Comodo, a certification authority and global provider of security solutions, today announced that the latest version of Comodo Firewall Pro v3.0 has again been awarded the maximum 5 stars out of 5 in a recent review by CNET's download.com.
Company affirmed that in this review, Comodo Firewall Pro was, for the second time in a row, commended for, "providing a smorgasbord of information and options for advanced users, but simple enough for beginners. Don't be fooled by the name, either.
Comodo is labeled Pro but it offers up its dragon-sized treasure of features for free." The also states that this version follows the 5-star rating Comodo previously received for the 2.4 version of the firewall in October 2007. And in addition, user support continues to increase as the firewall received an "excellent" rating, getting a four star user rating.
The company articulates that with this release, it has moved away from traditional "detection based" desktop security models to a radical new approach using a proprietary technology architecture platform called A-VSMART™.
With A-VSMART™, short for "Anti - Virus, Spyware, Malware, Adware, Rootkits and Trojans", prevention becomes the first line of defense by preventing viruses computer access and only allowing known, trusted applications to be installed.
It also declared with prevention as the first line of defense, threats are mitigated because unknown applications, including malware, are denied execution rights by the firewall. If a virus cannot install or run, then it cannot do any damage.
This new architecture is a fundamental change in how PCs can remain virus free versus the traditional, "detection based" security solutions that allow all applications access to the computer and then try to "detect" damaging files by recognizing the file's "signature".
