Pretty simple... this is a request thread. First take a look at the article found here: http://community.norton.com/t5/Nort...et-Security-2010-Download-Insight/ba-p/113827 That's only one component using their cloud-tech., but a important one as most malware comes through the internet, as we all know - this what the component keeps track off. Now, being only one component, we've almost the whole suite working with the cloud created by Symantec, as the software is working more and more with its individual components as a full-fledged team, but the important thing in this case is that the article should give you an idea how it works. So what's this about? Well, I know there are a bunch of people here that like to test different security software against malware to see how they do, so here's my suggestion... as this seems to be "flawless" - all the new files are prompted on and recommended to be stopped till further analyzis or data has been added to the cloud - what about testing if it really is through a VM? You can choose from their IS or AV on the following link: http://www.symantec.com/norton/beta/ I personally don't do malware sample sets and such - believe me, otherwise I would put this baby to the test on a VM myself - but since that's the case, that's the reason I put this request-topic up. I really wanna see if this approach works in the real-world, simple as that. Basically, you need to RUN the malware, as it works just like Prevx - it analyzes and checks what's run, downloaded, etc., in real-time - the strengths are in there. Sure, you can find some things with signatures and the heuristics, but the real strength of this new product-line lies in its real-time protection. So, happy testing guys. I hope I'll see lots of people who would actually like to test and do this, cause I personally think it would be REALLY interesting.
