Avira Protection Cloud: The Real-Time Protection

Users availing services from Avira’s paid version of 2013 products are facilitated with a service named Avira Protection Cloud in the Quick System Scan.

Now the service has been enhanced with an update. Now the Protection Cloud is capable of initiating a Real-Time scan for all programs.

The Real-Time scan will check whether any unknown applications on the system are potentially dangerous or come from malicious unknown sources.

How the Protection Cloud works?

As soon as the user enables the Protection Cloud for the first time, Real-Time scan accomplishes with a digital fingerprint for the suspicious executable files on the system.

Then the results are matched with virus definitions stored on the Cloud.

If any traces of unknown or suspicious files are found thereafter; the file is uploaded for further inspection. Although it doesn’t uploads any of user’s personal documents.

The Real-Time scanning is activated by default in the Protection Cloud. Users can disable the feature according to their choice.

This feature is present in all premium products of Avira (version 2013 & 2014). The premium products are:-

  • AntiVirus Suite
  • Internet Security Suite
  • Family Protection Suite, &
  • Ultimate Protection Suite

So stay protected from being exposed to new threats from the Real-Time Protection Cloud.
