Well-known anti-spyware pioneer Lavasoft today announced the global release of Ad-Aware Total Security, an all-new version of its flagship product that combines leading malware detection and removal power with multiple layers of additional protection for complete online security and PC health.

Ad-Aware Total Security is a new all-in-one security solution that bolsters Lavasoft's industry leading anti-spyware and anti-virus technology with a range of additional security and optimization features – including a firewall, anti-phishing, identity theft protection, anti-spam, parental control, online backup, data recovery, and system tuning.

According to the security researchers at Lavasoft's Malware Labs, cyber criminals have become stealthier, unleashing an unprecedented amount of malicious programs and increasingly complex scams, calling for deeper levels of online protection. At the same time, it is apparent that computer users spend more and more time online, stressing the need for products that work effortlessly and efficiently.

“We know that, at the end of the day, our users just want to be able to use the Internet safely, without worrying about cyber criminals and their malicious tactics, as they socialize, shop, bank and work online. Lavasoft works diligently to make sure Ad-Aware users and customers around the world have the peace of mind to do just that; it's why we continue to improve the products we offer, to develop and provide the solid security, features, and options needed to stay secure,” says Johnny Widerlund, Senior Technologies Director at Lavasoft.
