Perfect task for a cloud to manage:

Quote
The overwhelming majority of the 150,000 new files it encounters every day are automatically profiled, leaving only 0.6 percent that require manual analysis by experts. The thin client approach of Cloud Antivirus was necessary, the company said, because fifty percent of the malware it was encountering on any day had a life expectancy of less than 24 hours. Static signature scanners could no longer cope with such a rate of evolution.

As well as reducing the load on the local PC to as little as 3 percent overhead, the cloud approach allowed Panda to use the malware being detected by the company and its user base in real time to give all customers dynamic protection, the company said.

Plus it's, um, free Grin
