PC Pitstop made numerous improvements to the new engine. Super Shield 2.0 improvements include,
- Enhanced signature based detections
- Enhanced hash based detections
- Enhanced DLL detections
- 100% internally developed and implemented eliminating our reliance on Vipre’s black list engine
- New script based detections which block malicious scripts run through Power Shell, wscript, cscript, MSHTA, and runDLL before they execute.
The potential for our new engine was enormous, but we first wanted to prove it in independent tests. In June 2016, we submitted the new engine to the venerable and well respected Virus Bulletin RAP test. They ran their tests in August 2016, and we received the first in December 2016.
