FirstDefense-ISR immediate system recovery is a new solution that minimises the risk of a PC crash. Traditionally, recovering a failed system after corruption or virus infection can cost a company dearly in terms of both time and money, requiring considerable resources and expertise.

A speedy means of recovering a failed system, FirstDefense-ISR works by making a full-system copy of Windows XP, 2000 or Server 2003, including personal application settings and data, e-mail and bookmarks. Up to 10 copies can be saved indefinitely, so that should a system fail, it can immediately fall back on the latest snapshot with minimum time and resources wasted. What is more, this application boasts a unique data anchoring feature that protects user data up to the point of failure.

FirstDefense-ISR is able to instantly renew your system when it is hampered by memory leaks, uninstalls and temporary files, with current data still intact, and can instantly recover from bad driver or operating system upgrades. No additions or other modifications are required for installation to existing systems.
