Even if you have a properly configured Firewall, an updated and frequently used Anti-Virus, practice safe surfing, never open attachments or click unfamiliar links, you will still likely become infected
Riga, Latvia (PRWEB) December 4, 2007
Returnil is pleased to announce the release of the Returnil Virtual System 2008 for public Beta testing. This is the next step in Returnil's commitment to providing users with a long term cure for malware infections!
The security of computers connected to the Internet remains a problem. Despite the efforts of major Anti-malware companies, a high proportion of computer infections remain undetected, Internet crime continues to grow and new malware is being discovered at the rate of many tens of thousands of items per day. The situation is getting worse, proving that existing security technologies, whilst useful, are inadequate.
In June of this year, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) announced the results from its Cyber Crime Initiative called 'Operation Bot Roast' where a potential 1 million infected computers were identified in the US. Moreover, the vast majority of the victims were not even aware that their systems had been compromised and used as zombies in a Bot Net.
"Even if you have a properly configured Firewall, an updated and frequently used Anti-Virus, practice safe surfing, never open attachments or click unfamiliar links, you will still likely become infected," said Returnil VP Sales and Marketing, Michael Wood. "Why? Because Anti-virus and Anti-spyware scanners are not able to cope with the enormous volume of new malware; estimated by recent surveys to be more than 30,000 new items appearing each day."
The Returnil Virtual System provides an altogether different and highly complimentary level of defense. It is designed to protect computers from all types of software, downloads, websites or anything else that might harbor viruses, spyware and other malicious programs. How does it achieve this?
Returnil virtualization technology clones a computer's System Partition and boots the PC into this system rather than native Windows, allowing users to run their applications in a completely isolated environment. Hence the session and all activity, malicious or otherwise, will happen in the virtual environment, not in the real PC environment. If the PC is attacked or gets infected, all the user needs to do is to simply restart the PC to erase all changes. After restart, the system will be restored to its original state, as if nothing ever happened. All of this without sacrificing computer performance or usability while helping to reduce technical support intervention and the need for routine maintenance.
New in Returnil Virtual System 2008:
- Redesigned, intuitive, and more mature User Interface.
- Choice between RAM and disk caching.
- Selective file and folder change commit while using System Protection and Session Lock.
- Total session save.
- File and Folder list Manager.
- Easier access to the System File and Folder Relocation Tool.
- Updated User's manual.
Layered security needs a stable base to be effective, and like a favorite chair, it simply will not stand on two legs. The Returnil Virtual System provides the third and arguably most important part of a true layered approach, the cure! It is time to stop the endless, performance hogging cycle of filtering, detection, and removal. Users can finally sit comfortably and start enjoying their computer.
