    From the Prevx description of Prevx Edge-" Cutting EDGE realtime protection, advanced behaviour monitoring and rootkit prevention - vastly improving your defenses against all forms of malicious PC threat."

    For Prevx CSI scanner the describe it this way "Check your PC in around a minute to remove trojan, rootkit, information stealers and all other form of malware infections with this advanced scanner."

    If I understand it correctly, they are antimalware programs, not necessarily an antivirus. So, I think you are right about running it alongside an antivirus.

    Hello,
    We've developed our products to be compatible with other antivirus/antimalware solutions so that you can ideally use a layered solution as no one product protects against all threats.

    The technology behind our products is a community based analysis system which is fed with behaviors of programs, centralizing the prompt answering of a behavior blocker rather than leaving the decision to the user, as well as conventional signatures, whitelisting, blacklisting, and centralized sandboxing of samples.

    Let me know if you need any clarification, or if you have a free week ahead of you, feel free to read through the 3,478 post thread in the "other anti-malware" section :D (or just ask me whatever you want and I'll summarize it :))
