Available for download today and available on retail shelves starting October 31st, F-Secure Internet Security 2007 makes it easier for customers to take care of the wellness of their computers and to protect their families and their most valuable digital assets
F-Secure Corporation announced today the release of Internet Security 2007. Building on F-Secure's fast response to new threats, the new product features a number of improvements in reliability of protection in the data security market.
The risk of previously unknown zero-day threats being able to do damage is greatly reduced through the new F-Secure DeepGuard(TM) technology. Instead of just analyzing new programs once when they enter the system, F-Secure DeepGuard also will persistently monitor the behavior of software in a real-time mode, scanning for suspicious program behavior and stopping activities that might pose a risk. Competing one-time-only solutions cannot offer the same level of protection as it is possible for malicious code-writers to obfuscate, encrypt or pack the code in ways that prevent the one-time solutions from detecting it - and once the file has passed it will be free to do anything it wants.
Unlike most competing proactive detection technologies, F-Secure DeepGuard uses advanced real-time heuristics and works quietly in the background. It uniquely combines several proactive technologies together, bringing an unprecedented level of protection against any previously unknown threats. In recognition of the increasing threat of spyware, F-Secure has improved its detection rates and removal capabilities by adding another spyware engine solution to F-Secure Internet Security 2007. The integration has been enhanced to include target scanning, in addition to real-time scanning and manual system scans.
Speaking about the new product, Ari Alakiuttu, Vice President of Product Marketing said: "Consumers have a right to data security products that offer them protection at every possible level of interaction with the online world. We believe at F-Secure that the latest version of F-Secure Internet Security 2007 incorporates world class features and will set the standard for all other data security products serving the home and small office segment."
