Immunet released Protect Free 2.0, the latest version of the real-time anti-virus software for Windows.
Immunet Protect is designed specifically to protect consumers and their social network against threats in real-time. Unlike traditional security products, this solution is compatible with conventional anti-virus to provide added protection. It improves the detection of threats on any Windows PC by combining the speed of cloud computing with the benefits of Collective Immunity and has been in active use by over 250,000 beta users since August, 2009.
Each time a virus is blocked on one computer in the Immunet Community, all other PCs are instantly protected from the same virus. This collaborative approach leverages “strength-in-numbers’ to grow stronger with each new community member.
At least two out of five PC users will catch a virus this year, while 50% of consumers worldwide continue to have inadequate or outdated antivirus protection. Immunet Protect’s integrated Community feature allows members to extend virus protection to their most trusted friends and family members. Once shared, members can view the protection status with those contacts who have also installed the product, giving them confidence when sharing information online. Community members can view the total protective power of their network, indicating how many viruses they have collectively blocked.
Traditional antivirus products take 1-14 days to gather, analyze and deliver updates, while today’s viruses breakout and expire long before then. Immunet has designed an anti-virus solution that does not require updates and is low on resource usage. Immunet Protect is up to 35 times smaller than traditional products:
- Small download – Immunet Protect is less than 10MB to download
- Fast install – Immunet Protect takes about 30 seconds install
- Low CPU usage – Immunet Protect uses minimal CPU resources
- Low Memory usage – Immunet Protect uses minimal memory resources.
