  Anti-virus and malware detection technology

We provide the sole collection of 4 unique layers of anti-virus filtering service catching malicious code in about 2 minutes after it starts. The service can analyze the behaviour of any executive file and finds unknown viruses, worms and trojans. It uses from 4 to 9 engines in order to improve significantly the accuracy of scanning process.

The main benefits are:

  • signature-less and signature-rich techniques of searching malware - SMI! uses signature-less (statistical analysis, sandbox and heuristic analysis) as well as signature-rich (SMI! has the biggest database of virus signatures in the world, in April of 2008 it was about 1 340 000 signatures) techniques to search malware;
  • immediate reaction – SMI! delivers real-time virus outbreak protection and the unique sandbox technology;
  • proven – SMI! is protecting more than 350 000 customers whilst our Zero-Hour™ Virus Protection technology is used by more than 50 mln users;
  • multilayer – SMI! provides 4 different layers of scanning process;
  • multiengine – SMI! uses 7 different anti-virus engines providing unusual diversity and precision of finding malware.
