We are proud to announce the release of the Quick Heal 2013 product line. So what’s new? Here is a brief rundown of the new features that will help protect your machines from all kinds of unsolicited threats.
Web Browser Sandbox
Quick Heal 2013 brings the much awaited web browser sandbox feature. A sandbox is a virtual environment that isolates threats as and when they arise and blocks them from reaching the entire system. Whether you use Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Firefox, the sandbox ensures that any browser-exploiting threats are unable to affect your system. This protects your system against 0-day malware attacks and tricky keyloggers.
Enhanced Scan Engine with new Machine Learning Abilities
The latest product line includes machine learning capabilities in its enhanced scan engine. This proactively detects new members of known malware families. Machine learning helps the scan engine to detect threats automatically which leads to higher detection rates and a smaller engine size.
Windows 8/Ultrabook Ready
Windows 8 will be released in October 2012 and its revamped changes are highly anticipated. Quick Heal 2013 is ready for Windows 8 and will work seamlessly with this new Windows version, even on Ultrabooks. The product has been successfully tested on the latest RTM build released by Microsoft.
Reduced Virus Database Size
The solution now requires lesser disk space, uses lesser memory for the on-demand scanner and gets installed at a much faster speed. The optimization of signature files used in the 2013 scan engine reduces the Virus Database size by about 100 MB (25%).
Web Security and Parental Control now supports HTTPS Site Blocking
Quick Heal provides you the ability to block HTTPS enabled websites. More and more websites are utilizing this protocol but such domains can now be blocked. Additionally, a user can gain sub-domain control as well. What this means is that now users can block access to https://mail.google.com but allow access to a sub-domain like https://news.google.com.
USB Drive Authentication Support
Quick Heal Total Security users can now use their USB drive even when the Data Protection feature is switched ON. This can be achieved with the help of a password set by a user. This password authenticates the USB drive automatically while it is plugged in.
Quick Heal prides itself for providing world class technical support and the latest product line has several noteworthy offerings. The Quick Heal Dashboard has been enhanced with easy accessibility to the Support Center and Live Chat facility is provided to interact directly with support executives, amongst other features.
In addition to these, other features like Core Protection, Web Security, Email Security, Privacy Protection, PCTuner and PC2Mobile Scan help to provide the best security against ever changing threats.
