Avira updated version released today.The company best known for its Free Antivirus program, has just made available a technical preview of Avira Protection Cloud, a new cloud-based antivirus solution that is leveraging the cloud and swarm technologies.

Avira Protection Cloud is a lightweight application that scans your computer and detects potential threats. It work based on protective cloud as follows:

  1. A list of file locations frequently targeted by malware is generated (similar to that used in a quick scan with a regular Antivirus).The list includes running processes, programs that run at start-up and services.
  2. The hash (a digital fingerprint) of each file is generated and sent to the Avira Protection Cloud, which is then categorized as “clean” or “malware”.
  3. Unknown program files are uploaded to the Avira Protection Cloud for analysis.
  4. At the beta stage, each uploaded file is scanned inside the Avira Protection Cloud using the latest technologies.
  5. Once the uploaded files have been scanned in the Cloud, the Technical Preview Client displays all available results.
