Comodo Internet Security

You know you deserve the very best in life, but your wallet probably isn’t big enough to afford a lot of the the best things you would like. The very best house, best car or the best vacation are all out of reach for most people.

When it comes to securing your computer you are in luck!
You can afford the very best security software: Comodo Internet Security (CIS) and Antivirus for Windows 8. I know this because even Comodo’s free editions provide fully functioning versions of the award winning Comodo antivirus and firewall to foster not just virus scans and virus removal but to ensure default deny prevention. And now CIS is better than ever!

Comodo has announced the release of its Internet Security 8 (CIS 8) software for the Window’s desktop, including new and enhanced containerization protection. Containerization is a technology approach that either puts the bad programs in a jail cell where they can do no harm or the good ones in a fortress where they are protected. It allows users to go about their business safely even in the most perilous threat environments.

According to Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and Chief Security Architect “We have proven in the real world that our containerization strategy is superior to any competing solution”.  He added “Not only are we the world’s first to bring containerization to the mass market, we also provide it completely free of charge to all users.”

CIS 8 provides desktop users with a multi-layered defense which includes Comodo’s award winning firewall, powerful antivirus, auto-sandboxing of potential threats and a secure Virtual Desktop environment.
