Edge to protect against criminal software
Prevx, a provider of security software, has launched a new security product, Edge, designed to detect and block the plethora of criminal software.
The company claims that the Prevx Edge can either work alongside users’ existing anti-virus or as standalone software to protect against the new breed of advanced malware disables, bypasses or ignores leading brands of security software.
The company said that the Prevx Edge can defeat malware with three measures that are all but impossible for malware to counteract. Used collectively, they provide an additional layer of protection working in parallel with a customer’s existing security applications.
According to the company, the combination of all these features in a simple 1Mb download, which is also particularly light on CPU and RAM usage, is a notable achievement. Combine this with the fact that the malware scanner takes just a minute to complete and Prevx Edge is a fully featured security package which is as undemanding on the user as it is on the PC it is running on..
Mel Morris, CEO of Prevx said: We believe Prevx Edge to be the strongest consumer security software offering on the market, providing cutting edge protection against the latest methods of attack used by cyber criminals. By designing a product which works alongside your existing security product we have broken a major barrier that is limiting the security industry’s ability to combat the onslaught of these new threats to make consumer PCs safer.
