Privacyware has announced the latest upgrade of its desktop defense software, Privatefirewall 5.0, a multi-layered endpoint security product designed to help individuals and businesses protect Windows desktops and servers from malware and unauthorized use.
The key enhancement in Privatefirewall 5.0 is a sophisticated system monitoring and anomaly detection component that delivers signature-less protection from viruses and malware and detects hacker and cyber criminal attempts to inject malicious code, install rootkits, trojans and spyware, spoof IPs, bypass firewalls and generally gain access, control and/or damage home and corporate systems and private data.
Privatefirewall 5.0 is comprised of several integrated protection layers including desktop firewall, URL filtering, process monitor, and application/system behavior modeling and anomaly detection. Privatefirewall 5.0 evaluates WinAPI calls and analyzes a comprehensive list of system variables and security-sensitive registry keys and alerts administrators to attempted malware infection, intrusion, attack, or policy violations.
Privatefirewall 5.0 addresses the Windows vulnerabilities and intrusion techniques that hackers exploit to gain access and cause damage to private systems and data. Privatefirewall 5.0 models and monitors system and application behavior to identify and block activity characteristic of known malware, hacking, phishing and other threat types without the need for virus definitions, or intrusion signatures that limit the effectiveness of conventional virus and spyware scanning solutions.
