Sunbelt rolls out virtualized antimalware and antivirus defense

Sunbelt Software announced today the release of MX-V, a virtualization-based anti-malware defense app. MX-V protects systems by performing behavioral analysis of potential malware in a virtualized environment that mimics core Windows functions.

As a result, Vipre doesn’t have to rely on constant definition updates – a good thing considering the preponderance of self-mutating malware. Despite the added layer of protection, the MX-V system is still very easy on system resources (it idles at about 12mb of memory on my test machine).

Vipre also includes a secure file eraser, history cleaner, and PC Explorer – which provides a quick way to look at your hosts file, LSPs, shell hooks, browers handlers, and more.

Current users of Vipre don’t have to do anything to get MX-V running, it’s included in the latest definition update. If you’d like to give it a try yourself, Sunbelt offers a free 15-day trial on their website.
