, a leading Internet security organization, announces the release of its Internet Security Manager 2011 software. Comodo® Internet Security 2011 (CIS 2011) offers unparalleled malware prevention together with powerful central administration features for businesses with dozens to thousands of PCs. New in version 2011 are behavior analytics and fully integrated cloud scanning.
Comodo Internet Security™ Complete 2011 guarantees protection of PCs against viruses and malware through Comodo's patent pending Default Deny Protection™. This groundbreaking system uses a combination of firewall, antivirus, host intrusion prevention, automatic sandboxing and behavior analysis to create an impenetrable shield that identifies safe, unsafe and questionable files. Also included in the Complete version is livePCsupport®, allowing users to instantly contact a human support technician whenever they require assistance with a computer problem. Uniquely, Comodo guarantee that their product will deliver on their promises by providing each customer with a $500 warranty to pay for repair costs should their PC become infected while under the protection of CIS 2011.
Businesses of all sizes are increasingly targeted by hackers, with a disturbing trend of attacks directed at specific personnel or groups, such as corporate finance staff with access to electronic banking systems. Starting in mid 2009, small businesses, local governments, educational institutions and not-for-profit organizations began reporting staggering financial losses due to malware attacks. These mounting losses are due in part to weaknesses in conventional PC security solutions that have long relied on a "blacklisting" approach that blocks only known threats from executing. Because most threats are unknown at the initial point of contact, they are unlikely to be blocked by conventional security software. Coupled with the fact that many users do not keep their computers or security software regularly updated, it's no surprise that businesses continue to encounter financial loss and other problems stemming from malware infection.
Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo's CEO and chief security architect said, "The cost of ineffective PC security in the business community is staggering. In addition to direct financial losses due to cybercrime, businesses are increasingly burdened by high IT staff costs to remediate malware infections and administer security software, increased equipment costs to replace infected PC's, and losses to employee productivity due to slow or unavailable PCs."
Abdulhayoglu explained, "As a result, businesses are actively seeking better protection. Through its unparalleled ability to prevent virus and other malware infections, Comodo offers businesses what they really need, at a fraction of the price they're currently paying for an ineffective product."
New in Comodo Internet Security 2011:
Application Whitelisting - CIS 2011 provides a usable application white list control.
Spyware Scanner and Improved Malware Cleaning - CIS 2011 adds to the formidable arsenal of protection technologies offered by its predecessors by providing a new spyware scanner which is capable of scanning the windows registry and file system.
