When banking and shopping online
The connection between your bank and your computer is usually encrypted. Decryption of the data transfer takes place in your browser. Cyber criminals use banking Trojans to infiltrate this process. As soon as you carry out a transfer, the attackers manipulate the data being sent. Your money no longer goes to the intended recipient, such as an online shop, but ends up in a different account.
Of course, our virus scanner detects banking Trojans on the basis of their characteristics. If the malware already has its own signature, Internet Security renders the malware harmless while it is being downloaded. Our BankGuard technology also protects you against dangers that are still unknown. The function ensures that your browser only displays checked, genuine
While you send and receive emails
Besides the files on your hard drive and on external storage devices, our virus scanner also checks your emails for malicious content. This applies to all messages you send and receive via the email program on your computer. If the scanner finds nothing, our Anti-Spam function is also activated. The application checks the email for features that are typical of spam. These characteristics are used to calculate a value reflecting the likelihood of it being spam.
In addition to the separate evaluation, the OutbreakShield technology compares the results to a database on the Internet – patterns of viruses and spam emails sent en masse are collated here.
This enables Internet Security to close the gap that exists between the start of a mass mailing and the fight against it in real time, using specially adapted signatures.
The virus monitor checks every file that comes from the web. It stops infected documents, images and the like while they are being downloaded. This means that unnoticed downloads no longer pose a threat to you. When doing so, Internet Security not only relies on hourly updated virus signatures. Besides the signature scan, the software works with a Cloud solution. The properties of current files that contain malware are stored in this online memory. These properties are compared with those in your files – and you quickly find out if everything is OK.
Monitors all incoming and outgoing connections to protect against hackers and spyware – fully automatically or according to your own rules.
Automatically store your encrypted backups in the Cloud – using Dropbox or Google Drive.
No opportunity for extortion Trojans: Internet Security stops criminals encrypting your files.
