Immunet Protect, free anti virus software developed by Oliver Friedrichs (former Director at Symantec) and Alfred Huger (former McAfee and Symantec executive). This free cloud antivirus software is based on four fronts such as Cloud computing, Community based protection, Collective wisdom and Coincidental with installed desktop antivirus together to provide virus prevention and malware protection on your computer. Plus more, It works with other desktop antivirus software together provides multiple antivirus level protection.
Imagine for a moment that you could link to the computers of your friends, family and a global community to harness the collective security of all these systems put together. Every time someone in this collective community encounters a threat, everyone else in the community gains protection from that same threat in real time.
Once you have Immunet protect cloud antivirus installed, it will ties your computer into the Immunet Cloud and allows you to build communities of friends and family. When Immunet Protect detects a threat on your system it automatically makes available protections for it to everyone in your community and to the global community protecting them instantly.
However, Immunet Protect cloud antivirus offers one type of antivirus scan only. Individual files or drives cannot be scanned individually. But Immunet does offer one feature – Protection Settings when enabled allow you to monitor application installations and starts. An Active Protection Mode takes a few seconds to check and block program installations unless they are deemed to be safe. You can switch these settings on-off from Settings.
Beside that, Immunet protect cloud antivirus consume very less computer resources while running and it can run on support Microsoft Windows XP (SP2 or later), Vista and Windows 7
(RC 32Bit only).
Immunet Protect Software Updates:
Immunet 3.0 is released with customized protection against Zero-Day threats and automated remediation of infected files. Meanwhile, Immunet Protect latest version enables users to create custom Anti-Malware signatures and leverages Cloud computing technology to protect All Users from newly discovered threats.
Some of Immunet 3.0 features:
Custom Signature Creation – While customization is available in some enterprise security solutions, including Intrusion Prevention Systems, traditional antivirus offerings continue to take a “black box” mentality to customization. With Immunet 3.0, customers now have the power to create signatures for their specific requirements, significantly improving the effectiveness of Immunet.
Cloud Recall – This new, innovative feature leverages the power of the Immunet platform to provide increased endpoint protection. Through continuous file processing in the cloud, Immunet 3.0 can retroactively quarantine a file that was originally cleared, but later deemed to be malware. The Immunet Community is updated automatically as new threats are discovered. Cloud Recall provides a significant advantage over traditional approaches to solving this problem, which include sending 20,000 – 40,000 signatures down to each and every endpoint on a daily basis, then invoking a resource-intensive full system scan.
Collective Immunity – A key benefit of Immunet 3.0 is Collective Immunity, which allows users to harness the collective presence of Immunet’s 850,000 worldwide users for increased endpoint protection. This cloud-based approach enables organizations to better protect against zero-day attacks with real-time protection driven by intelligence from the user community. Each time someone in this collective community encounters a threat, everyone else in the community automatically gains protection from that same threat in real time. Customers no longer have to rely on the isolated security of their traditional antivirus vendor.
