Is Benign an anti-virus program?

In the strict sense of the word, No, Benign is not an anti-virus program in the strict sense of the word. In order to catch viruses, Anti-virus products match up known viruses with a virus signature. Therefore the virus has to be known. Benign works in a way that will quarantine suspected attachments so they can't run automatically. Benign will catch all known and future e-mail viruses and worms, but cannot catch viruses downloaded from the internet or transferred from disk. Therefore it is still advisable to run an updated anti-virus program. For a better comparison of how Benign differs from Anti-Virus software, consult the graph below.
