Avira 10 is coming!

One of the best antimalware products even gets better!
review will follow after release.



Hot topic: Avira version 10 - now with more security for you

Avira proudly presents Avira Version 10, the next generation of virus protection. We're giving a makeover to all our solutions, from the free basic security version through to our flagship AntiVir Professional for business. As well as a new look, all versions also feature easier user guidance systems to ensure maximum protection. Furthermore, we're adding a number of new security features - free-of-charge, of course!

The new features at a glance:

Generic repair (Personal, Premium, Suite and Professional versions)

This function is certain to please all those switching to Avira. That's because Avira enables them not only to detect and delete malware like viruses, worms or Trojans, but also to repair damage that has already occurred.

AntiVir ProActiv (Premium, Suite and Professional)

AntiVir ProActiv sets up tiny sensors on your PC to continuously monitor the system. Any unusual activity triggers an alarm, meaning that attacks and harmful content can be detected and prevented even when the actual code is so new that it has not yet been identified. This means detection of and protection against tomorrow's security threats, even if they're mutated versions that have never before been seen in the wild.

Extended parental control (exclusive to the Avira Suite)

Avira Version 10 makes the Internet safer for your kids. New features include the ability to block more undesirable websites, and also to limit the amount of time your children spend on the Net.

New firewall (Professional edition)

The AntiVir Professional version for networks and businesses includes ProActiv, our innovative early-warning system against threats. The new version includes a new firewall as standard in the Professional edition, plus extended functionality for the Security Management Center, our central management tool.

Version 10 is coming soon – check back at for more information.

PrivateFirewall: free and advanced protection & great addition to free antivirus!

Proactive, Multi-Layered Defense

  • NEW! Complete Windows 7 and Vista Support – Certified compatible with all versions of XP Pro, Vista and Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit).

  • Advanced packet filtering – Proprietary stateful packet inspection technology monitors all communication between the PC and the Internet and detects and blocks all unauthorized traffic. Privatefirewall allows the simple adjustment of security levels (High/Low/Custom) to establish different degrees of security for Internet and Local Network access.

  • Ultimate Application Control – Highly configurable Application Control Console enables you to specify which and precisely how applications can access the Internet.

  • Process Detection - Prevents viruses, trojans, worms and other malware by tracking all trusted processes and providing alerts when any potentially malicious process attempts to run.

  • System Anomaly Detection – System Anomaly Detection Engine baselines normal usage based on system variables such as CPU utilization, thread count, and others.  Normal use patterns of running applications are monitored and alerts are generated as unusual activity is detected.

  • Intelligent Tray Alerts Compact, user-friendly tray alerts provide detailed information regarding security events, offer native web search for convenient investigation, and pre-set intelligent “time-out” responses.

  • Stealth Mode PC is invisible when online and stealth to potential intruders.

  • Port Tracking and Reporting All ports are monitored to prohibit unauthorized scanning and system intrusion. Detailed reports are generated on all port scan and other reconnaissance attempts in addition to instantaneous on-screen alerts.

  • Email Anomaly Detection – Privatefirewall mitigates the impact of attacks targeting email clients by tracking the volume and frequency of outbound emails. Privatefirewall alerts you and blocks unacceptable deviations from normal email activity.

Application Control and Firewall Policy Management

  • Monitor all traffic to and from your PC and prevent trusted applications from being “Hi-Jacked” to steal local or network-accessible files.

  • The Process Monitor adds an important layer of defense to conventional firewall protection by identifying process-level behavior characteristics of intrusion techniques and malware activity.

  • Control which applications can access the Internet, and whether to permit/block every application with each usage or make permissions permanent. Specific IPs and/or Websites can be blocked or allowed access.

  • Define application specific or global packet filtering rules that can be applied to incoming, outgoing or bi-directional traffic.

  • View or create advanced firewall reports sorted by Web, Mail, or System access attempts spanning Hours, Days, Weeks, or customized time periods.

Unmatched Ease of Use

  • Privatefirewall’s security presets deliver superior PC protection immediately upon installation. Setup and configuration are fully automatic right out of the box.

  • One-click configuration of pre-defined security settings for Home, Office, and Remote profiles eliminate complicated application tuning.

  • Privatefirewall conveniently detects connections to local networks and automatically sets rules that allow access within that network.

  • A variety of custom configuration interfaces are easily accessible for advanced users.

  • Privatefirewall is fully integrated with Windows Security Center.

Microsoft gaat vanaf vandaag elke 90 dagen controleren of Windows 7 systemen wel legitiem zijn, wat volgens een privacyvoorstander totaal onacceptabel is. Lauren Weinstein, medeoprichter van People For Internet Responsibility (PFIR), roept gebruikers dan ook op om de update in kwestie te weigeren. De nieuwe anti-piraterijmethode zullen veel consumenten op z'n minst als een ernstige en ongewenste inbreuk beschouwen, zo merkt Weinstein op.....  lees verder op
