Trustix Personal Firewall 2004 Launched

Comprehensive Protection against Online Threats Including Spyware and Pop-Ups

New York, Monday 1st March 2004, Comodo recognized as a leader in the creation of digital identity services and secure business critical infrastructure solutions; today launched Trustix™ Personal Firewall 2004 an easy-to-use and comprehensive firewall for home and small office PC users. Trustix™ Personal Firewall 2004 includes Spyware Remover and Pop-up Blocker which will stop rogue programs compromising system security, prying into confidential data, and tracking online behavior.

Trustix ™ Personal Firewall software provides easy, affordable, and complete protection and will ultimately give you a faster, safer Internet experience. It also features a robust intrusion detection technology to thwart serious threats such as Trojan horses.

"As "always on" connections to the Internet are becoming more affordable, this means that the timeframe to launch an attack has been extended. Add to this the increase in mobile, home workers and remote users and you dramatically increase your vulnerability. Having a personal firewall installed on your PC can dramatically reduce this threat" said Steve Roylance, Technical Marketing Director.

Trustix™ Personal Firewall 2004 has many features including: increased protection as it makes your PC invisible to hackers; stops the loss of your personal information as the Spyware Remover stops people tracking your movements; stops annoying pop-ups which enables you to maintain an efficient ad-free on-line experience; immediate blocking with Net-lock which shuts off potential issues immediately and monitors your connection speed to ensure bandwidth utilization.

"With all these features, Trustix™ Personal Firewall is a powerful tool for the home and small office user. It represents excellent value for money with its inbuilt Pop-up Blocker and Spyware Remover and its ease-of-use means that you can literally install it and forget about it" said Steve Roylance, Technical Marketing Director, Comodo.

As well as being targeted at the home and small office market, Trustix™ Personal Firewall can also be used on a corporate network with an existing enterprise firewall. This can make it difficult for a hacker to take over a whole network in one go as they still have to navigate their way round each workstation firewall to gain total control, thus buying time for detection.

Trustix™ Personal Firewall is the latest in a line of new products from Trustix™. Trustix™ Anti-Virus is due for release in March 2004. For more information on the Trustix range of products visit Trustix.com
