Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Avant Force, Inc. a global software company focused on leading edge Internet tools, announced the introduction of key security components valued by users of its popular Internet web browser- Ultimate Avant Browser. With the Ultimate Avant Browser 2012 features such as Online Bookmark, Ad/Popup Blocker and Auto fill provide maximum security with the speed and flexibility users require.
“Recognizing that security and privacy are our customers top concern, we have architected features into our web browser for maximum security to assure users that their privacy will not be compromised whether in the office or on the road when using Avant Browser,” said Anderson Du, chief technology officer, Avant Force.
“We know that cyber attacks on computer systems costs billions of dollars a year in lost time, data, and control over computer operations, and even though most people have full knowledge of these issues, unfortunately, many still don't take adequate measures to address the real security concerns so that’s why we have these built-in security features to address this growing consumer need,” Du said.
Vulnerabilities in any browser software can be minimized by keeping browser software updated, but will not be sufficient if the underlying operating system is compromised. Some subcomponents of browsers such as scripting, add-ons, and cookies are particularly vulnerable and Avant has addressed those issued head-on with the Avant Browser.
Avant Browser is free and available for download at: http://www.avantbrowser.com.
Avant Browser is a unique Internet utility that secures the Interent users’ browsing experience by preventing harmful malware and adware from infecting computer systems through these special features:
Tri-core rendering engine
If any one of the search engines (IE, Chrome, or Firefox) was reported to have vulnerabilities, the users can immediately switch to other safe engine, but without losing any profile data and user experiences.
Accessing bookmarks with Avant’s online bookmark service from anywhere, office, home or an Internet café has never been easier and now users don't need to worry about losing those data when re-installing windows. The encrypted stand-alone bookmarks file format also protects privacy on a shared computer.
Because some popups may contain malware, AD/Popup Blocker can efficiently clean up the web pages by blocking popup pages and filter ad content. Anyone can block any annoying content by adding to the filter with the "Add to AD Black list" command in the right-click menu.
With AutoFill, users can login a website with just one click, you don't have to type username/password in front of other people.
Avant Browser has several other security features visible to the end user. One is the option to delete private data, such as HTTP cookies, the browsing history, and the cache, with the click of a button. This lets users erase personal data after browsing from a shared computer.
The user can also protect every saved password stored in Avant Browser with a master password. This prevents malware from accessing those passwords unless the master password is known. Also, Avant Browser does not show saved passwords using password manager unlike Firefox and Chrome.
Approved in 2012 by TRUSTe, a leading online privacy protection service for Internet Privacy and Security for Businesses, the Avant Browser underwent rigorous testing and passed the security testing procedures with outstanding results.
TRUSTe is among the world’s leading provider of Secure Web Access Services. The company offers a range of services that detect, block and remove attacks launched directly against endpoints such as Man in the Browser, Man in the Middle and Phishing.
