.. please correct me if I'm mistaken, but this didn't do so well in the AV-C test, right(?)

looking at Comodo IS (or) Avast IS 7; this is not a plant, but an overhead ? probably meant for another thread. ^_^

It didn't do so well in the testing because of how it works. Yes it has a web blocking, behavior and in the cloud AV. The other half of WSA is the monitoring portion and rollback. AV-C even said that WSA was unable to be tested in the way the perform tests. It doesn't give a good picture on how WSA protects the user. I'm saying this as a fanboy but mostly from a user that understands on how WSA works.

If a process gets past all of WSA defenses, AV, behavior and web shield, it's get places in a "monitored" group. Once it's placed in this group all changes made by that process is monitored and recorded. It stays in the group until the process is deemed trusted. That process is not allowed to make any internet connection via any outbound connection. So if it's found to malicious any and all changes are "rolledback".

It really is an interesting way of providing security.

I had been talking directly with webroot staff in facebook. They said that they don't want webroot to be included in some certain tests on AV-C or any other facility like that for some reason, classified. I guess, may be they have some new technology, of which, the implementation is still going on and they don't want that thing to become public so quick.

Webroot is a cloud AV so it can't be compared with Comodo or Avast.

Thanks for providing suck a core concept about WSA's working.

I meant to say that I wasn't being a fanboy. Even though I do like WSA a lot and used Prevx prior to WebRoot taking over.

.. @ SkyrimGuy:

Apologize sincerely .. was not familiar with that 'happy face' denotion; merely picked from the lot at the

bottom of the page.

Sorry, but I did not intend to indicate anything negative, just to "thank you" for detailing WSA's as you had. : ( :sorry:

No offense taken. Figured you didn't care for WSA. No worries.
