Application fingerprinting may become important than virus signature files
Prevx is a leading player in “application fingerprinting technology” which is likely to become critical in the future. It is getting increasingly difficult to maintain adequate security with regular updates of virus signature files and probably anti-virus engines on individual PC’s.
Tech World has a story on the acquisition by John E Dunn, with the title “Antivirus scanning becoming inadequate, says Webroot CEO”, link (website url) here.
Webroot sent this out as a tweet today with a condensed URL, which did not convert when I pulled it up. That hasn’t happened before. That tiny link was this.
