Spyware Overtakes all Internet Threats in 2005

(PRWEB) October 18, 2005 — Millions of dollars are being spent unnecessarily each month as North American businesses and consumers wrestle with what has become the biggest threat to security on the Internet. According to a study published last month, spyware issues now outnumber virus threats by more than 2 to 1. The same report said the average expenditure by large North American enterprises tops $130,000 USD per month.

“One of the reasons these users are spending so much money fighting intrusions is that they haven’t quite come to grips with the fact that spyware has become a dangerous, profit-driven industry,” says Jason Carvalho, Business Development Manager for ParetoLogic Inc., an international software company specializing in security solutions.

That’s why ParetoLogic has focused on a soon-to-be released suite of anti-malware software that includes real-time blocking and the ability to freeze and block all Windows processes while malware is kept out or removed from a user’s PC.

ParetoLogic’s stand-alone product XoftSpy is currently available for download from ParetoLogic.com and through Internet vendors via the Digital River RegNow platform. It is also being offered to Internet Service Providers as a fully supported install on user desktops. XoftSpy is faster—with a more comprehensive database and unlimited support—than its leading competitors. There is no subscription requirement, and it uses minimal system resources.

The new Paretologic Security Suite, set for a December 10, 2005 release, will include enhancements such as real-time blocking and an Anti-Spam component at an industry-competitive price.

In 2005, working online without real-time malware/spyware protection is a recipe for disaster. In the coming months, ParetoLogic will be unveiling powerful new technology to ensure optimal productivity and unparalleled PC security at home and in the office.
