CHANTILLY, Va., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Blue Ridge Networks announced the launch of its latest version of AppGuard(®), its revolutionary new zero-day malware protection software product for PC users. AppGuard has been a trusted security solution used successfully by discriminating enterprises and security professionals for some years to protect against zero-day malware.
"The launch of this version of AppGuard tailored for the general user market could not be more timely," said John Higginbotham, CEO of Blue Ridge Networks. "Every day there are literally hundreds of new viruses threatening users that cannot be stopped by traditional antivirus products. AppGuard represents a revolutionary approach to protection from zero-day malware without the need for scanning or updates."
Developed by Blue Ridge using its patented cybersecurity technologies, AppGuard does not rely on signatures, whitelisting, or similar traditional antivirus approaches. Fatih Comlekoglu, Blue Ridge's Chief Software Architect, noted that "AppGuard represents a whole new category of antivirus protection. It isolates and contains malicious code, allowing the PC user to work, bank, shop, and surf online without concern about exposure to viruses on the public internet or on trusted websites."
AppGuard has gained a significant following among online computer security experts. A key participant in the Wilders security blog refers to AppGuard as the "secret key" in the search for protection from zero day exploits.
