Privatefirewall is a Personal Firewall and Host Intrusion Prevention application designed to help individuals and businesses protect Windows desktops and servers from malware and unauthorized use. Privatefirewall addresses the operating system and application level vulnerabilities and intrusion techniques that hackers exploit to gain access and cause damage to private systems and data.
“System infection, personal data theft, and other forms of cybercrime have become pervasive, demanding greater vigilance from PC owners to ensure effective protection,” said Privacyware CEO, Greg Salvato. “By eliminating the license fee for Privatefirewall, we’re making it easier for consumers and businesses globally to prevail in an increasingly sophisticated and dangerous online environment with our award-winning personal firewall and proactive HIPS solution.”
Privatefirewall provides an excellent layer of additional protection to the Windows 7 operating system. Beyond unparalleled personal firewall protection, Privatefirewall leverages proprietary HIPS technologies that model and monitor system and application behavior to identify and block activity characteristic of known malware, hacking, phishing and other threat types.
