Firewall and Host Intrusion Prevention Software Delivers Proactive Protection from Known and New Internet Attacks and Malware on Personal and Business PCs.

Privacyware (, an innovative developer of host intrusion prevention and enterprise analytics software, today announced the availability of Microsoft Vista compatible versions of its award-winning PC security software, Privatefirewall 6.0, and its entire desktop defense product line. Privacyware's PC security products are distinguished by their ability to deliver signature-less anti-malware protection and proactive intrusion defense and support both 32 and 64 bit Vista environments.

Privatefirewall is a Host Intrusion Prevention System that advances PC security by utilizing an integrated set of unique defense features including inbound/outbound packet filtering, system and application level behavioral monitoring, IP and URL blocking, and process monitoring components. Privatefirewall also evaluates WinAPI calls, analyzes a comprehensive list of system variables and monitors security-sensitive registry settings to actively advise and alert users of potential virus and spyware threats and intrusion attempts without the dependency or latency of traditional definition-based anti-virus and anti-spyware scanning solutions.
