Beta Versions Of The New Titanium Antivirus 2005, Platinum Internet Security 2005 and TruPrevent Personal 2005 Now Available

Panda Software now offers users the beta versions of Titanium Antivirus 2005, Platinum Internet Security 2005 and TruPrevent Personal 2005, three new solutions aimed at protecting the IT systems of home users, professionals and small businesses.

Titanium Antivirus 2005 and Platinum Internet Security 2005 use the most advanced technologies to protect computers against all kinds of Internet threats, and include the new TruPrevent Technologies, the most intelligent technologies to combat unknown viruses and intruders. TruPrevent Personal 2005 is a solution designed for users with other manufacturers’ antivirus products installed who want a second line of defense like that provided by the TruPrevent Technologies, making it the essential complement to any antivirus protection.

TruPrevent Technologies represent a leap forward in techniques for dealing with Internet threats, as they replace the traditional concept of reacting to new viruses with a new approach based on intelligently preempting the virus, anticipating the problem. This means they can block new generation viruses such as Sasser or Mydoom that infected thousands of computers in just a few minutes.

The combination of traditional security systems and antivirus protection with the new TruPrevent Technologies has created a new benchmark in levels of security against unknown viruses and intruders. Just like a good detective, TruPrevent Technologies analyze suspicious behavior in programs and automatically and intelligently block them with no need for human intervention and without having to ask users any questions. This characteristic also makes the new technologies simple to handle, making the solutions even more user-friendly.

Titanium Antivirus 2005, Platinum Internet Security 2005 and TruPrevent Personal 2005 include the following TruPrevent Technologies:

– Behavior-based virus detection. Detection and blocking of unknown worms and Trojans on the basis of analyzing the behavior of processes executed on the computer. This involves monitoring any processes that are launched, and blocking them if they are dangerous. This technology makes it possible to stop infections like those caused by malware such as BugBear, Nimda, Klez, SirCam, or LoveLetter, even if these have not previously been identified.

– Malicious network packet detector. This technology is able to detect and block packets with malicious content whenever they attempt to enter or leave a network computer. It also protects services against attempts to exploit vulnerabilities, acting as a complement to other technologies. This would have prevented epidemics such as those caused by SQLSlammer, Code Red or Sasser.

– Buffer overflow protection. These vulnerabilities are now common in many applications and they are one of the most widely-used ways of launching attacks against IT systems. Such attacks are based on over-running part of the memory used by the application with more data than it can hold. So once attackers know the quantity of data needed to overflow the buffer, they overrun the memory with executable code containing the attack code. TruPrevent Technologies protect against this kind of vulnerability.

– Definition of security policies. These are applied to the programs running on the computer and block access to certain resources.

Platinum Internet Security 2005

Based on the most advanced technologies, Platinum Internet Security 2005 protects the Internet connections of small businesses and professionals against viruses, worms, Trojans, hackers, spyware, spam and dialers and thanks to TruPrevent Technologies, it can also detect unknown viruses and intruders.

Platinum Internet Security 2005 automatically scans inbound and outbound email, file downloads and web pages visited. Its Ultrafast scan engine exhaustively scans information with a minimal drain on system resources. This is complemented by SmartClean2 technology to repair the damage inflicted by virus attacks.

Thanks to its latest generation personal firewall, Platinum Internet Security 2005 keeps out hackers and the malicious programs they use, turning computers into a fortress against all IT threats.

Platinum Internet Security 2005 protects user privacy with its anti-spyware technology, blocking programs that snoop on users’ Internet habit in order to target them with spam or even steal confidential data like passwords. What’s more, it neutralizes dialers, programs which redirect modem connections to premium rate toll numbers without the user’s permission. In addition, its effective anti-spam system will prevent inboxes from being saturated with junk mail, and its web content filter stops users from accessing inappropriate or time-wasting content online.
