The Avira protection cloud interface is the most simple security software interface I have ever seen. There are no menus here, no toolbars, no options, settings anything else: All you have to do is launch the program, click “Cloud Scan” and wait for the results.
During cloud malware detection, Avira protection cloud wills creates a list of locations that are frequently targeted by malware including running processes, start-up items and Windows services. Then the program will creates digital fingerprint of each file and submits the generated hash to the cloud where it is then looked-up and classified as clean, malware or unknown.
The biggest advantage using Avira Protection cloud wills be their less processing power, which the program consumes little computer system resources and the cloud security concept also ensures that virus definitions and digital fingerprints are always up to date.
