Usability of the product

Internet downloads using your browser no longer needs to be a scary activity as almost all downloads be it graphic, software, music or video is checked for the presence of threats and blocked if detected and an alert provided for the user.
Guarding against viruses and other online threats
The product includes the core protection tool, which is responsible for blocking viruses, spyware, worms, Trojans, and other malicious malwares. Hackers and intruders are guarded against by the two way firewall protection scanning and monitoring inbound and outbound traffic in real time. Bootable and recovery tools are made available to repair, restore, and boot up infected PCs.
Viruses that may try to exploit the ActiveX loopholes in the web browsers to induce infections are blocked before they can run in the browser. The identity protection feature ensures that sensitive details as credit card data, bank account details are securely done in a protected environment as it watches out for keyloggers, phishing websites by only authenticating trusted websites. The backup and restore tool is used to save important user data and information in a local storage media or to a secured online storage location.
