SAN RAMON, Calif., Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Research shows the world's top five security software vendors are losing significant market share to other industry players, including Faronics, whose innovative solutions target ever-changing threats that some security software might miss.
Market share for the top five vendors dropped to 44.3 percent in 2010 from 60 percent in 2006, in part because other vendors such as Faronics are more agile, responding to end-user needs created by new malware attacks, according to research by Gartner, an information technology research and advisory company.
As more than 60,000 new pieces of malware emerge daily, more and more consumers and businesses are relying on Faronics to protect their workstations. Faronics is the only endpoint software security vendor in the world to provide three essential layers of protection consisting of an anti-virus, application whitelisting, and instant system restore. Faronics Anti-Virus is the first layer of protection, targeting numerous Trojans, viruses and worms. The second layer, Anti-Executable, allows only pre-approved applications to run, stopping remaining viruses and malicious software cold. Deep Freeze, the final layer, memorizes computer settings and configurations, and with every restart, returns the system to its original state and eliminates any threats that are left.
"Faronics software creates an airtight defense against new threats and computer vulnerabilities, and we continue to monitor the technology environment to ensure our products help customers win the battle against evolving threats," said Bim Parmer, VP of Product Management for Faronics. "Our layered security solutions allow end users to focus on their business; not on fixing the havoc that can be created by a malware attack, saving both time and money."
