ThreatFire Review

Fernando Ortega
Protects you when your traditional AV cannot. New behavior-based security
A review of ThreatFire by Fernando Ortega

Many spyware protection applications rely on similar technology to help protect your PC against infection but ThreatFire adds to that by using an intelligent system to learn and recognize strange behaviour, making it an effect defense against spyware/malware infections or attacks.

PC Tools, the creator of ThreatFire, calls this system protection against Zero-Day threats. They content that signature-based AntiVirus programs are ineffective because new viruses and malware threats appear daily and traditional AntiVirus software is unable to defend against them.

Is this system effective? Probably and many raves about ThreatFire promise it.

The program overall runs on your system without using many resources, giving you another reason to choose this as your basic AntiVirus protection solution. Another important reason for you to give ThreatFire a try is the fact that it's a free download available under a Freeware license for personal use.
