Spy Sweeper Digs Deep for Rootkits

Already among the most respected names in spyware defense, Webroot Software raises the bar with Spy Sweeper Enterprise 3.0. While the most advanced rootkit detection features still need improvements in breadth and stability, the overall detection features are nonetheless miles ahead of any other enterprise grade product available today.

With Version 3.0, which was released in June, the SSE client agent now uses kernel-level drivers to peer deep within client operations. With this new architecture, SSE is able to conduct bare-metal disk scans, indexing disk contents while bypassing the Windows API and then comparing the results to what Windows sees to identify rootkits and any malicious payload contained within.
