PC-cillin Internet Security 2005

February 2005 Cyber Security

SecureData, a member of the JSE-listed ERP.com Group has announced the availability of Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005. PC-cillin Internet Security 2005 now features additional privacy, reliability, and security functionality for PCs and home networks.

Capabilities such as Wi-Fi intrusion detection, anti-phishing, spyware removal, and the ability to manage multiple PCs within the network make PC-cillin an even more comprehensive security solution for home and small office/home office (SOHO) networks.

The increased affordability and availability of broadband, wireless, and residential gateway technologies have made home networks popular; many households and SOHOs utilise more than one computer, shared network resources, always-on Internet connections, and incorporate wireless hubs to support remote devices like laptops. With greater ease of Internet connectivity comes increased exposure to Internet-based threats such as viruses, spam, spyware, hackers, and phishing scams.

The new Home Network Control feature in PC-cillin Internet Security 2005 allows users to easily configure, update, and manage the security of all the PCs within the home network through a single remote, password-protected interface (on the network). The Wi-Fi Intrusion Detection feature is the first in the desktop antivirus industry to alert home users when an unknown guest enters their wireless network, to keep out bandwidth thieves and unwanted intruders. The additional vulnerability assessment function automatically scans all computers for operating system and browser vulnerabilities, and provides one-click access to patch those vulnerabilities.

New anti-phishing software, built into PC-cillin Internet Security 2005, helps protect home users against this increasingly prevalent type of malicious junk e-mail, aimed at fooling users with authentic-looking e-mails and websites into surrendering personal and financial information. By blocking the transmission of outbound data to known phishing-related sites, users are protected before they even realise they were in danger.

"PC-cillin Internet Security 2005 brings together a broad set of security features required to fight the threats faced by consumers today," commented Richard Ku, director of product management for consumer products at Trend Micro. "Several major enhancements to the spyware, firewall, and URL filtering features of this product also help provide users with even more reliable privacy protection."
