Key Features of Kaspersky Anti-Virus SDK

Machine Learning Technologies

Today Kaspersky analyzes 99.9% of the cyberthreats using its own proprietary infrastructural algorithms powered by machine learning, greatly boosting the detection rate of both the traditional and the next-generation scanning technologies.

24x7 Malware Research Lab

Kaspersky Anti-Malware technology is supported by 24x7 expert analysis. The team of professional malware analysts and engineers constantly studies the global threat landscape and develops new protective technologies.

Kaspersky Security Network

Kaspersky products are used on millions of computers around the world, presenting a detailed global picture of how new malware evolves and circulates, where new threats originate, and how many infection attempts occur. This makes it easy to respond quickly to new threats no matter where the sources and targets are located.

Advanced Heuristics

The heuristic analyzer module emulates the object's execution in a secure virtual environment and discovers suspicious actions of executed objects.

Superior Protection

The combination of threat expertise with the most recent threat intelligence obtained from Kaspersky Security Network and cutting-edge Anti-Malware technologies ensures superior malware detection rate and instant reaction to new threats.

New Functionality

Cloud mode
Allows to reduce anti-malware bases’ size by half (100+ MB) when connected to KSN.
Trusted files scanning
Very fast scanning of trusted files (such as .msu Microsoft update packages).
Format Recognizer
Improves scanning speed by allowing the user to skip certain file formats which are unlikely to contain malicious payloads (for example, pictures).
Adware / Riskware Detection
Added detection of ‘yellow’ URLs which are not malicious per se but can be annoying or harmful if misused. This includes Adware and Riskware categories.
Scanning mode suitable for a sandbox
Added a new scanning mode which includes a notification that the scanned object is appropriate for sending to a sandbox solution. This allows using it with any sandbox solution on the market without affecting product performance.
Extended list of file formats to be scanned with KSN.
This list is now updatable via anti-malware base updates. This feature improves the detection rate.
