Immediately Effective with No Complicated Set Up
ThreatFire provides immediate protection out-of-the-box. There are no difficult configuration decisions, intimidating messaging, or time-consuming signature downloads. The easy-to-use program with its ActiveDefense™ technology does it all so you don't have to.
Proactive Defense against Both Known and Unknown Threats
Traditional antivirus software offers strictly reactive protection. It can only protect you from a new threat after the threat has been discovered and new signatures to protect against it are developed, tested, and then released for download. ThreatFire does not rely on signatures to protect you; instead, it uses intelligent behavioral analysis to proactively hunt down and paralyze any activity or behavior that might compromise the security of a PC. ThreatFire keeps you safe between antivirus updates so you are always protected, no matter how new the threat.
Quarantine and Permanently Remove Threats from Your System
ThreatFire now automatically quarantines all threats detected, whether known or unknown for your protection. After quarantining, you can choose to permanently delete the threats from your system.
Rootkit Scanner Seeks Out Deeply Hidden Files, Objects and Registry Keys
ThreatFire is constantly on the lookout for signs of hidden processes that are running on your system that might indicate the presence of a rootkit. If it detects a hidden process it will immediately terminate it and notify you. However, hidden processes are not the only indicators of a rootkit. A rootkit may contain several pieces and the Rootkit Scanner dives deeper into your system to seek out any hidden files, registry keys or other objects that may be part of a rootkit. If it finds anything, it gives you the option to quarantine the objects so that the rootkit is prevented from running.
View Detailed Process Information on All Running Processes
ThreatFire now includes a new System Activity Monitor that lets you view detailed and informative data on all processes running on your PC. Integrated right-click context menu allows you to terminate a process on demand or perform a web search on the process name.
Complementary to Your Existing Antivirus Software
Since no single application is currently foolproof, a layered defense provides the most complete protection. ThreatFire is the perfect complement to your existing antivirus protection, and is fully compatible with your antivirus or other security programs. While the traditional programs will protect only against known threats included in their signatures until a new update is created, ThreatFire goes beyond and also protects against new or unknown zero-day threats.
Advanced Custom Configuration Options and Rules Settings
ThreatFire now includes fully configurable Custom Rules to allow advanced protection settings according to your specific needs. Use the simple Rule Wizard to create fully outlined arguments for new rules you wish ThreatFire Pro to enforce.
Virtually No Impact on System Performance
Even though ThreatFire runs constantly in the background while it watches for potentially malicious activity, it is very light on system resources. You'll hardly even know it's running until it alerts you to a potential problem.
More Technical Details Provided on Alerts
All ThreatFire alerts now include a new link that when clicked will display a list of files or registry objects that will be quarantined if you tell ThreatFire to quarantine the threat. Another link performs web search on the threat name. Easily access more data and background on the potential threats you encounter so that you can make more informed decisions on how to proceed.
Continually Improving Protection Technology
ThreatFire users can elect to participate in the ThreatFire Secure Community to aid in identifying suspect files and threats. When ThreatFire observes suspect behavior on a PC, the event information is automatically reported to PC Tools for analysis through a secure and anonymous connection. So as threat strategies evolve and new security penetration tactics emerge, ThreatFire's defenses remain at the forefront of the solutions that defeat those threats.
