StarForce Technologies, a leading expert in copy protection and information security, launches an update to its Safe'n'Sec, an intrusion prevention software that proactively protects a workstation against a wide range of existing and future risks. Version 1.1 introduces new features to enhance usability and the overall performance of the program. In order to faster increase the user base of this new version, StarForce Technologies announces special discount of 15% for all SafeÂnÂSec 1.1 Plus Antivirus licenses purchased through http://www.star-force.com until April 30th, 2005.
It is a recognized fact that traditional methods in computer protection fail to successfully cope with the rapid escalation of todayÂs security threats, as modern sophisticated attacks manage to circumvent network firewalls and conventional antivirus solutions. This dangerous trend has put forth a demand for the next generation of security products that would effectively protect the system against new and unidentified hazards along with those already mapped. Addressing the issue, earlier this year StarForce has presented SafeÂnÂSec, an intelligent host-based IPS designed to form a critical part of a clever security strategy.
Unlike the antivirus and anti-spyware solutions relying on signature match procedures and thus limited to the attested malware, SafeÂnÂSec monitors in real time all processes on a PC and immediately blocks any attempt to perform a potentially hazardous action, regardless of the type and origin of the attack. Thanks to its unique analysis and decision making algorithms, SafeÂnÂSec is capable of detecting and stopping hackersÂ attacks, viruses, trojans, spyware, adware and other types of malicious applications even in their Âzero-dayÂ, while allowing the legitimate programs to run without problem.
As StarForce TechnologiesÂ CEO Michael Kalinichenko pointed out, ÂNotwithstanding the innovativeness and proved effectiveness of our approach, we believe that Intrusion Prevention Software does not eliminate the need for a good antiviral scanner and/or firewall. Additional security is something one never regrets.Â Safe'n'Sec 1.1 Plus Antivirus package comes with the well respected BitDefender antiviral database to combine two complementary protection principles in one box Â and now at a most attractive price. SafeÂnÂSec 1.1 is also fully compatible with other antiviral toolkits and firewalls present on the market. The program runs in the background and employs so little system resources it is hardly noticeable at all.
SafeÂnÂSec 1.1 is available for free trial download and on-line purchase through StarForce TechnologiesÂ web site at http://www.star-force.com at the RRPs of $ 25.00 (IPS only) and $ 29.75 (Plus AV version, after rebate). Enquiries from specialist distributors and VARs interested in reselling the shortly forthcoming corporate version are welcome.
