NovaShield's Signature-Less Antivirus Fills PC Security Gaps Left by Traditional Antivirus Products

Madsion, WI (PressExposure) March 22, 2009 -- There are millions of viruses and malware circulating on the Internet and tens of thousands of new ones being released every day. Your valuable PC files are living in a dangerous world.

No worries, you think, I have an antivirus program.

But do you have an antivirus program that keeps up with real threats in real time?

Traditional signature-based antivirus programs check a database of digital signatures of known viruses and malware against what's running on your PC. Unfortunately, that means they often don't know about new viruses and malware because the digital signatures simply aren't in their databases.

There's an average gap of 54 days between the time when malware and viruses are released to attack your computer and when your signature-based antivirus program creates its digital signature and updates the database on your PC, according to a recent study by Damballa, a company that focuses on protecting firms from targeted attacks used for organized, online crime. To make matters worse, almost half of those viruses and malware went undetected the day they attacked and 15 percent still were undetected after 180 days, according to the study.

Now there's an unsettling thought.

Thankfully for you and your PC, there's a solution: NovaShield. NovaShield's behavior-based antivirus program fills the security gaps left behind by signature-based antivirus programs.

Its breakthrough technology scrutinizes behavior. It examines -- in real time -- how software is acting to detect if it’s a malware or not. That includes everything: virus, spyware, botnets, Trojans, keyloggers, rootkits and worms.

NetworkWorld, a magazine for network and IT executives, named NovaShield one of "10 IT security companies to watch." Visit [] to see why, download a free trial or to buy NovaShield's revolutionary product.
