<p>Avalanche Technology Group, distributors of GRISOFT’s award-winning AVG Anti-Virus in Australia and New Zealand, today announced the release of GRISOFT’s ewido anti-spyware 4.,0 extending its comprehensive protection against a wide array of security threats.</p>
<p>ewido anti-spyware is now the only anti-spyware software to include a powerful combination of advanced security features such as generic unpacking of compressed malware, true memory scanning, heuristics, and use of binary signatures providing the most thorough analysis of programs that place users’ computers at risk.</p>
<p>ewido anti-spyware also provides extended analysis tools that allow users to manually inspect their computers for suspicious activities by tracking running processes, start-up entries, current Internet connections, and detection of browser plug-ins. It supports Fast User Switching - a feature of Windows XP – that allows several users to be simultaneously logged onto a workstation without compromising security.</p>
<p>“Version 4.0 is the most advanced anti-spyware program available today,” said Grisoft’s Andreas Rudyk. “Its unique combination of the most advanced malware detection and user friendly features demonstrates our commitment to continuously develop and improve protection for our customers.”</p>
<p>Peter Cameron, Director of Avalanche, said “Our products now go beyond AVG Anti-Virus and AVG plus Firewall to provide a truly comprehensive malware solution. We can protect against rapidly growing threats like spyware, adware, dialers, keyloggers, trojans and worms. When combined with AVG Anti-Virus, our users can sleep a little easier knowing that we’re covering their backs,” Cameron said.</p>
