AVG Internet Security 9.0 | 115.84 Mb
AVG Internet Security 9.0 combines all the modern detection technologies
in one integrated security solution: signature, heuristic, behavioral,
in-the-cloud, and white listing. This combination of approaches delivers
a comprehensive security package.
FASTER – Scanning times can be a key requirement for customers. AVG
Internet Security 9.0 utilizes a methodology that marks files as safe or
potentially unsafe and then doesn’t scan the safe files again until the
file structure changes. This reduces scanning times by up to 50
SAFER – We have increased the degree of integration between the Resident
Shield, firewall, and Identity Protection modules, allowing them share
malware information with one other. This results in increased detection.
We listened to our customers and reviewers comments about our firewall.
It’s been redesigned to be less intrusive. It works more tightly with
Internet Security’s other components. There is no sacrifice in speed.
Our new Trusted/Unsafe Database allows us to make more decisions for the
user without their input. This makes the application quieter, safer,
and more accurate.
We’ve enhanced the real-time safe surfing capabilities of AVG
LinkScanner and its heuristic capabilities. It applies more than 100
different threat indicators to a web page. If the results are
inconclusive, it makes a call into the cloud and our research network to
make a final call. 60% of transient threats exist on a site for less
than a day. The AVG LinkScanner component is designed to stop them.
EASIER TO USE – The number of screens required to install the product
has been reduced by about half. The user interface has been redesigned.
Internet Security 9.0 will detect a significant number of security
solutions that could be on the system. We’re partnering with OPSWAT to
provide our customers their AppRemover utility. This will make it easier
for them to completely uninstall other securitysoftware that may cause
conflicts with our solution.
FOR GAMERS – Internet Security 9.0 offers Gamer Mode. This allows the
Gamer to enjoy online games without sacrificing security. Gamers won’t
be interrupted by a “Firewall Ask Dialog”, for example, should an
unknown application attempt to establish an Internet connection. The end
result is a more enjoyable gaming experience.
