RISING, the well-known security manufacturer, announces that Rising Firewall has won Checkmark Desktop Firewall Certification.
Rising Firewall has passed this test run by Western Coast Labs based on the following criteria: it achieves an effective level of protection against hostile attacks from outside and prevents unauthorized local applications from accessing the local network. Rising Firewall is the first security product in China which passes Checkmark Desktop Firewall test of Western Coast Labs and the third in the world.
RISING Firewall is a customizable personal information security product designed to protect your computer from attacks while online. The five shinning key features of this software that led to getting this certification are:
1. Multi-Account Management by the Firewall
The firewall provides two accounts: an administrator account and a user account. A function is provided by the firewall which enables the switch between the two accounts.
2. Trojan Identification Technology
Through heuristic virus scan technology, when a program is connected to the Internet, the Trojan scanner will scan the program.
3. IE Function Call Interception
As IE provides an open Com component call interface, it may be called by malicious programs. This function checks the program which needs to call the IE interface.
4. Anti-Phishing and Anti-Trojan Websites
The website provides a set of powerful and upgradeable blacklist rules, which contain a list of websites that are illegal, highly risky and/or highly hazardous. Using the blacklist rules, any access to the listed websites will be prohibited.
5. Module Test
The firewall can control access to the Internet by all modules. When an application accesses the Internet, the firewall will check the authorization of the module to see if approval has been given.
