)-- “AVAST Software leads the security software industry, as such, we are happy to add avast! 7 Internet Security to our growing catalogue of innovative and essential software,” said Nelson Branco, co-founder and COO of Banyan Software. “At Banyan, we are excited to combine our e-commerce experience and dedication to customer service with AVAST Software a.s. best-in-class security software.”
The new avast! 7 Internet Security suite brings the benefits of virtualization technology to the individual PC. Thanks to its Sandbox and SafeZone features, all computer users have easy access to applied virtualization.
Online Safety and Privacy
avast! Internet Security makes online safety and privacy easier than ever. Web surfers have one-click access to browser sandboxing, allowing them to completely isolate the browser – a frequent target of malware – from the rest of their machine. New control options prevent sandboxed apps from taking screenshots or video captures. Users can also decide what private files, such as recent documents or recently typed URLs are blocked or read-only for virtualized applications. Users also have easy access to the SafeZone – the special environment for financial transactions.
Silent Firewall and Antispam/Anti-phishing Filter
avast! Internet Security is the only avast! product with the Silent Firewall and Antispam/Anti-phishing filter. The Silent Firewall restricts network access to a user’s computer according to three basic trust levels – with preset lists of acceptable sources and destination ports – while allowing for more customized settings for advanced users. Anti-phishing was added to the previous antispam plugin for Windows Outlook, weeding out counterfeit sites before they get to the users’ email box.
