Intelligent and effective default protection from Internet security threats



Facing an evolving set of threats, staying ahead of them has perhaps never been more challenging. While 2007 was considered the most viral year in history, 2008 saw the net’s one millionth virus. We also began seeing the end of non-financially motivated outbreaks. No longer are we the victims of pranksters, but very well funded criminal organizations driven only by profit. Dealing with the multi-headed monster of blended daily attacks takes a concerted effort. Making critical updates on the hour, rather than once a day, goes a long way to helping prevent infection, data loss, hardware damage and identity theft.
