New Features for Antivirus 2012
As more people connect to the Internet online criminals are getting more sophisticated with the techniques they use to commit unlawful acts. Antivirus programs have continually been adding new features to accommodate the protection requirements which are necessary to safely navigate the Internet.
So what are some of the new features that are being added for antivirus 2012?
One of the new features in a lot of antivirus 2012 programs is a concept known as sandboxing which provides a safer way for you to browse the Internet. The sandbox portion of antivirus programs is capable of trapping any malware or tracking cookies. This prevents it from affecting any other programs in your operating system. Once you close your browser the tracking cookies and malware is deleted from your browser which also helps to protect your privacy.
Some of the antivirus 2012 programs will offer you to the option of backing up your files and data on a secure remote server so you can access it anywhere at any time. This also prevents you from losing all of your files and data in the event your PC becomes infected with a virus or malware.
Sometimes when you send you files to the Recycle Bin and then empty it your files are not totally deleted from your PC. If your PC becomes infected with spyware the files you deleted are not protected from prying eyes. For this reason, antivirus 2012 programs add a shredding feature to ensure anyone with unauthorized access cannot read files which you have sent to the Recycle Bin.
Improved Virus and Malware Analysis
As a result of the increase in viruses and malware many of the antivirus 2013 programs have heightened security features that analyze and block anything that may look suspicious. Most of these programs will notify you when something looks suspicious. If it turns out to be a legitimate program you are provided with the option to allow access to your PC.
Encryption is the process of protecting files from unauthorized access both in storage and during the process of transmission. Antivirus 2012 programs offer this feature as an added measure of security in the event your PC becomes infected with spyware.
Improved Definition Database
Sometimes an antivirus and anti-malware program is only as good as its communication with the proper definition databases. These are databases that collect the latest spyware and malware definitions which are updated into the virus protection program you are using.
Without comprehensive updates your antivirus and anti-malware program will be unable to identify the latest viruses and malware if it is present on your PC. Antivirus 2013 programs have contact with quality and comprehensive definition databases to ensure the program always has the very latest updates for better protection.
These are some of the up and coming improvements in antivirus 2012 programs which will help you to better protect your PC as well as your files and folders. If you are following antivirus 2012 developments you will be seeing many more features to be released by the end of this year.
