Security Software : ThreatFire Antivirus



Download ThreatFire (free version)

If I already have antivirus software why do I need ThreatFire?
ThreatFire is dramatically different to traditional antivirus software. Normal antivirus products usually need to have first identified and seen a threat before they can provide adequate protection against it. The protection is then provided via a signature or fingerprint update, which must first be written by an antivirus researcher. This creates a large window of time where threats are undetected and can therefore infect your PC even when you have antivirus software installed.

How can ThreatFire protect me?
ThreatFire continually protects your PC against attacks by detecting malicious behavior, such as capturing your keystrokes or stealing your data, instead of only looking for known threats like normal antivirus software. By implementing sophisticated real-time behavioral analysis ThreatFire is able to stop never- before-seen zero-day threats solely by detecting their malicious activity.

How ThreatFire Works?
By constantly monitoring the activity on your PC ThreatFire`s ActiveDefense technology is able to hunt down and paralyze threats that are too new or too clever to be recognized by traditional security software. ThreatFire employs an intelligent behavioral engine to only alert you on truly malicious behavior, because sometimes even legitimate software may look malicious. This means you are only alerted when you really need to be.
