It looks like a remake of Qihoo imo. I'm personally not interested in it. It has a nice new UI, but it's only bitdefender engine and I doubt that that new anti-ransomware engine is adding much more protection. I can be wrong of course, but in the past it wasn't really a great product.

Larger database - Support removing more latest stubborn malware and viruses.

Honestly, Iobit database is not literally improving and since BD signatures is included hence an obvious results for sure.

I'm wondering how Iobit's cloud mechanism actually work, as it perform poorly from numerous reviews.
