Webroot Software, a provider of anti-spyware software for consumers, and Sophos, whose solutions aim to protect businesses against viruses, spyware and spam, have announced a technology partnership that intends to bring to market a new standard of protection against the most dangerous Internet security threats.
Weak security measures make consumers vulnerable. Ordinary PC users - not large corporate networks - are targeted the most by hackers due to weaker security measures, according to the latest report by Symantec.
Symantec has outlined its vision for protecting customers from the next generation of internet security threats with the help of a range of new products and partnerships - under the badge of its Security 2.0 concept.
Networking problems have kept Microsoft from distributing its latest security patches to users of its automatic update services.
The updates, released at about 11 a.m. Pacific time on Tuesday, fix a whopping 26 vulnerabilities in Windows, Office and the .Net framework. Many of these flaws are considered critical, but as of 2 p.m. they were still unavailable via many of Microsoft's most popular update services.
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.
