Cloud-based lightweight antivirus
- Fast and lightweight
- Updates antivirus definitions based on other users' experiences
- Not embedded with Windows Explorer
- Only one scanning mode
Cloud computing seems to be quite trendy these days, so it's not surprising to find cloud-based software as well. Immunet Protect is one of those cloud apps.
Immunet Protect is an antivirus tool, still in beta, that protects your system in a more effective way, thanks to the collaborative effort of a large user community. The moment you or any other person in the Immunet community finds a new virus, all Immunet Protect users are automatically protected against that new threat in real time.
In order to be able to benefit from this community-powered virus database, you need to create a free user account in the Immunet website and then click the 'Register' button on the program's interface to register your computer.
Immunet Protect features only one scanning mode, but includes also special protection against apps being installed or launched without permission. You can turn these options on in the program's Settings menu. There's no integration with Windows Explorer though.
It's also worth noting that like Panda Cloud Antivirus, Immunet Protect is fast, lightweight, not massive or bloated at all and very gentle on system resources.
Immunet Protect is an innovative antivirus tool that follows the trend of cloud computing and protects your system thanks to the collaborative work of an online community.
