No – HP Sure Sense is not a replacement for conventional antivirus solutions. HP recommends running HP Sure Sense along with Windows Defender or other AV solution. Signature-based antivirus solutions are virtually 100% effective against malware for which they have signatures and provide a strong complement to HP Sure Sense, which is highly effective at protecting against never-before-seen malware. The system performance impact of HP Sure Sense is very light, so there is little reason not to employ a strategy of layered security with both antivirus and deep learning.

At this time, HP Sure Sense will be exclusive to select HP Business PCs, Workstations, and Retail Point of Sale PCs.

HP Sure Sense will be manageable by the HP Manageability Integration Kit, as are our other HP security solutions.
