Protectstar™ Antivirus AI Android - with Artificial Intelligence against Malware

March 01, 2022
Protectstar™ today announces Antivirus AI Android. The antivirus scanner is based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) and is like a vaccination against malware.

Antivirus AI analyzes Android devices for viruses in real-time and gets even more intelligent with each scan.

Next to a firewall, antivirus software is the essential base to protect against unwanted malware and access - but so far, they have not offered absolute protection. With an innovative concept, this should now change and surpass the security of antivirus scanners.

Combining Strengths

Conventional antivirus scanners use a signature-based model, so the scanner knows what the malware looks like. However, malware changes its behavior to evade detection by traditional technologies.

Protectstar™ Antivirus AI uses artificial intelligence and continuously learns about various threats to protect Android smartphones against malware proactively. The AI scanning engine sits in the background and detects threats immediately. Unlike other antivirus apps that have to scan for threats constantly.

Vaccination against Malware

If the AI antivirus scanner discovers a new Trojan, the protection modules initiate defensive measures within seconds.

If suspicious spyware is detected on a user's smartphone in Paris, the meta-information is subjected to in-depth analysis in the Protectstar™ AI Cloud. If the malware becomes a new threat, all global users are immediately "vaccinated" against it. And all this without even having to carry out a single product update.

Protection against State Trojans?

Antivirus AI has a high level of protection that can detect even unwanted trojans from government organizations.

Of the more than 3 million Android users of Protectstar™, 22,373 are detections of such APTs (Advanced Persistent Threats) as Pegasus, FinSpy, and many more registered, which government organizations often use.

Antivirus AI succeeds in this thanks to self-learning algorithms for pattern recognition.

In addition, processes with currently over 80 million attack signatures are proactively monitored with real-time protection and Deep Detective™ technology.

Malware vaccinations stop infections.

Traditional antivirus scanners update themselves with legacy and static signature updates to detect new malware.

In human medicine, one learns that proactive protection must be dynamic to protect against the ever-increasing danger of new pathogens.

The same principle is needed today for computers and mobile devices. Protectstar™ develops vaccinations against malware, dynamically protecting against new and unknown malware through pattern recognition.

At the same time, vaccinations reliably detect modifications of malware strains.
