Panda Software launches TruPrevent Technologies for home users, small businesses and professionals

  • By preventing threats instead of reacting to them, TruPrevent Technologies are the perfect complement to traditional antivirus products

  • The new Platinum Internet Security and Titanium Antivirus 2004, both with TruPrevent Technologies, offer protection for home users, businesses and professionals against all types of viruses and intruders – even unknown ones

  • TruPrevent Personal is a powerful preventive solution against unknown viruses and intruders and is compatible with antivirus products from developers other than Panda Software

  • By analyzing the behavior of applications and with no need for human intervention, TruPrevent Technologies have already demonstrated their effectiveness against unknown viruses, including the recent and highly dangerous Bagle.AH and Mydoom.N worms

  • TruPrevent Technologies take a preventive not a reactive approach, automatically intercepting the problem without the need for human intervention and no false positives

Glendale, CA - July 30 2004 - Panda Software has launched TruPrevent Technologies, the most intelligent technologies to combat unknown viruses and intruders, incorporated in a complete range of retail products designed to protect home users, as well as businesses and professionals:

  • TruPrevent Personal, aimed at those that want preventive protection against unknown threats or for users that already have a traditional antivirus (from other vendors) installed on their computer but need the enhanced security offered by Panda’s TruPrevent Technologies.

  • Titanium Antivirus 2004 with TruPrevent Technologies, aimed at protecting home-users’ computers.

  • Platinum Internet Security with TruPrevent Technologies, a security suite to protect businesses and professionals against all the latest Internet threats. This all-in-one solution includes antivirus, firewall, intelligent protection against unknown viruses and intruders, anti-spam, anti-spyware and web access control. 

IT security management is an increasingly complicated task, and it’s not made any easier by the constant appearance of vulnerabilities in all kinds of applications. Antivirus solutions are highly effective when it comes to preventing known attacks, but as they are essentially reactive, they become much less effective when it comes to blocking new, unknown viruses and intruders as there is a critical time lag between the discovery of a new threat and the moment in which systems are actually updated to protect against it. During this time computers are vulnerable. For this reason, when worms like Sasser, Mydoom or SQLSlammer appear, they are able to rapidly infect millions of computers.

In the future, these kinds of fast-spreading threats are likely to appear with increasing frequency and are certain to use a wide range of techniques to infect computers. The solution therefore lies in the implementation of preventive solutions, capable of pre-empting the problem and intercepting these attacks as they enter or leave the computer. Panda Software has spent several years working in this direction and the result is the launch of its TruPrevent Technologies: the most intelligent technologies to combat unknown viruses and intruders.

Just like a good detective, TruPrevent Technologies analyze suspicious behavior in programs and automatically block them intelligently with no need for human intervention and without having to ask users any questions. This characteristic also makes them extremely simple to manage.

According to Pedro Bustamante, Chief Marketing Officer at Panda Software: ”TruPrevent Technologies are a genuine answer to the need for greater security against new Internet threats that are too fast spreading for a human response to be effective. This has been demonstrated with the new and dangerous Bagle.AH and Mydoom.N worms which were blocked by TruPrevent Technologies before they could take any malicious action. These technologies hail a new era for IT security.”

The combination of traditional security systems and antivirus protection with the new TruPrevent Technologies has created a new benchmark in levels of security against the increasing number of Internet threats, including unknown viruses and intruders.

TruPrevent Technologies also incorporate a system for eliminating all traces of infections and unknown attacks. This means that system configurations affected by a virus, worm or intruder can be restored to those that existed prior to the attack, undoing changes to file names, new registry entries, infected libraries, etc.

Another advantage of TruPrevent Technologies, especially for home users and professionals, is that they are designed to avoid false positives, i.e. to identify only applications that represent a real threat to the system.

TruPrevent Technologies represent a landmark for the antivirus market, as the powerful protection against viruses and intruders offered by Panda Software’s products is now enhanced by the capacity of these new intelligent technologies to neutralize attacks from unknown threats. The end result is simply greater security for all users.


