Avira Secure Antvirus API (SAVAPI) relies upon the award winning Avira Antivirus Engine to deliver comprehensive detection of a wide range of malware including Trojans, worms, rootkits, viruses, spyware, adware, macro viruses.
SAVAPI can be used to add anti-malware protection in the following types of applications:
SAVAPI is a multi-platform technology that runs on Intel x86 processors under the following operating systems: Windows, Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD in 32bit and 64 bit versions.
SAVAPI v4 integrates the Avira Protection Cloud, a technology that detects and prevents zero-day attacks and malware outbreaks. A unique hash will be created and checked against the information in the cloud to determine whether the file is infected or not.
Depending on the configuration, any file that has not been previously scanned and verified by the engine can be sent to the Avira Protection Cloud for a deep scan with advanced technologies. This way Avira is harnessing the collective intelligence of its over 100 million users to continuously expand the cloud hosted database.
