Community at War against Malware

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The free antivirus solution of Immunet is spreading like wildfire. Nowadays, millions of Internet users are protected from millions of threats floating around the Web because of Immunet’s solution. But the questions are, what is it; how does this product work and why is it famous?

Back in 2008, Immunet was a small cyber security firm built by some of the bright minds in cyber security and holders of masters degree in information security, with a goal of building better securities for everyone. Within just one year, Immunet has released the beta version of the anti-virus solution they have made. Their community and cloud based software was made available in August 2009 and was available only to a few thousand Internet users. But because of the product’s capabilities, many Internet users began adopting this cyber security solution.

The number one reason why many people adopt this solution is that this solution is absolutely free. It has an invitation system that can let you invite automatically all your friends in the social network and let them join the Immunet Protect community. Immunet’s solution lets you shield your friends from threats floating in the Internet and also greatly reducing the chances these threats will make their way right into your computer. This software is a cloud solution that uses only a small part of the computer’s resources, thus the computer won’t slow down.  

The solution will work hand-in-hand with the existing antivirus software in the computer; not only that, it harnesses the power of these software and that every threat detected, the data will be compressed and sent back into the cloud for further analysis. Immunet Protect isn’t an alternative to AV, together these two tools are better than one.

Immunet Protect takes a newer approach against the age old problem of cyber threats. Although it is a cloud antivirus, it still differs from other cloud AV software. One advantage of Immunet’s solution is the fact that it is new and it requires no huge amount of CPU usage and also memory footprints in order for it to work. The approach of Immunet Protect is unique and it focuses more on the community rather than the common centric protection most cloud AV industries offer. Their approach is like getting into the root of the problem instead of waiting for the problem to approach them. Meaning, the system would go into each individual members of the cloud security; identify the problems in security and fix that before it could affect other peers in the network.

Because of the Immunet Protect’s capabilities and its ability to work well together with different kinds of antivirus software, millions of users are satisfied with their network security. In fact, many masters degree information security  experts strongly believe that Immunet Protect and AVs coexist perfectly; there is no reason to break them apart and it would be best to observe them on how they could perform in the next few years.

Unfortunately, there are some misguided individuals who really don’t understand the full scope and abilities of Immunet Protect. Some are surprised on how fast the software’s scan process believing that it was completely done and that their system is completely safe and secure already. It could have been right, but not entirely. They were just using beta version of the product that scans only the processes that are running and programs that were set only to run on boot time. This what Immunet calls as Flash Scan and it is fast because it is limited only. Commercial version of Immunet Protect covers a far wider and better range of security than the beta version.

Immunet does not end there; Immunet Protect has another version for their impressive cloud AV software. The Immunet Protect Version 2 will have much more to offer than its predecessor and both its free version and commercial software will have almost the same features. However, only the commercial version will provide a local host, an offline scanner that will operate even if the user is not connected to Immunet’s cloud. And Immunet’s cloud engine the SPERO, security processes will become faster and the usage of the software will become far lighter than before.

You don’t have to become an expert with a degree in ms in information security just to understand how powerful and helpful this tool is.
