How much does an expanding virus database impede the anti-virus’s search for malicious objects?
Virus databases do indeed get larger with each update. But Dr.Web solutions use the most cutting-edge anti-virus database format so that as the virus databases get bigger, scan speed is not reduced.
Moreover, because the latest technologies are applied to Dr.Web solutions, the size of the virus databases can be reduced. This is because they exclude entries containing information about malicious programs that are automatically detected with the help of the newest technologies.
