HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Total Defense, a global leader in Internet security, today announced the roll out of its new Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security product. The new product provides end-to-end protection against malware, ransomware, identity theft and other hazards encountered online along with automated patching of vulnerable applications, complete PC optimization and convenient cloud-based backup. Response to the product's beta release has been overwhelmingly positive, with testers finding its usability to be far simpler and less obtrusive than conventional anti-virus software. Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security covers all household PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones.
Reported one beta user, "the product is above and beyond all the other virus protection software we have used. The first day it was installed, it caught more malware than two other security systems had [caught] combined (in months of use)."
"Very stable, easy to use, and reliable. I believe this is the best security software I've used to date. Thank you so much for this opportunity," added another tester.
Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security includes multiple features that make operating online safer, more efficient and simpler across devices. It includes Z-Day Application Defender that checks every application that attempts to run and prevents malware infections.
"We are absolutely thrilled with the response we've gotten from our beta customers and are confident our buyers will have the same great experience," said Larry Guerin EVP and General Manager at Total Defense. "Online attacks and threats to privacy can affect anyone, on any device, and Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security provides an automated, simple-to-use solution that allows people to affordably protect every device in the household."
Total Defense provides dual malware scanning engines, a client-based scanning engine augmented by cloud-based scanning technology to enhance protection. UNLIMITED also includes a vulnerability protection feature that automatically patches the most common applications once an update becomes available from the software publisher.
In addition, Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security also prevents viruses, ransomware, rootkits and Trojan horses from infecting PCs, Macs, tablets and mobile devices. It also provides download protection for the most popular browsers – Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox – verifying websites in real time and notifying users of potential dangers. A Social Network Defender function instantly detects threats on social sites and alerts users.
Total Defense UNLIMITED Internet Security reports enable users to monitor system status on an ongoing basis and via monthly reports detailing protection activities. The PC Optimization function keeps computers operating at peak performance, and an online backup feature seamlessly backs up important files, including pictures, documents, music and other digital essentials to a secure offsite location.
"Overall, I feel it is something different in the world of AntiVirus and Defense software," reported another UNLIMITED beta tester. "…I liked how things were put together and easily accessed - this is a product I would use and recommend to others."
