HELIOS Advanced Malware Detection System

1) What is Helios?

Helios is a patent-pending advanced malware detection system. This downloadable version is a technology preview, however it is under development to becoming a complete 
enterprise level solution to managing malware. This includes centralized monitoring, system snapshots etc.

Helios has been designed to detect, remove and innoculate against modern rootkits.
What makes it different from conventional antivirus / antispyware products is that it does not rely on a database of known signatures. 
We believe that malware, by definition, has to perform malicious actions on your system. By observing which software performs malicious behaviour, you can better detect 
malware. Thus Helios uses a 'behavioural' analysis engine as opposed to signatures. The upside to this is that we can catch malware that is 'unknown' in the wild, or for which signature 
based products do not have a signature definition. 

Helios requires Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0 to be installed. Helios Lite does not need to be installed
