And Protect Your PC(s) Against Ransomware & Other Such Malware
Malware can infect any computer. Not just the ones part of enterprise networks. So if your home PC is not protected well, chances are, you may become the victim of the next malware attack. Now how can you protect your PC against malware attacks?
Protecting Your PC(s) Against Malware Attacks
The fact above (a new malware strain was discovered every 4.2 seconds in Q1 2017) serves as a clear indication that you need much more than an antivirus package to safeguard your PC(s). You need one that can update itself regularly with the latest malware signatures. One that can work well with other security software to fight malware. To be more precise, you need an Internet Security Suite.
An Internet Security Suite – sometimes known as a paid antivirus – is usually a combination of a group of security software like antivirus, firewall, website filtering, etc., all rolled into one, which comes equipped with cutting-edge technology that can successfully handle various types of malware attacks.
A stand-alone antivirus can't do much except detect and prevent. On the other hand,
antivirus combined with a group of security products can fight malware efficiently.
Use Comodo Internet Security
Comodo Internet Security has been specifically designed with PC users like you in mind, and contains impressive features like Containment, Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS), VirusScope, Default-Deny Approach, which safeguard your PC not only against the known but unknown threats as well (which is quite important when it comes to combating malware).
How Can You Protect PC(s) Using Comodo Internet Security?
With Comodo Internet Security(CIS), you can:
- Detect and Stop Malware In Its Tracks: Comodo's proactive antivirus engine can successfully detect and stop viruses, worms, and other such malware attacks. This ensures nothing enters your PC(s) by bypassing the regulation security checks, which in turn, ensures only the clean pass through.
- Regulate Web Traffic Using Security Policies: Malware needs internet to distribute itself. This is especially true in the case of stand-alone PC users not part of any network. Therefore by regulating web traffic (internet) through appropriate security policies, users can keep malware at bay. This can be accomplished using firewall which is a part of CIS.
- Quarantine The Unknown: Malware attacks which are yet to be studied or discovered (new malware) are the ones which are the most successfully causing damage worldwide. Because the unknown cannot be predicted easily. But CIS, which employs containment technology, is effective against unknown malware (files or applications) as well. As it can quarantine the unknown and run them in a separate environment without allowing them to affect your PC.
- Track Activities Within Your Computer: Modern-day malware has the potential to easily slip through various layers of protection and enter your PC. Therefore you need a technology which scans your PC's activities (applications and processes that are running) and stops or terminates suspicious looking ones. HIPS (host intrusion prevention system) technology, which is a part of CIS, is responsible for this. HIPS can also detect (and stop) file-less malware as well, which don't leave any traces behind in your operating system.
- Keep Sensitive Information From Being Exploited: When you use your PC(s) to transact sensitive information – for example, banking online – there's a chance you may end up leaking it due to the dangers posed by browsers as well as internal issues (maybe a spyware). With CIS, you can avoid these security risks as it allows you to make use of Virtual Desktop service.
- Undo Malicious Activity: Detecting malicious activity within your PC(s) is one thing. Undoing them is totally another. Using VirusScope, a technology which is a part of CIS, PC users like you will be able to undo detected malicious activities easily.
- Safeguard Sensitive Information: With so many ransomware attacks invading PCs worldwide this year, it's time users thought of a safe place to backup or secure their system data. In case they fall victims to malware attack, they will be able to retrieve their data and reset their systems without having to pay the ransom. CIS's cloud-based backup helps users perform this.
- Secure Your WiFi Connection: CIS also comes equipped with TrustConnect, which allows you to surf the internet securely from any public wi-fi kiosk without the fear of your PC being infected with malware. TrustConnect is available only with the complete version.
