SoftSphere updates DefenseWall 1.7

By | November 21, 2006

SoftSphere has announced DefenseWall 1-72, the latest version of SoftSphere host based intrusion detection system that protects users from malicious code on the Internet. The latest release extends support for portable storage devices and fixes several known bugs.

DefenseWall HIPS (Host Intrusion Prevention System) protects you from malicious software – spyware, adware, keyloggers, rootkits, etc. – that can not be stopped by your anti-virus and anti-spyware programs, when you surf the Internet. It uses proactive protection technologies such as sandboxing and virtualization.

DefenseWall HIPS divides all applications into ´Trusted´ and ´Untrusted´ groups. Untrusted applications are launched with limited rights to modification of critical system parameters, and only in the virtual zone that is specially allocated for them, thus separating them from trusted applications. In the case of penetration by malicious software via one of the untrusted applications, it cannot harm your system and may be closed with just one click.

The software is priced at $29.00, and a full-featured 30-day trial is available.
