San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 25, 2006
PC Tools, the leading provider of anti-spyware security software today announced that it is going to offer a free Enterprise Edition of its multi award-winning anti-spyware solution Spyware Doctor.
PC Tools has built a highly substantial and profitable business providing security solutions to millions of paying customers globally. With the release of a free enterprise grade anti-spyware product, PC Tools plans to increase its footprint in corporate environments past several million seats.
Market analysis performed by PC Tools has shown that many corporations have inadequate anti-spyware protection and many are either unprotected or rely on freeware consumer anti-spyware products that do not include enterprise management features, such as Microsoft® Windows Defender.
PC Tools’ approach is to provide corporate customers with a free, highly scalable and manageable enterprise anti-spyware solution that leads the market in terms of technology and effectiveness. Once the advantages of the PC Tools enterprise solution have been assessed, optional plug-in features and services are available to further protect the corporate environment through one management console.
PC Tools’ CEO Simon Clausen said: “The enterprise security space is a highly competitive market with the likes of Symantec, McAfee, Computer Associates, Trend Micro, Webroot and more recently Microsoft. But we found we were still being approached by corporate IT professionals, who use Spyware Doctor on their home and office computers for anti-spyware protection, requesting an enterprise specific version with our world-leading technology. We are pleased we can now provide them with a much more effective solution than they are currently using but without the usual upfront costs and lengthy budgeting process. We can do this because the unique architecture of the PC Tools enterprise solution allows it to dramatically shift the way enterprise security software is distributed and sold.”
With over 100 million downloads of its combined products, and winner of numerous worldwide Editors’ Choice awards, including the best AntiSpyware of 2005, PC Tools continues to successfully surpass its competition with pioneering technology that satisfies the demand for a more secure online experience. The free edition of PC Tools Spyware Doctor Enterprise is available for up to 500-seats per company. Additional seats and functionality can be purchased. Find out more at Spyware Doctor Enterprise.
