COMODO Cloud Antivirus is a powerful security tool that offers you up-to-the-minute protection against viruses, trojans, spyware, ransomware and virtually all kinds of malware. The program bases its protection on an online database that is constantly enriched with the latest information about new threats, however, its cutting-edge technology can protect you even against unknown threats.

One of the most interesting protection functions offered by this tool is the so-called Sandbox, which run and analyze unknown processes within a secure framework where they cannot harm your system. Then program then determines whether a process is malicious or not, based on its behavior. Even though this feature works automatically, you can also run it manually whenever you need to do so. The technology that COMODO Cloud Antivirus uses to determine a process' behavior is called Viruscope, which is designed to analyze "sandboxed" processes and compare their actions against a series of harmful patterns. The combination of both Sandbox technology and up-to-the-minute protection offers you unbeatable protection against all kinds of viruses and malware.

The program is characterized by a friendly and intuitive user interface where you can access its key functions and sections with one click. From its main window you can easily perform a traditional filesystem scan for viruses, manually run the Sandbox tool, view the program's logs and view the quarantined files. You can also enable or disable both the real-time protection and the automatic Sandbox function at any moment very easily. The program allows you to know the protection status of your system at a glance through a color code, and you can even enable a gamer mode where all the programs' warnings are disabled but the real-time and Sandbox protection continue to work in the background. Configuring the program, however, may be a bit challenging for beginners, as this is a process that requires a good level of technical knowledge.

In conclusion, COMODO Cloud Antivirus is a security tool that is worth trying. Online and offline security should be a major concern for any PC user, and this tool offers a really strong protection while being practical and easy to use. To top it all off, the program is lightweight and totally free to use.
