StormShield Personal Edition is a free security software application developed from SkyRecon's industry-leading professional solution StormShield Endpoint Security. StormShield Personal Edition provides protection against major risks in Internet browsing and attacks against the operating system and applications.
The sophistication of threats spread by the Internet continues to grow at an alarming rate. More numerous and increasingly difficult to detect, these attacksвЂ”from viruses, spyware, Trojan horses, malware, etc. вЂ” are poorly addressed by conventional personal protection technologies. All too often, PC security is solely dependent on antivirus software (AV) and a firewall. And yet, while most Internet users are equipped with these technologies, numerous attacks continue to spread with disconcerting ease.
Traditional AV protection is based on signatures that fail to evolve at the same pace that new malware programs are being created. Computer hackers adapt and produce virus variants in such massive quantities that AV protection is not capable of recognizing, which makes it inadequate to effectively protect a computer and the data it contains.
As applications become increasingly complex, they also become preferential targets. A lucrative exploitation of their vulnerabilities allows the most aggressive malware to be distributed. Computer threats are everywhere and, without proper protection, a few clicks are enough to let a cyber criminal infect thousands of personal computers. Passwords, on-line account access information, bank card numbers, etc.; all of this data can be stolen without the user even noticing. For real protection, traditional signature-based AV must be complimented with вЂњintelligentвЂќ protection.
Based on an intelligent detection mechanism and not on traditional signature-based technology, StormShield Personal Edition is capable of detecting any (new) program with abnormal behavior on a PC and instantly blocking it before it is executed. The protection afforded by StormShield Personal Edition, for example, can block buffer overflow attacks or keylogging attacks, or attempts to corrupt processes in memory. Your computer and your personal information are kept secure. You can view your bank account, use your favorite applications, and surf the Internet with total peace of mind.
Vulnerability protection thwarts any attempt to exploit software vulnerabilities. This method of attack is the one most commonly used in the area of data theft and virus propagation.
Keylogging protection blocks keylogging software before it is launched on a computer. Web surfers are protected against these attacks, which are generally aimed at stealing passwords, bank card numbers, and other confidential information.
Registry protection blocks one of the primary means of operating system corruption. One example of this protection is preventing the installation of malware programs present on infected Web pages or in compromised files.
Activity logs monitor operations that have taken place on the protected computer and ensure the establishment of the desired level of security.
