From this October, consumers will enjoy advanced protection against new, unknown threats with F-Secure Internet Security 2007. Building on F-Secures fast response to new threats, the new product now features a number of remarkable new and enhanced features to further strengthen its leadership in reliability of protection in the data security market. The new features make it easier for customers to take care of the wellness of their PCs, and to protect their families and their most valuable digital assets.
The risk of previously unknown zero-day threats being able to do damage is greatly reduced through the new F-Secure DeepGuardTM technology. Instead of just analyzing new programs once when they enter the system, F-Secure DeepGuardTM also will persistently monitor the behaviour of software in a real-time mode, scanning for suspicious program behaviour 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 DeepGuardTM 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.
