SecureX is an antivirus solution that aims to protect your computer against viruses, trojans and other types of online threats. It provides real-time protection and comes with additional modules for filtering web content and transferred network packets.
Real-time and on-demand scans
Its interface is not the best we've seen, but it offers fast access to all the tools, enabling you to start a scan with just a few clicks. SecureX can perform on-request full system scans or custom ones, giving you the possibility to choose the removable drive or the folder you want it to analyze.
Personal firewall and other useful tools
The integrated personal firewall is designed to automatically analyze the data that is transmitted throughout the network, ensuring that malware does not reach your computer. It has three security levels, namely 'Expert', 'Medium' and 'Low'. Each time a suspicious process is detected, it prompts you for action, asking you whether it should block the process or allow it.
Aside from the security features, SecureX bundles a set of tools that some might find useful. For instance, it can fix infected DOC files and shred files that cannot be deleted manually. The integrated process manager helps you spot suspicious activity, while the on-screen keyboard can be used for typing in sensitive information.
It also features website filtering options, but during our testing, this module failed to work properly, not blocking the access to the websites on the blacklist.
A rather unreliable security tool
SecureX promises to protect your computer during online sessions, but it has not received an update in quite some time, which makes it quite vulnerable to new threats. During our testing, it successfully blocked an attempt to download the EICAR test file, but to our disappointment, failed to automatically delete it. Therefore, it is recommended that you search for a more reliable security solution, with updated signatures, that can really prevent your PC from getting infected.
