First anti-malware product for UEFI

Kaspersky Lab released Kaspersky Anti-Virus for UEFI (KUEFI) – an anti-malware solution which can protect the user’s PC before the operating system even starts loading.

UEFI, or "Unified Extensible Firmware Interface", has been developed by Unified EFI Forum. It is a new model for the interface between personal-computer operating systems and platform firmware. Hailed as the ‘spiritual successor’ to BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), UEFI offers support for new technologies, improved development, and enhanced customer experience during the time after the computer is turned on but before the operating system loads.

Honest opinion after reading that article: I fail to see the significance or difference of this compared to something like Avast's boot-time scan which have been around for a long while now and nothing new.
