Award winning Antivirus vendor Norman, together with anti spyware leader Lavasoft, introduce Norman Ad-aware. This latest addition is offered to protect computers against undesired programs installing themselves while users are connected to the Internet.
Spyware is an increasing problem for Internet users and estimations reflect that over 90 per cent of PC’s are infected by spyware of some description. This can include programs monitoring the user’s Internet habits that can, in turn, make so-called pop-ups appear on the screen. Spyware can also be malicious, designed to relay what the user is writing on his keyboard, or to remain in the computer for a certain time and then destroy files or programs.
Norman Ad-aware offers real time protection against unwanted software. The system follows the user’s net surfing and monitors the incoming flow of information. The solution establishes a protective layer around the computer and searches continuously for intruders trying to break into the system.
In addition, Norman Ad-aware also offers a number of options for the user to define his own security level and the properties of the security system.
Spyware is an increasing security problem for all users and particularly to business. Through unsolicited access to their computers from the Internet companies not only face unwanted advertisements but also reduced system performance, pilfering of computer capacity, sabotage as well as theft of propriety information that could be extremely valuable to say a competitor.
Norman’s partner in this area is Swedish company Lavasoft, the world’s leading supplier of anti spyware solutions. The partnership with Lavasoft is part of Norman’s strategy to focus on its core technology, antivirus, but at the same time develop partnerships in other important security areas to offer maximum protection to it’s customers. Through this strategy, Norman is at the same time both a specialized antivirus company and a broad supplier of security solutions against virus, spam and spyware.
