Fighting Biological Viruses

AV-Comparatives is now fighting biological viruses as well as computer viruses. We are proud to support research into the Covid-19 virus by donating our spare computing resources to medical research, via Folding@Home.

Understanding the virus’s dynamics using computer simulations is key to finding drug binding sites, which can be exploited to stop the virus.

This is explained on the Folding@Home website:

AV-Comparatives has one of the largest datacentres of all the anti-malware testing labs, with more than 250,000 MHz of CPU power. We are giving all our unused CPU time – about 70,000 MHz continuously – to Folding@Home.

Why not join us in the fight against Covid-19?
