First Look: Lavasoft Anti-Virus Helix

After setting the standard for anti-spyware with our Ad-Aware software and providing an acclaimed personal firewall, our latest product offering takes on another critical piece of the security equation – viruses. Lavasoft Anti-Virus Helix is in the final stages of development and is coming soon to a PC near you!

With virus and hacker attacks on the rise, going online without layered protection is no longer an option. Most Internet users are all too aware of the fact that, at the most basic level, effective anti-spyware, firewall, and anti-virus protection are needed to maintain online security.

“It’s our mission to provide our customers with the layered solutions needed to ensure that they have control of their PCs and, ultimately, their privacy and security,” says Lavasoft CEO Jason King.

“And we recognize that our varied customers require different types of solutions. The release of our standalone anti-virus software is in direct response to the individual wants and needs of our customers.”
