CHICAGO -- Safe and Soft company (Moscow, Russia), the acknowledged expert in software security solutions, today announced the debut of its SafenSec host intrusion prevention system. Designed to protect data and user applications from threats posed by hackers, computer viruses, and spyware modules, SafenSec intercepts application system calls at the OS level, granting or denying system access based on a variety of predefined and user-customizable criteria.
Available in four different versions (SafenSec Personal, SafenSec Personal plus Antivirus, SafenSec Personal plus Anti-Spyware, and SafenSec Business), SafenSec offers home and business users an elevated level of system security by dynamically detecting and prohibiting unauthorized activity before system damage occurs.
Unlike traditional firewall and antiviral technologies that grant or deny application access based on program code, SafenSec analyzes application behavior in order to determine an applications potential maliciousness, blocking system access to not just known malware programs but to any applications exhibiting unauthorized behavior. An HIPS-class product (Host-based Intrusion Prevention System), SafenSecs proactive security technology prohibits malicious activity as soon as it beginsnot after code has been changed as the result of an infection.
The SafenSec security solutions identify applications either by the individual applications unique properties, including hard disk location and valid digital signature, or by a pre-determined list of core safe applications (MS Office, system utilities, etc.). Periodic updates to core applications are dynamically vetted by SafenSecs iTrust Engine, which verifies their identification properties and blocks disguised or potentially malicious applications. Finally, SafenSec users can define a number of different activity control policies to govern the behavior of software applications, blocking or allowing applications based on a set of predefined rules.
