Immunet Protect New Free Antivirus for 2010

Monday, 10 May 2010 21:51:16 (US Mountain Standard Time, UTC-07:00)

    Immunet is a small Palo Alto company that has just made its foray into the antivirus market.  Their latest full version is Immunet Protect.  The best part about this software is that it is completely free.  There is no trial period and the software doesn’t expire.  Why might a user ask? While we’re not completely sure, it seems that the company is just starting out and simply wants to get the word out about their great antivirus.  The firm even provides a free support 800 number from their humble offices in California.

    Immunet is a new form of cloud antivirus that resembles Panda Cloud Antivirus and ThreatFire Antivirus.  It utilizes collective intelligence or scan data from all of its active users to analyze any suspicious file found.  This means that a user’s computer doesn’t have to be dependent on antivirus definitions or an antivirus discovery lab.  The software practically runs on autopilot to find the latest viruses and neutralize them in almost real-time.  To give one an active picture of the massive cloud database, as of March 2010 there were almost 70,000 users running Immunet and the software was protecting against almost 7 million threats.

    In everyday use Immunet Protect hardly impacts system performance.  On our test system the software used minimal resources and only required  a 4 megabyte download. The best functionality of Immunet is the ability to run with any antivirus product.  The software will only increase ones protection against undiscovered viruses and not subtract from a users core security software.
