Comodo, a certification authority and global provider of security solutions, introduced Comodo Firewall Pro v3.0 with its A-VSMART technology platform 'Anti-Virus, Spyware, Malware, Adware, Rootkit and Trojans'.
This technology is uniquely designed to protect end users from malware of threat and it delivers a revolutionary approach to desktop security.
The comopany states that unlike detection/signature-based solutions that first allows all applications to gain access to a PC to be evaluated based on by their signature, Comodo Firewall Pro takes the opposite approach.
With A-VSMART architecture it allows only those applications known to be safe to gain access to computer resources, reducing the probability of damage occurring.
The company explains that hijacking legitimate sites to make them 'distributors' of malware gives attackers instant advantages because fraudsters need not work to drive people to a specific site.
This is a serious issue for online users because they have no way of knowing whether a site that should be trusted. It further states Comodo Firewall Pro provides one of the only known ways to protect against this type of threat.
It only allows trusted applications to gain access to system resources thus preventing malware that is resident on a site from gaining access to an end user's system.
"We are empowering end users to be proactive in the protection of their PCs and we deliver this level of technology for free." said Melih Abdulhayoglu, CEO and Chief Security Architect of Comodo.
"While an eCommerce site may have all the security in the world, some types of threats may bypass these solutions. With Comodo Firewall Pro end users can be confident that their machines are secure even if the site they are on may not be.
That is a revolution in the way consumers can stay safe online and we are giving consumers this powerful technology for free so they protect themselves."
