The Zemana team (small but strong!) pushes out new features, improvements and bug fixes based solely upon your feedback. To all our work and the improvements in ZMA that you see we give credit to you aaaaaaand a little bit to us as well.
Up until now, to be honest we haven’t done such a great job on keeping you guys informed on what we are doing and what we plan to do with ZMA.
However, we decided to change that and now we have a blog category for release notes related to all our products including ZMA as well.
Every month Release Notes will highlight all the improvements we’ve launched, so you can easily stay up-to-date on what’s new.
So, let’s see what we have done.
ZMA v1.7.8 highlights
Basically we decided to pump up our scan engine.
So, before this version everything was scanned locally. This means that we scanned all files in our own scanning engine which made it possible for users to scan all of their apps even offline which is more than great. Sure thing.
But, we had to add some wings.
This application had to fly even higher so natural result… Cloud scanner.
In order to use cloud scanning option you have to accept EULA agreement once you launch the application. In case you decline the EULA unfortunately you will be unable to access this feature. So, please make sure to accept it. You don’t want to miss it.
Ok, this is clear. Great. Let’s move on.
Cloud scanning feature is a great enhancement of our current scan engine. It improved the detection rate which is the most important thing.
So, once you are connected to the Internet we will scan with our engine and also we will scan on the Cloud. So, right now we will scan all your applications both locally and with the help of cloud as well.
What are we scanning?
We are scanning only installed applications so private files like documents, photos and similar are not scanned.
When we are scanning an application we are just scanning the logic of the applications and not the files the applications contains.
But locally we are scanning all your files with our own engine so your privacy is always protected.
We are not taking any user history in the Cloud also we don’t know which users is sending a request so we are only taking the fingerprint of the application. This is a hashcode unique for everything.
2. Easier access to menu bar
You no longer need to break your fingers to access the menu bar. We heard your bad feedback about it and we are truly grateful for that. We made it easier for you to access your licence info and settings menu on the top of the app.; What do you think about it?
3. What’s up next?
Currently we are working on Web Protection module, so stay tuned.
Happy Holidays and please share your feedback with us.
