May 7, 2019, Bkav Corporation officially launches Bkav 2019 antivirus software integrated with Scenario Attacks Prevention (SAP) technology. Bkav 2019's artificial intelligence (AI) automatically analyzes, early detects and prevents scenario-based, targeted attacks, such as Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), ransomware attacks, cryptocurrency mining attacks.

According to statistics of Bkav's virus monitoring system, globally there are more than 1.5 million virus samples posted online every day. Most of them are scenario-based attack malware. The main purpose of this kind of malware is to maximize the exploitation of victim's information and data in order to make profit and earn money. With the huge benefits that hackers have earned, the distribution of scenario attack malware has become a billion-dollar black industry.

In Vietnam, more than 60% of the corporate network system was infected with this type of malware in 2018, causing damage to users up to 14,900 billion VND.

Mr. Vu Ngoc Son, Bkav's Vice President of Anti Malware, says: "Scenario attack malware is the most dangerous threat because of their high human characteristics. Bkav innovates SAP technology to monitor any even-smallest unusual behaviors on the computer, bringing them into the statistical, scoring system. Then, AI is used to automatically point out the imminent dangerous scenarios and command to promptly block such threats".
