    Given you have a choice, Sandboxing or In The Cloud ability.

    Kapersky 2010 has the ability to sandbox, as Prevx will in the fall. Is this more important from a security standpoint or is the ability to scan for new malware with the Cloud ability.

    If I were to be using a suite, I would have to say Sandboxing in my case. Even with "Cloud" technology, it is still basically scanning for sigs or behaviors. If you are the first one to encounter a new malware you could be comprimised. However with Sandboxing your actual system would be "hopefully" protected by the Sandboxing.

    I believe both are very important. Kaspersky for example use them both

    Sandboxing is my choice, but in reality, it boils down to how well either technology is implemented and maintained.

    I would prefer the sandbox feature.

    ITC is easily my choice. The one developed by F-Secure :thumb:

    The flip of a two headed quarter should be able to determine this "Sandboxing or In The Cloud ability" dilemma for you quite nicely.:D

    If per chance the flip ends up Sandboxing - Well I guess I'm more comfortable.:isay: :doubt:

    IMHO in the cloud. Because if there's a file I want to save and run ITC is the easier way to confirm if it's safe.

    Hi Sjoeii. It's just they were one of the first ones to 'develop' the technology. DeepGuard

    Not true, I believe Agnitum developed the idea a few years back with firewall permissions, your rule set could be compared against their database and changes could be pushed out if your settings were not safe, I forgot what they called it though, but it isn't a new idea. Hell they might not even have been the first, just the first company i was aware of doing such a thing.

    I never said that FS created that technology :cautious:

    When it comes to ITC, I trust them better than any other company.

    ImproveNet (http://www.agnitum.com/support/improvenet/description.php). I believe that's what you meant?

    Trjam,

    I do not like the OR.

    The ideal "security" application would

    Have smart heuristicss/behaviour blocking (like PrevX's AGE/Heuristics option)

    Should not bother users with suspicious files, but put them in a quarantaine sandbox, in a transparaent way like DefenseWall does

    Next it should gather forensics and check the cloud on the suspisious file, for known malware, like Hitman Pro does

    WHen known Malware, blast away the file away, when uncertain run it through automated analysis (like Panda does), when proven good, free it out of the policy quarantain, when malware blow away.

    All without bothering the user

    Just my 2 cents

    Kees! I was wondering where you were my friend. As for your response, I totally agree and in the fall Prevx will offer just what you asked for. Ooops, did I say that.;)

    Behavior blocking technology is the most interesting for me (Threatfire kind of approach before any other) and my humble opinion is that it is a technology that will mark the next 5-10 years in antimalware software development. If I have to choose between "in the cloud" and "sandbox" as a part of security suite, I choose "in the cloud" because, among other things, it is a question of time when will be a malware that successfully bypass sandbox protection. At that time, everyone of us will need a program that will be able to effectively detects and eliminates malware on the first place.
