DriveSentry 3.1 Review Part 1: DriveSentry features the latest Anti-Malware technology, but can it provide you the protection you need? — by mrizos on December 12, 2008 to Science & Technology (447 seconds)

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — By including Next Generation antivirus protection from DriveSentry in Security Centre, Microsoft ® customers are finally protected from the very latest virus threats. Known as Zero day threats, they are the preferred method of identity theft on the web. However even these are thwarted with significant ease by the technology known as whitelisting.

“It is vitally important that Microsoft ® consumers are protected from zero day attacks such as the latest variant of the Mdropper Trojan that was reported by Adam J. O’Donnell for ZDNet earlier today. This fresh zero day virus is now in the wild and causes a code execution vulnerability in Microsoft Excel ® 2007 SP1″ said Alan Jones CEO, DriveSentry. He continued “while other security firms scramble to patch their security products, DriveSentry users are already protected, as we use the latest whitelisting technology”

DriveSentry addresses the issues regarding how restrictive whitelisting can be by combining it with multiple protection technologies. Unique to the security industry, DriveSentry offers whitelisting (for the latest protection), blacklisting and heuristics (to reduce interference) and finally live community feedback in one simple package.

As DriveSentry incorporates whitelisting into it’s antivirus application, it is possible to operate the software with a minimal overhead. This major feature means that DriveSentry is an ideal solution for Netbook computers and also means a common issue with antivirus solutions -high memory usage – is avoided.

The product is incredibly simple to setup and use and is specifically designed to protect the user with minimal fuss, what’s more the antivirus protection is free to use!