Availability of TruPrevent Technologies 

The new solutions including TruPrevent Technologies are available in ESD version from Panda Software’s online store at http://www.pandasoftware.com/store or through official Panda Software dealers.

Similarly, in the coming months, Panda Software will release a complete range of products with TruPrevent Technologies, which will cover the protections needs of SMEs and large corporations to combat unknown viruses and intruders.

Panda Software launches Beta Test for TruPrevent: the most intelligent technologies to combat unknown viruses and intruders

  • TruPrevent Technologies are not heuristic based and take a preventive non reactive approach, automatically pre-empting the problem, without human intervention and without generating false positives

  • TruPrevent Technologies are designed to stop worm attacks like those caused by Sasser or Mydoom by analyzing their behavior and are the perfect complement to traditional antivirus protection. For this reason, these technologies are even compatible with products that have not been developed by Panda Software

  • TruPrevent Technologies give a reliable response to the need for higher levels of protection for home users, professionals and large corporations to face the constant appearance of faster-spreading and more sophisticated viruses and threats

  • TruPrevent Technologies do not have a significant impact on system performance 

 
Glendale, CA - June 30, 2004 - Panda Software announces the launch of TruPrevent, the most intelligent technologies for combating unknown viruses and intruders. These technologies represent a radical change of approach to combating Internet threats, as the traditional concept of reacting once a virus has emerged is replaced with intelligent technologies for preventing the attack before it strikes, pre-empting the problem. The beta versions of the new range of products incorporating these technologies can now be downloaded from the Panda Website.

Current security solutions are highly effective at combating known threats. However, they are reactive prevention systems and, as a result, need to be updated in order to deal successfully with the kinds of viruses threats that computer users are being attacked with today. This means there is a greater reaction time, which can have fatal consequences. The only solution to this is to use preventive and intelligent systems, capable of staying one step ahead of the problem, detecting and blocking threats as soon as they attempt to enter or leave the computer.

Traditional antivirus and security systems combined with the new TruPrevent Technologies result in higher levels of security than ever before to protect against the increasing number of Internet threats including unknown viruses and intruders. With this in mind, during the third quarter of 2004, Panda Software will release new products designed to protect both home and professional users, SMEs and large corporations. TruPrevent technologies can be added to any antivirus solution including those that have not been developed by Panda Software.

TECHNOLOGIES DESIGNED TO AVOID FALSE POSITIVES
Panda Software has spent several years working on a set of preventive technologies, including behavioral analyses, which in tests have shown themselves to be highly effective against viruses and other unidentified threats. The result is the launch of its new preventive TruPrevent Technologies, the most intelligent technologies to combat unknown viruses and intruders.

Like a good detective, TruPrevent Technologies analyze programs for suspicious behavior and automatically and intelligently block them without human intervention and without any needing to ask any questions. This makes these technologies extremely simple to administer, making them even more convenient.

Another advantage of TruPrevent Technologies for home, professional and corporate users is that they are designed to avoid false positives, i.e., to identify only applications that represent a real threat to the system. 

TECHNOLOGIES THAT PRE-EMPT VIRUSES
“The argument is very clear: The larger the threat, the higher the need for protection. TruPrevent Technologies represent a major leap forward for the security of IT systems. With TruPrevent we are talking about a radical change of approach in protection against viruses, as we have moved on from reacting to a virus to pre-empting it and as a result preventing it from spreading and avoiding the consequences of its damaging effects,” states Pedro Bustamante, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Panda Software International.

“New threats are increasingly difficult to stop using traditional reactive protection systems, as demonstrated by recent virus epidemics caused by fast-spreading worms, or threats that exploit security holes to spread and infect computers. In fact, if the new TruPrevent Technologies were available when these epidemics emerged, we would have been able to block a lot of viruses that have caused damage,” concludes Bustamante.

TruPrevent Technologies incorporate a system for eliminating all traces of infections and unknown attacks. This system restores systems infected by viruses, worms or Trojans, avoiding the names of files, windows Registry entries, infected libraries, etc. from being changed.

TruPrevent Technologies will be incorporated in the new range of products that will be available on the market in the third quarter of 2004 and, at the same time, are perfectly compatible with any traditional antivirus product on the market developed by Panda Software or other manufacturers.

