COMODO Internet Security Named Best Free AV Security in CNET Download.com Poll

CNET  Comodo Scores 42% in Dynamic Poll by CNET Compared with AVAST at 18% and Panda at 11%

JERSEY CITY, NJ, March 11, 2011 - Comodo is pleased to announce that results are in on the recent CNET poll on download.com and Comodo Internet Security 5 has been named the company of choice for AntiVirus at 42 percent popularity rate for FREE Antivirus software.

"Not only are we good," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO and chief security architect, "But we're the BEST at protecting the computer from viruses and malware and it's FREE, according to this latest customer vote."

Comodo Internet Security 2011 is the free, multi-layered, security application that offers complete protection from viruses, Trojans, worms, buffer overflows, zero-day attacks, spyware and hackers. Built from the ground upwards with your security in mind, Comodo Internet Security combines powerful Antivirus protection, an enterprise class packet filtering firewall, advanced host intrusion prevention, application control and anti-spyware in one supremely powerful application.

The latest version sees a major leap forward in security and usability with the addition of cloud based virus-scanning and behavior analysis of unrecognized files - making CIS 2011 unbeatable at detecting zero-day attacks. Under default settings, unknown and untrusted files are automatically scanned by our cloud-based virus scanners then, while the file undergoes behavior analysis on our cloud server, it is run in a sandbox on your local machine so that it cannot modify or affect data on your 'real' system.

What's new in this version: Version 5.3 features: full IPv6 Support in firewall, Rootkit Scanner - Hidden registry keys, files and folders are detected, 5 skins from COMODO, including a native windows skin.
