The next step in anti-malware protection, providing an easy to configure security software with cloud antivirus protection and rootkit removal capabilities
The main characteristic of this cloud-based security tool is that it relies heavily on the Immunet Community, which gains new members every day. The information it gathers about the online threats from the cloud and the community is designed to keep your computer safe and virus-free.
The interface is well-organized and comprises three columns that allow you to access the Immunet Community (displays the local community graph and notices), view the protection summary and access the product settings. The 'Computer' column is where you can view the activity summary, access the quarantine section and start a new scan.
There are three scanning options that you can choose from. The 'Flash Scan' only verifies the running processes, while selecting 'Full Scan' checks the entire computer for potential threats. You can also scan user-defined locations using the 'Custom Scan' option.
The application is based on three detection engines, ETHOS, SPERO and ClamAV, designed to provide you with real-time protection. If any possible malicious or suspicious running process, applications or files are identified, it automatically moves them to the Quarantine section, but you can also set it to prompt you for action.
Immunet Protect can scan archive and packed files, as well as verify newly installed applications. Scan scheduler, protection exclusions and tray notifications are other advantages that this software comes with.
In addition to this, it does not need a large amount of system resources and enabling the 'Game Mode' ensures that your gaming session runs without interruptions.
Immunet Protect is an easy to use community-based protection tool that can isolate the threats it detects on your system. However, it is only recommended as a companion antivirus and can be used by those who feel that their current security solution is just not enough.
