Hi everyone,

After much reflection, we have decided to pull the NG technology from the client-side Avast for the being. The technology has a great potential, and it's delivering great results in our cloud-based systems - but these run in a fully controlled environment, which is much different from making it work on a myriad of Windows/PC configurations that are out there...

With that said, we have some bigger announcements to be made regarding NG and the whole engine, but I don't want to do that just now as this time, we really want to be sure there are real results that you can actually see and verify for yourself before we make any bold announcements...

The only thing I would say for now is that the whole team has been working theirs butts off to make a real difference...

Thanks
Vlk

Wouldn't a reverse NG make more sense? Analysis done server side would pose a bigger bandwidth and processing power challenge, but would also eliminate client side problems people have with NG as well as make it even more difficult for bad guys to exploit it since they can't fiddle with it on your servers like they probably still can with local installation. And you can update and modify it at any time since it would be on your servers and not on local user clients.

That's exactly what we are doing, augmented with some other goodies (tba).
I'm still not in the position of being able to give you some exact numbers, but we're quite confident that it will work quite well.

Thanks.

I understand. Looking forward to these new changes.

If NG has been disabled, why is the process AvastVirtualBox Interface running in memory?

I can't agree. It's not that useless - still detects some stuff. Of course it's not as good, but still decent enough that it shouldn't be disabled. I'm 99% sure statistics would agree with me :)
