FAQ for Comodo Internet Security V8
- 1. What makes Internet Security better than my current Antivirus and Firewall combo?
- Internet Security is a security suite plus. More than just an antivirus program, it also includes an award-winning firewall, host intrusion prevention, a sandbox for untrusted software, anti-malware and buffer overflow protection to deliver comprehensive protection against today's diverse range of threats.
- 2. What makes Comodo's Internet Security product different from the others?
- It's simple: prevention-based, Default Deny Protection. It works by only allowing trusted files to run on your system. Files that are not trusted are run inside the new sandbox
- 3. What is the sandbox and how does it protect me?
- The sandbox is a virtual operating environment created within your computer for unknown and untrusted programs. Internet Security automatically runs untrusted programs in the sandbox where they cannot make changes to processes, programs or data on your 'real' system. This protection goes well beyond traditional Antivirus software by ensuring any brand new viruses are completely isolated and cannot cause damage.
- 4. Will programs run OK in the Sandbox?
- Yes. Applications in the sandbox are run under a carefully selected set of privileges and will write to a virtual file system and registry instead of the real system. This means untrusted (but harmless) applications have the freedom to operate as usual while malicious programs are prevented from accessing or infecting your computer. This provides smoothest and most secure user experience possible.
- 5. Do programs stay in the Sandbox forever?
- No – the sandbox is the first part of a trust decision engine. After an unknown application has been placed in the sandbox, Internet Security will also automatically queue it for submission to Comodo labs where it will be analyzed by our technicians. If it is found to be harmless then it will be added to the global safe list that will be downloaded by all Internet Security users in the next round of updates. Once it is added to the safe list, the application will no longer be run in the sandbox by Internet Security. If it is found to be malicious then it will be added to Comodo's list of malware signatures and will be deleted after the next round of updates.
- 6. Is it free for business users too?
- Yes. However, enterprises looking to implement Internet Security on large networks of workstations would benefit from the centralized management capabilities of Comodo Endpoint Security Manager (CESM).
- 7. Can I install only the Firewall or only the Antivirus?
- Yes – you are given the option to install exactly the components you want during setup.

Download Antivirus Database
Our AV Labs around the world publish existing, newly detected or recently modified virus definitions. The complete antivirus database is available for download. This is useful for those users that wish to manually replace the existing database.
- Viruscope monitors the activities of processes running on your computer and alerts you if they attempt to take suspicious actions. Apart from forming yet another layer of malware detection and prevention, the sub-system represents a valuable addition to the core process-monitoring functionality of the Behavior Blocker by introducing the ability to reverse potentially undesirable actions of software without necessarily blocking the software entirely. This provides more granular control over otherwise legitimate software which requires certain actions to be taken in order to run correctly. Viruscope works using a constantly expanded list of activity 'recognizers', which allow the software to detect, block and undo many potentially unwanted actions.
- Website Filtering
- The new website filtering section gives Comodo Internet Security (CIS Version 8) users a powerful and easy way to allow or block access to specific websites. Website access rules can be created for particular users of your computer, which makes this feature very useful for both home and work environments. For example, parents can block juvenile users from visiting inappropriate websites while companies can prevent employees from visiting leisure sites during working hours. You also have the option to create a log event whenever a user tries to visit a website which is in conflict with a rule. Comodo Internet Security (CIS Version 8) ships with several preset lists (or 'categories') of URLs which can be added to rules that you create - including the 'Malicious sites category', the 'Comodo Safe category', the 'Comodo Phishing category' and the 'Comodo Malware category'.
- UI Update
- The Comodo Internet Security (CIS Version 8) user interface features several design and UX enhancements which allow you to accomplish tasks faster while keeping you better informed than ever before. New themes include the bold new 'Metro' theme.

Best Anti-virus Ever
I have been using Comodo off and on for years. When no one thought this antivirus would be, so good my PC was always protected by it. I have used other programs but like the prodigal son I always come back home to Comodo. My friends use it as well. With no hesitation, I would recommend the product free or pay subscription does not matter as long is Comodo.
Very good product for home use
I've been using Comodo for years at home and it works flawless with many good implemented features (HIPS, etc). The only thing that I really miss is to be able to verify the downloaded installer files against published checksums. It's a minimum requirement for security related software.
Comodo is better than kaspersky. true
Wow comodo internet security is smarter than kaspersky 2016. I think comodo internet security component is advanced and very intelligent antivirus component. But pcmag editors says comodo firewall not block exploit attack.
It has always been the best experience using comodo internet security as my security software.
