JottiQ is a handy security tool that scans selected files with twenty different antivirus tools. You can use launch it from the file’s context menu or simply by dragging and dropping the files onto the program’s interface.
Either way, JottiQ sends the files to the Jotti website, where they’re analyzed with popular antivirus engines such as Avast, AVG, BitDefender, Kaspersky, Nod32 and Panda. JottiQ displays the results on a table, with advanced details about each scan on the right hand panel.
Besides analyzing manually selected files, JottiQ can also scan the executable files for the currently running processes on your system in just one click – an interesting scan mode you don’t usually find in other security tools.
JottiQ is simple, easy to use and quick – though the program’s speed depends on Jotti’s server workload. Luckily Jotti stores results of previous scans, which often speeds up the queue. Bear in mind though, that JottiQ doesn’t disinfect files – it only detects viruses – and that file size is limited to 20 MB.
Though it’s no replacement for a traditional desktop antivirus, JottiQ is a useful tool that provides you with an extra layer of security when dealing with suspicious files.
