Cerberus provides a number of unique benefits:
  • A major benefit of Cerberus is that it is a signature free malware detection solution. This means that it is designed to find malware which is programmed to alter or mutate its identity to avoid detection while it is installed on your computer, or when it moves from one computer to another.
  • Cerberus is working all of the time. It does not depend on running scans periodically.
  • Cerberus targets some of the most dangerous malware that plagues consumer and business users alike – self-mutating and self-propagating worms and other malware that behave like worms. Self-mutating means that the malware is programmed to change its identity to make detection much harder. Self-propagating means that the malware duplicates itself to infect other devices to which your computer becomes connected.
  • Cerberus is easy to use. In fact, you can install it and forget about it. If Cerberus needs your attention, it will let you know but typically, it can run and do its job without bothering you at all.
  • Cerberus benefits you through added protection should you fall victim to a phishing attack (where the attacker tempts you to invite it in by clicking on something you believe is valid).
