When reading the German Federal Office of Information Security recommends Chrome on Chrome Blog, they link to best practices guide:
With the help of Google Translate, I found that they along with traditional Antivirus products like those from MS, Avira or Avast recommend a tool called ThreatFire.
I've never heard about it and on theyr home page they state:
ThreatFire is dramatically different to traditional antivirus software. Normal antivirus products usually need to have first identified and seen a threat before they can provide adequate protection against it.
By implementing sophisticated real-time behavioral analysis ThreatFire is able to stop never- before-seen "zero-day" threats solely by detecting their malicious activity.
Sounds good, especially when German's Federal Office For Information Security recommends it and that their other recommendations are quite good and I agree with them.
But i find little information about threatfire on superuser.com except that the user kai recommends it along with traditional AV.
But if it's already better than AV, should I need AV also? And what others know about this software and its effectivness?
