Today’s Antivirus and security suites are based on signature detection. This approach has lots of limitations as the it takes lots of crucial time between the instant when a threat is detected and the instant its signatures are updated into the database of the user.
Cloud Scanning to detect virus and malware takes a different approach. It is basically community based virus detection. As soon as a malware is detected in one single machine, other computers are warned and protected from that threat. All the users are not required to download and install the latest signature files every day.
The reputed security vendor Comodo has just released their own version of Cloud Scanner Utility, which is available totally free for download and use. Comodo Cloud Scanner is designed to be an easy to use tool that will scan your system for malware and suspicious files.
