B-HAVE technology is based on a behavioral analysis in a virtual environment. It makes a virtual PC and executes and analyses files to determine whether the program is free of viruses and malware. This technology will check for known aspects that are common with malware. If no malicious behaviors are detected, B-HAVE will launch the program normally, if a problem or suspicious behavior occurs, B-HAVE will automatically put the product in quarantine.
Active Virus Control was introduced in August 2009 by Bitdefender. This technology will control each program currently running on the PC and check for any malicious behavior. It will keep a track on every action that happens and once a certain point is reached, the program will be considered as harmful. This technology will check every active application, which makes it the third layer of defense.
PHOTON Technology will improve computers speed and visibility. It was released in 2014 by Bitdefender.
Machine Learning is used to identify new malware and online threats. It analyses big data to predict any future threats.
