Most antivirus solutions are signature-based systems. This means that when a new virus emerges, antivirus software may only detect the threat if that virus matches an existing signature - or after the antivirus vendor has had time to develop and distribute an updated signature that recognizes the new virus. This creates a window of vulnerability that can endure for hours or even days, during which time your customers business is at risk.
Robust security is essential to ward off these threats, including the use of multiple scanning engines with the appropriate technology to fight zero-day and even zero-hour attacks.
