  • (1888PressRelease) December 12, 2013 - Mumbai - Quick Heal Technologies has launched the 2014 series of its security solutions. The launch promises new detection techniques, easy-to-use manageability and access functions.

    The threat scenario is continuously changing with persistent attacks and social engineering tricks. This requires protection that incorporates technology to detect and remove. However, that is not the only criteria that is desired to be met, users want products that are light, simple to use and eliminates the need for installing additional software.

    "When you think from a user's perspective, it is important to understand that a software should empower the user. It should enable the user to take proactive decisions. Our 2014 series is designed keeping this in mind. We haven't compromised on the advanced detection technologies that are required to deal with today's online safety risk-landscape. At the same time, the feature enhancements allow a greater extent of flexibility in terms of access and use." said Kailash Katkar, Chief Executive Officer, Quick Heal Technologies.

    Quick Heal 2014 series includes industry innovations that empower the user to maintain sound digital hygiene by reducing scan time and detecting new and unknown viruses.

    According to Sanjay Katkar, Chief Technology Officer, Quick Heal Technologies "Quick Heal 2014 brings major user-centric improvements. Up-to-the-minute detections for new and unknown threats, enhanced data security, lower system resource usage and more accessibility functions are a part of the entire package. The importance of behavior based detection cannot be ignored in a scenario where ransomware like Cryptolocker propagates. This has been specifically included in the upgrade to provide an effective counterattack to APTs and targeted threats. A new and upgraded user interface has been incorporated for an even simpler usability experience. This new series is complete with latest technologies while being easy and lucid to work with. The changes are subtle yet powerful and attempt to enhance and smoothen the overall digital experience."

    Quick Heal 2014 brings new features to address the emerging threats and powerful accessibility features to ensure that personal information remains confidential and digital experiences remain unharmed. One of the most important features of 2014 is Advanced Behaviour Based Detection technology.

    This technology works without the help of signature updates and detects the malicious behavior of programs. It controls and reverts the infection done to the system and quarantines the file automatically. The main advantages of such technology are:

    Protects against Zero Day attacks.
    Blocks Advanced Persistent Threats or similar targeted attacks automatically.
    Rootkit, ransomware and other malware behaviors are traced and blocked automatically.
    It instantaneously recognizes activity of Keyloggers, Trojans and Botnet activity and blocks them.
    The scan engine has been enhanced to avoid rescanning of files that have been scanned earlier. This makes the scanning process faster and lighter. More manageability features include:
    Three levels of behavior detection that the user can select from.
    Browser sandbox support extended to Windows 8.

    The streamlined User Interface makes the task of managing security settings easy and hassle-free. Improved and greater levels of security ensure that personal information and data is safe from online threats, Spam and phishing attacks.
