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.
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 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).
There are many ways that malware becomes installed on your computer and existing defenses against their entrance are not perfect. Your own well-intentioned actions may allow malware to gain entrance or it may become attached to a normally trusted piece of software. Then there are phishing attacks which are becoming more and more successful, because the enticing come-ons that are used are becoming more and more believable and less obviously malicious. If you use a thumb drive, you may also inadvertently install malware on your machine that was unknowingly downloaded to the thumb drive, or any other type of removable media.
So, Cerberus was designed to be your personal guardian to detect malicious software which is attempting to make connections to the outside for other than legitimate purposes. It may be trying to send your data to outside sites, it may be trying to spread itself to other computers, or it may be a bot that someone is using in order to launch other attacks anonymously.
If the malware that's been installed on your computer is a new variant of a known malware, or it the malware is self-mutating, as well as self-propagating, Cerberus can find it. DayZero technologies are signature-free.
