Clifton, NJ, April 14, 2015 — The Comodo organization, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions, today announced that its latest version of Comodo Internet Security (CIS) is now globally available, CIS 8.2.
Separating itself from all other security companies, Comodo's patent pending containment technology isolates any untrusted applications looking to be run on a laptop or PC, and automatically contains and kills any unwanted variants.
These untrusted applications can come from an attachment in an email, an Internet virus, malware or simple surfing of the Internet. Comodo's containment technology is built directly into Comodo Internet Security 8.2.
"Comodo Internet Security 8.2 offers automatic and seamless 360° protection to the consumer, combining powerful antivirus protection with our patent-pending containment technology, said Buket Baran, Product Manager, Comodo Internet Security. "For the consumer who uses CIS 8.2, they are benefiting from enterprise-class security right at their own personal endpoint. We are extremely confident in the protection that CIS 8.2 provides that we continue to offer this great product to any consumer who wants it, free of charge. Our goal is to make the connected world a safe environment for all – and CIS is a significant piece in that puzzle.
About Comodo's Containment Technology
Comodo's containment technology – built into CIS 8.2. - ensures that any unknown application that attempts to run on a consumer's PC does so inside a virtual environment – without impact or disruption to the consumer. CIS 8.2 then isolates and analyzes all of the identified unknown files, destroys any malware or bad files, and allows good files to execute seamlessly.
Comodo's containment technology has been battle tested in the most hostile of security environments – the endpoint – where consumers are constantly attacked with the threat of viruses, spam, and other forms of malware. Since the launch of Comodo Internet Security, Comodo introduced a $500 'virus-free' guarantee to any consumer who gets infected using the product – with no valid claims to date.
