Let us go through in details through its characteristics and understand why it is recommended so far.
Scans without Affecting the Speed of Your Computer
Many users afraid to scan their computer on regular basis just because it slows down the whole computer and they can’t do their task easily until the scan is finished. While a scan is performed, programs take longer time to open, computer freezes a lot and it becomes essential to postpone our work and stand by.
The good news is that VIPRE Internet Security 2012 won’t affect the performance of your computer while scans are being performed. You can start the scan process and at the same time play games, do office work or watch movies without interruptions. You’ll no longer notice slowed computer performance. It ensures maximum security without compromising the performance of your computer.
Blanket Features with Enhanced Security & Privacy Protection
VIPRE Internet Security 2012 protects your computer from computer threats, such as, viruses, spyware, malware, malicious scripts, adware, worms, Trojans and keyloggers. It includes a firewall program and spam-blocker feature as well.
Privacy and protection of personal information is another add-on feature which makes the antivirus better. A user can permanently delete sensitive files from his hard disk and erase the computer & internet history if he wishes to share his computer/ laptop with others. Now days, it’s hard to find such an antivirus which provides all these blanket features.
A firewall is a security program based upon rules designed to permit secured and deny unsecure network transmissions. It thereby protects your computer against the threat that may come from the internet.
As a user of VIPRE Internet Security 2012, you’ll have free access to its firewall program. Along with the antivirus protection, your computer will be protected from external threats and unsecure connections through the latest firewall technology introduced.
Resident Shield, also known as, Real-Time Scan, is a feature which continuously protect your computer by monitoring the suspicious activities done by open programs, files, web based tasks or the storage media (like External Hard Disk, CD ROM, USB Flash Drives) connected to your computer.
Resident Shield is an important feature introduced in VIPRE Internet Security 2012. When a new disc is inserted or a USB Flash Drive is connected, the antivirus automatically starts scanning the root files so that harmful files, objects or scripts will be deleted by your confirmation. In the same manner, when you browse the internet, the files downloading on your computer are automatically scanned so that a virus won’t able to enter into your computer.
Large Virus Definitions
A Virus Definition is nothing but the list of all types of viruses along with their recorded behaviours. For instance, an antivirus program may include names of computer viruses, such as, Minimax, Black Monday, Disk Killer and Squisher and their commonly recorded behaviours.
Larger the virus definition is; more chances that a virus can be identified. VIPRE Internet Security 2012 comes with large virus definition so that all types of computer viruses can be easily detected. Since automatic update feature is available, there is no need for you to manually start the virus definition update process.
