Cloud based anti-malware solution

SurfRight : 01 July, 2009  (New Product)
Security in the cloud provider SurfRight uses multiple programs to provide comprehensive protection against viruses, Trojans and other malware
SurfRight, a developer of tools that give users more control over their PC security, has announced the UK availability of Hitman Pro 3.5, an all-in one security tool that locates, identifies and removes viruses, spyware, trojans, Rootkits and other malware. Hitman Pro 3.5 is the first security product of its kind to incorporate a hosted multi-vendor scanning service - Scan Cloud - that uses the combined force of multiple security programs, as well as behavioural scanning, to provide comprehensive threat detection with minimal impact on system performance. Users need never again download definitions on an hourly or daily basis as the detection of malware is all managed in the cloud, further reducing the impact on the user's PC.

Commenting on the new Cloud Scan service, Mark Loman, founder and CEO of SurfRight said, "Computers continue to be infected with malware, even if they have an up-to-date security suite installed. It would seem that the only course of action would be for users to install multiple anti malware programs on their PC's. This of course goes against all the recommendations of the Anti Malware vendors as it could have a disastrous impact on the PC's stability and performance.."

Hitman Pro's Cloud Scan feature will work alongside any existing anti virus, anti spyware or security suite and can be simply run whenever required to give a second opinion on suspect files or be called upon to remove threats missed by a user's existing software.

"By taking this behavioural approach, we can provide a better service to end-users and reduce the impact on performance that traditional AV solutions can have." Added Loman.

The Hitman Pro 3.5 executable can be downloaded and run straight from a USB Flash Drive, CD/DVD, local or network attached hard drive and will quickly reveal the presence of any malware using a behavioural scan. The actual identification of these potential malware files, using products from multiple vendors, is then done on the Hitman Pro servers, the 'Scan Cloud'.

Hitman Pro 3.5 offers a number of features including:

* An innovative scanning technique that can distinguish between malicious and safe software without signatures, by looking at behaviour
* A short scan time - searches systems within a few minutes
* No extra system load
* Profiling and white listing that avoids false positives on important system files
* Multi-vendor identification of malware in SurfRight's real-time 'Scan Cloud'
* Automatic restoration of common system alterations made by malicious software
* The ability to create a check point in System Restore before removing malicious software
* Removal of resistant threats using native NT boot-time deleter.
* Removal of references to malicious software (like shortcuts and registry entries)
* Free malware scan
* Free online support in English, German and Dutch.
