NetClarity Launches Zero Day Exploit Protection Software at CSI 33rd Annual Computer Security Conference & Exhibition

Bedford, MA (PRWEB) November 6, 2006

NetClarity, Inc., a leading provider of proactive network security products and services, today announced the release of Protection for Windows version 5.0, the company's latest release of its patent-pending endpoint defense technology. Unlike traditional spyware or anti-virus software, this new software release will block zero day threats before a signature test is available. It's designed to protect government, banking and corporate networks with stronger malware defense and data leakage protection.

"We believe that Protection for Windows completely complements our award winning Auditor line for extremely powerful endpoint defense. It is designed to provide our customers with the most cost-effective preemptive, proactive protection of their network assets, keeping them one step ahead of the next threat," said Gil Roeder, CEO, NetClarity.

In addition to these zero day defense features, this release now:

         Blocks USB ports and CD/DVD/floppy usage on systems that need to be locked down

         Prevents installation of unauthorized software including risky ActiveX programs and backdoors

         Detects and quarantines keyboard loggers, remote access Trojans and surveillance tools

         Kills and quarantines NT rootkits and spyware in real-time

         Blocks adware, trackware and spyware websites using host-based URL protection

         Discriminates between usage errors and unauthorized access

         Cannot be shut down by an attacker

         Comes with a built-in event management and alerting console

         Self-defends against known and unknown forms of malware, automatically

         Uses only 5% of the CPU and a small amount of system memory

         Frees up critical resources during a malware attack so users can stay productive

"Protection for Windows is a technological breakthrough in network security. It provides an unparalleled solution for safeguarding the integrity of your information and Microsoft® Windows® laptops, desktops and servers. It's the first software of its kind to reduce CPU consumption during an attack and protect a PC against denial of service," said Gary S. Miliefsky, Founder & CTO, NetClarity, Inc. Miliefsky will also be speaking at the CSI conference in the Critical Issues track and releasing a related whitepaper, entitled "Laws of Exploits" which can be found at Laws of Exploits.

CSI will be distributing free trials of the Protection for Windows – Enterprise Edition to all registered conference attendees in their conference bags. Those only visiting the exhibit hall of the conference can pick up a free trial copy at NetClarity's booth #1031 conveniently located near the attendee break area or by visiting the Protection for Windows website.
