Lavasoft Delivers Solution to Hacker Threats with Personal Firewall 3.0

Well-known anti-spyware pioneer, Lavasoft announced today the release of Personal Firewall 3.0, redesigned with the latest in firewall technology to protect computer users against today's IT security threats, such as hackers, keyloggers, botnets, and other forms of malware that attack through unpatched security holes.

"With uncertainty for Internet privacy and cyber attacks at an all time high, a top priority for computer users is protecting their vulnerable data" says Lavasoft CEO Jason King. According to a survey by NCSA Cyber Security, only 4% of Americans understand Firewalls completely, and over 46% are not sure if they have Firewall protection at all. "This leaves a lot of room to take advantage of unsuspecting computer users" says King.

Lavasoft Personal Firewall has an intuitive user interface, without sacrificing security or control. Building on nine years of firewall expertise, it is specifically designed for the home environment and small-to-medium sized businesses. This new version offers selective network access policies and allows PC users to take advantage of the convenient learning mode in order to reduce the number of alerts requiring a response.

Functionality and enhancements include:

  • Packet-filtering through a two-way firewall
  • Host protection to proactively monitor and block attacks
  • Web Control to protect from corrupt websites and drive-by downloads
  • Low resource consumption
  • Full Windows Vista and 64-bit platform support
