Ever wondered why you have to use antispyware tools to regularly scan, detect, and clean up your computer? The fact is that spyware tools don't always stop your PC from becoming infected, firewalls can't block virus infiltration, and antivirus software is always one step behind the latest threats, leaving PCs open to new, previously unseen attacks.
Prevx Home provides a critical last line of defense, protecting your computer against sophisticated, new attacks all other security measures fail to stop. This powerful, host-intrusion-prevention software will protect against malicious intrusions capable of crashing your system, stealing confidential information, tracking your browsing behavior, hijacking your PC, and slowing down your Internet connection.
Prevx Home works by protecting the areas of your computer most likely to be targeted during an attack, including your PC's memory, file system, operating system, registry, and programs. Potentially harmful behavior is blocked and you are notified via a pop-up alert asking if you want to allow or deny the activity. If you're uncertain what to do, you can get advice by accessing our online database of alerts, where you will be able to view the percentage of fellow users who've previously allowed or denied the security event you're experiencing.
Prevx Home stops spyware attacks that change the IE default home page and install malicious browser helper objects or toolbars. It also stops the installation and execution of in-memory/buffer overflow attacks, tactics commonly used by Internet worms and for hack attacks.
Intrusion-prevention technology of this type and strength has only previously been available to major enterprises. Prevx is the first and only organization to provide it, free of charge, to the consumer.
