SafenSoft SysWatch Personal protects your computer proactively by controlling how applications behave. Application control keeps your whole system in a “known-good” state, preventing hacker attacks and malicious software from activating. Because SysWatch Personal does not need to identify individual threats in order to block them, it doesn’t need all those signature updates required by traditional security software to provide reliable protection.
The new SafenSoft SysWatch Personal is the personal computer protection based on HIPS protection technologies.
Application control activity prevents hidden execution and installation of unwarranted code. Any untrusted code can also be run in sandbox mode and that allows the user work with potentially unsafe applications without any risks. Malicious software cannot access or modify user data it doesn’t have access to which means that hidden Trojans will not be able to violate user privacy even if the software that includes them works as intended. Full system profile creation after the product is installed means the personal computer will be always kept in “known-good” state.
SafenSoft SysWatch Personal includes an antivirus scanner with BitDefender database.
Whenever a new application is launched, SafenSoft SysWatch Personal lets you decide whether it should be launched without restrictions, launched in an isolated area (sandbox) or blocked altogether. This prevents unknown applications – which malware always is – from activating on your PC. Updates of existing applications are processed automatically.
Application activity control
Controls how different applications can access files and folders, USB drives, registry keys, external devices, and network resources. You can create your own rules to control application activity.
SafenSoft SysWatch Personal has a built-in antivirus scanner that lets you scan files for known malicious code and repair infected files if possible. It also enables you to scan unknown applications before launching them and to perform regular system scans if you don’t already have a good antimalware program installed. The scanner will also detect and neutralize malicious files before they are launched.
Protects SafenSoft SysWatch Personal from being disabled by malicious software. System changes and uninstallation are password-protected.
Because SafenSoft SysWatch Personal does not need to identify a threat in order to protect against it, unknown threats and exploits are as easily detected as known ones. The level of protection does not depend on signature updates because all malicious activity is blocked.
Unknown or potentially dangerous applications are launched in an isolated area called a sandbox so they cannot affect other processes or the system itself. This ensures that malicious activity is blocked without waiting for updated signatures or security patches.
Because SafenSoft SysWatch Personal doesn’t necessarily use the pattern-matching system that’s at the heart of traditional antimalware products, there is no risk of a good application being classified as bad. Once you’ve classified the application as good or bad at first launch, the question never arises again. Antivirus scanner can be used on demand or turned off entirely.
No signature updates required
By relying on a list of trusted applications and controlling application launch and activity, SafenSoft SysWatch Personal has no need for daily updates or constant Internet connection.
No system slowdown
SafenSoft SysWatch Personal does not scan your system the way a traditional antimalware product does, since it has already set the rules for how all of your applications can act. So your system performance stays fast and laptop batteries are not drained, while your security remains high at all times.
At the heart of SysWatch is the unique, patent-pending V.I.P.O. (Valid Inside Permitted Operations) technology, which combines three layers of protection:
D.I.C. (Dynamic Integrity Control)
Protects all executable software on the system by detecting any unauthorized activation attempt and preventing the process from launching before damage can occur. Maintains the system in a known-good state.
D.S.E. (Dynamic Sandbox Execution)
A specially-designated user account for potentially vulnerable software that uses system-level privilege controls to block dangerous software activity. Also protects the PC from software vulnerability exploits.
D.R.C. (Dynamic Resource Control)
Controls how different applications can access files and folders, registry keys, external devices, and network resources.
NOTE! SafenSoft SysWatch Personal is reliable proactive protection against malware and breaches. SafenSoft SysWatch Personal is not designed to recover PC after the fact of malware infection.
