Many ingredients are needed to make an antivirus solution stand out from the crowd: the number of detected threats, the update frequency, speed and impact on your system’s performance are among most important differentiators from an end user’s perspective.

Introducing Photon, a new scanning technology that revolutionizes the way your computer gets scanned and monitored without bogging it down. Built on top of the SmartDB technology we introduced in 2012, Photon adds a critical component in the application reputation system of SmartDB: the Cloud. In the IT security world, applications can be broken down in two main categories: those we trust and the ones we know nothing about. Photon offloads the antivirus scanner the task of processing known files that have not been altered from their original form by malware.
