AppGuard is for people that realize their traditional or legacy antivirus is only effective for traditional cyber attacks (i.e., old malware). Adding AppGuard protects you even when no virus signature/definition exists because AppGuard does not use signatures to protect you.

"Not an AV.."

April 05, 2011  |  By 3oij

 |  Version: AppGuard 3.0.13

Pros

Blocks stuff really good including exploit-based memory-resident 'malware' droppers.

Cons

There is a common misconception this is an AV replacement. It only does part of what a modern-day AV HIPS does. Install it on an infected machine, or let a working-software binary-binded malware past it, and it's a 'malware' protector.

Summary

The reality is all software vendors practically ignore internet chatter unless it affects THEIR bottom lines, which forum posts and reviews&comments rarely do, so saying if it had a breach-entry and real-time ARK it'd have an tremendous edge in AV+ARK realms is unlikely to influence anything unless I'm some form of investor.

SIDE NOTE: I find humor as a software engineer and veteran security-researcher, that security solutions like this and Sandboxie hook/detour/underprivlage most syscalls on a platform, but still get logic-bombed out of with a single call to LoadLibraryA and VirtualProtectEX by VB and .NET 'malware' written by children(literally in most cases), which you can use from D.O.D. grade privileges in any process. What's sad is stealth methods that worked on them 3 years ago work today, but the authors and end-users have officially labeled it 'not a hole'.

Tell that to the 'malware' authors who are using it ^^
