Computer Safety... An Issue No Longer

Aug 26th 2010 at 5:39 AM

Have you ever been hit by a Trojan, despite having a fully updated antivirus program working on your computer?

It happens!

Anti-virus protection software is only as good as the most recent update. Before a virus or trojan, or the newest piece of malware, gets blacklisted by the AV companies, somebody has to be attacked by it.

Those "zero day" attacks get reported to the antivirus policers, and the techies get on the job to counter the threat.

But in the meantime, countless people have been infected, losing data, passwords and sometimes their identify.

Enter Emmutec

Emmutec has developed an AV protection software, called Emmunize, that has a new way of fighting online threats.

Emmunize has better results than Norton, McAfee, AVG and the others. Want to see the lab report? Click here.

Emmutec is ahead of the game. Development of the software started about 7 years ago, and Emmunize has been on the market for 2 years.

What's a Zero Day attack?

A zero day attacks refers to viruses that were launched today.

In recent tests, Emmutec stopped brand new viruses 100%. Some AV protection companies can stop a certain percentage of them, while others -- including some of the big  names -- can't stop any!

Emmutec does not use a reactive approach like most AV protection softwares.

The whitelisting used by Emmunize is quite different from other companies.

There';s a bad list of known viruses, that all programs can stop. But up to 200,000 new viruses come out every day! Emmunize has a way to stop those ones, that the other companies don't have.

Other companies assume an application is good if it's not on the bad list. That means, however, that is that one out of every 5 people using a PC today will get a virus this year. Because new, unknown viruses can, and do, slip past traditional AV software.

Emmunize's proactive protection, on the other hand, stops stop everything from executing that you don't know about.

You should always know when something is installing on your computer. You need to agree before it installs.

But of course, viruses are set up to enter your PC undetected, without your knowledge.

With Emmunize, you can much more confident that every virus, Trojan, malware or other unwanted guest will be caught and be exposed before they install.
