New Internet security software from Appin

Appin Security Group on Monday announced the launch of Fort Appin, a new Internet security software that defends computers against viruses, hackers, spam, and identity theft. Priced at Rs. 750 for single user annual license for businesses, the software also has a special module built at Appin labs that does heuristic-based malware blocking and removal thereby providing zero-day protection even when the signatures have not been updated.

According to the Appin Security Group CEO and Founder Rajat Khare, “We understand that today’s business solutions need to go far beyond basic virus detection and prevention. Keeping this in mind, Fort Appin solutions have been designed keeping in mind the growing Internet usability across India with special emphasis on the rapidly evolving SME industry. This is one of few anti-viruses where the signature update will happen from India itself insuring higher speeds and no suspicion of spyware being introduced in the update.”

Talking about the advantages of the new software, Mr. Khare said Fort Appin helps companies to implement a unified management platform for remote installation, besides allowing configuration and reporting of all Fort Appin clients, server and gateway products deployed throughout the network. “It provides IT administrators with network-wide visibility into all malware related incidents. It also proactively audits hardware and software assets within the network, besides remotely configuring and managing client and server system settings,” Mr. Khare added.
