A software that can reduce anti-virus scan time by up to 40 minutes has been launched.
Acording to Max Secure Software, which launched the product launched nationally from Pune on Tuesday, comes with smart scan proprietary technology that modifies how a computer is scanned, ultimately helping the user to reduce the scan time by 40 minutes.
“Anti-virus scanning of the PC is extremely boring as it takes a long time and uses lots of system resources like CPU and memory. Hence, we are announcing the launch of the antivirus solution ‘Max Secure Anti Virus Pro’.
"This product has cut the most scan time with best detection rate and active protection," Sanjay Pradhan, founder and CEO of Max Secure Software told reporters here. The Indian company, which has their presence in the US, Europe and Australia with seven per cent global market share, is entering the country after seven years of its operations.
"We have a large customer base worldwide and are confident to be making inroads in the Indian market too," he said.
The product has advanced blocking features which block spyware ActiveX, registry intrusions, browser helper objects, toolbars, hosts file modifications and tracking cookies. It also blocks the bad websites and users can also add the websites they feel are not worth browsing.
This feature also terminates new viruses even before their installation.The software is priced at Rs 1,275 for a year and the company will be rolling a corporate edition of the product next month.
"Thank you for your assistance. Your software is wonderful. I forgot how wonderful until I changed my hard drive and it didn't recognize the registration. My PC slowed down within a day and started getting adware popup. I'm running an anti-virus with firewall and I tried scanning with another spyware software. It didn't fix it. I ran yours software and it found 23 files the other software missed. I am now running up to speed with no pop-ups. Plus your software keeps it running well. I see you tech support is excellent as well. Very good response. Thank you again for your help.Chris
