There is now a very profitable, technically sophisticated and well organized virus and malware industry designed to infiltrate our computers, invade our privacy and rob our online accounts. Conventional anti virus software free or otherwise are largely ineffective against this new wave of computer threats.
PC Matic Home Security has taken all of the computer security features of PC Matic and placed them in a single package. We included Super Shield white list real-time computer and laptop protection. Our white list approach blocks polymorphic viruses and malware that defeat virtually all the other real-time protection anti-virus products on the market.
Lastly, we include vulnerability automatic patch management. Modern viruses enter surreptitiously through holes in out of date software entirely without your knowledge nor your consent. To be sure, one only need to visit a compromised web site and not click on anything, and you can be infected - through a "fileless malware infection". PC Matic Super Shield with application whitelisting antivirus protection closes all of these holes making your computers substantially more secure for online browsing.
SuperShield is a proprietary real time cybersecurity technology designed to take maximum advantage of Cloud Computing to keep your PC safe from online threats. SuperShield has access to the traditional blacklist, but in addition, also uses the industry's only whitelist. SuperShield blocks everything not identified on the whitelist, and sends a notification to the user that the software has been blocked.
The user, if they wish to truly run the software, can go into advanced mode to allow the software to run. Or the user can wait, as all blocked applications are sent to our malware research team and categorized as either safe or malicious within 24 hours.
Using this unique paradigm plus Cloud Computing has allowed us to give you what we believe is the best real time protection on the market.
SuperShield protection is included with all PC Matic security products.
