    Features of Cloud Antivirus

    • In fact, our main interface has just three, easy to understand statuses:

      • Secured (green): No threats dectected and all protections are enabled
      • At Risk (red): Simply click the “Fix It” button to remove threats or repair problems
      • Game Mode (blue): Protection continues but all all alerts and notices are suppressed

    • You can also quickly find key information like how many applications are running in the sandbox:

    • ... and one click of the ‘Settings’ button lets you configure CCAV to work the way you want it to:

    • Whether you are an IT novice or an experienced user, Comodo Cloud Antivirus makes it easy to implement the highest strength protection.


      Real-time Protection


    • CCAV's real-time scanner constantly monitors all files and processes on your computer for potential threats. If you launch a program or file which creates destructive anomalies, then the scanner blocks it and alerts you immediately. Protection begins the moment you start Windows so viruses are stopped in their tracks before your computer is affected.



    • Comodo’s real-time protection is also the most accurate around because we scan files with our fast, cloud-based servers. These contain the very latest virus blacklists, so you don’t have to wait for updates to download to recieve protection against the newest threats.


      Auto Sandbox


    • Did you know traditional antivirus software can only detect around 40% of the viruses in circulation at any one time? Comodo Cloud Antivirus protects you against the other 60% by automatically isolating all unknown files in a secure container called the sandbox.



    • The sandbox is a security hardened operating environment for unknown applications (those that are neither trusted/safe nor definitely malware). Applications in the sandbox are executed under a carefully selected set of privileges and write to a virtual file system and registry. This delivers the smoothest user experience possible by allowing unknown applications to run and operate as they normally would while denying them the potential to cause damage. Zero-day malware is simply locked away instead of being allowed to run amok as it would in any other antivirus.



    • You can also run any application you choose in the sandbox. For example, you might want to sandbox your internet browser, so you aren’t in danger from viruses downloaded online:

      Viruscope


    • Comodo Cloud Antivirus (CCAV) provides unrivalled protection against zero-day threats by automatically running unknown files inside a sandbox. But what do we do to evaluate the behavior of these sandboxed files?


      Enter Viruscope.


    • Viruscope is an advanced behaviour analysis technology that monitors sandboxed processes and alerts you if they take actions that could threaten your security. It uses a sophisticated set of behaviour ‘recognizers’ to determine whether or not the actions of a file in the sandbox are malicious.

    • Our real-time antivirus protects you against known threats, while auto-sandboxing protects you against unknown threats. With Viruscope on top, you also get proactive identification of brand new malware.

    Can I use it as a companion scanner with an existing AV? I want to retire MBAM 2.x. Something like Anti-EXE based cloud AV/app could be helpful these days.
    Why do you want to whitelist SxS and comodo av directories? Any known bugs or something.

    Thanks for the info & link, Phoenix. I gave it a try and here's a couple impressions if anybody's interested…

    When you first launch a less-common program (Musicbrainz Picard, for my example) it'll take a long time to actually launch. I suspect this has to do with CAV freezing the launch until it does it's online analysis. This seems to happen with all the "cloud" AV program's I've tried, but CAV seemed to be longer than most (I don't think it has anything to do with sandboxing since the same happens with it disabled)

    More annoyingly, installing this program meant my NAS wouldn't connect properly anymore. I'd have the icon, but clicking on it would only show an empty folder. Checking the properties of the driver would show it being not connected. The only way to solve this issue would be to right click/disconnect and then remap the drive - every time I rebooted.
    Uninstalling CAV put things back to normal.

    I didn't have any inclination to bother trying to troubleshoot, so its possible there is a fix.

    Just my 5 cents…
