future.

    Regards,
    Kardo
