PC Tools launches ThreatFire

PC Tools launches ThreatFire
PC Tools has launched ThreatFire, its new behavioural-based consumer security software. With the new product comes the promise of a zero-day behavioural security protection for PCs that could double protection against cyber threats.

“Our new approach to malware detection is fundamentally unique. ThreatFire improves on traditional anti-malware products because its behavioural-based technology offers proactive detection, unlike signature-based technology which provides only reactive protection” said Simon Clausen CEO of PC Tools.

Typically, antivirus products are required to have first identified a threat in order to create the signature before adequate protection can be provided. For example ThreatFire is one of the only products capable of stopping the Storm threat in its tracks without a signature.

ThreatFire does not rely on signatures for protection and there is no delay in providing protection against zero-day or zero-minute exploits. It actively defends a PC in real-time against malware such as viruses, Trojans, rootkits, keyloggers or spyware by examining and monitoring the behaviour of files, background activities and processes.

“Internal testing has shown that ThreatFire’s ActiveDefense technology significantly increases and can double the protection level provided by traditional Antivirus products,” said Clausen.

The company distributed a graph displaying the extent to which ThreatFire can increase the level of protection by traditional anti-virus products (pictured)

A Free Edition is available and ThreatFire Pro, with PC Tools AntiVirus engine, is also available with an yearly subscription.