TruPrevent Technologies are a milestone in the antivirus protection market. The powerful protection against viruses and intruders that characterizes Panda Software’s products is now combined with the capacity to neutralize attacks from unknown viruses and intruders, thanks to intelligent and preventive technologies in TruPrevent. The result is a higher level of protection for all users. 

AVAILABILITY OF TRUPREVENT TECHNOLOGIES
During the third quarter of 2004, Panda Software will release a complete range of products with TruPrevent Technologies, which will cover the protections needs of all users, home users, professionals, SMEs and large corporations to combat unknown viruses and intruders.

THE 1ST WORLDWIDE INTERNET SECURITY CAMPAIGN IS UP AND RUNNING WITH THE AIM OF MAKING THE INTERNET A SAFER PLACE

  • Organized by the Internet Users Association and Panda Software and under the slogan “Ridding the Planet of Viruses”, the campaign has been set up to make the Internet a safer place for users

  • Internet users can access the information, training and solutions they need to protect their PCs against Internet threats until July 31 on the campaign site

  • This open initiative has both private and public support in over 50 countries. Any individual, company or entity can join in and help promote this initiative

MADRID, SPAIN - June 17, 2004 - The 1st Worldwide Internet Security Campaign has been organized by the Internet Users Association and Panda Software and is supported by sponsors in over 50 countries who are joining forces to help the initiative reach each and every Internet user under the slogan “Ridding the Planet of Viruses”. The campaign is set to run until July 31.

Available at http://www.worldwidesecure.org, the 1st Worldwide Internet Security Campaign is an open initiative set up to reply to a vital need of Internet users and responds to the objective to create a more secure Internet for everyone.

This campaign aims to provide every Internet user in the world with training, information and solutions. For this reason, the campaign is available in the eight most widely-spoken languages on the Internet. These are, in order according to Global Reach: English (35.8%), Chinese (14.1%), Japanese (9.6%), Spanish (9.0%), German (7.3%), French (3.8%), Portuguese (3.5%) and Italian (3.3%).

Any internaut, company or institution who wants can join in and contribute to promoting the campaign. Anyone who has a website can get the resources needed to spread the word from the campaign website at http://www.worldwidesecure.org.

All visitors to the 1st Worldwide Internet Security Campaign website can clean their computers of viruses and other intruders using the free tools available on the site, including full versions with free services, exclusive to the visitors to this portal.

Internet users will also have a direct line to security experts through a forum in which they can post any questions they may have. The aim of the forum is to resolve any questions, or problems and collect suggestions about any issues related to Internet security.

According to Victor Domingo, president of the Internet Users Association: “Our objective is to reach as many Internet users as possible and help them form part of a secure community.”

Jose Maria Hernandez, VP international expansion at Panda Software adds: “At Panda Software we are proud to be participating, in the field which we know best -virus and intrusion prevention-, in a drive to make society safer and more productive through this initiative open to all internet users around the world.”

THE PROBLEM AND THE SOLUTION

According to Global Reach, there are currently 729.2 million Internet users. Over 86 percent of these users speak one of the eight most widely spoken languages on the Internet. 

What’s more, there are over 76,000 viruses currently circulating across the Internet, 1,600 of which, according to data collected by Panda Software, are particularly active and continue infecting computers. In extreme situations, up to 100 new viruses can appear every day and an average of 600 new viruses emerge every month.

The combination of these situations along with other types of threats, such as hackers, spam, spyware, etc., create a feeling of insecurity about the Internet among users and make them feel vulnerable. This feeling is made worse still by worldwide epidemics like those caused by the Netsky, Bagle and Mydoom in 2004.

The 1st Worldwide Internet Security Campaign had been set up to provide an answer to this situation.

ABOUT THE INTERNET USERS ASSOCIATION

The Internet Users Association is made up of Internet users who in 1998 decided to form an alliance in order to represent their own interests and get affordable, universal and quality access. From then on, millions of Internet users have had a voice through the Association principally through their portal at http://www.internautas.org/
