Designed to discover viruses, trojans, rootkits, spyware, and other malware on up-to-date and fully-protected computers. This is next-generation technology to fight against next-generation malware. Sophos Clean is a signatureless, on-demand malware scanner that's just 11 MB and does not need to be installed. You can run it from a USB flash drive, a cd/dvd, or from network attached storage, which is nice if malware is manipulating the installed antivirus software and its updates.
Instead of searching for typical static malware attributes, Sophos Clean looks for unethical behaviors. It's much harder for malware authors to radically change the manipulative behavior of their malware than it is to change its static properties. By combining forensic, behavior, and collective intelligence, Sophos Clean is the single most effective solution to combat new and resilient malware.
Second Opinion Scan
This isn’t your average virus cleanup tool. Instead of relying on signatures, Sophos Clean gathers actionable intelligence and examines the collected information. This signatureless approach allows the scanner to discover which files act and look like malware.
It’s designed to discover viruses, trojans, rootkits, spyware and other malware on up-to-date and fully protected computers. It searches for early-life and next-generation malware; the kind of malware that doesn't yet have a detection signature.
Sophos Clean removes persistent threats from within the operating system and replaces infected Windows resources with the original, safe versions. Reinfection attempts are proactively blocked until threat remediation is completed.
