Privatefirewall is a multi-layered endpoint security software for Windows

Quote
Desktop Security from Privacyware -  Windows 7 & Vista Compatible!

The web may be free, but we all know that to safely bank online, buy music, software, or books, or even simply surf the web, there is a price to pay. To combat online threats, firewall, anti-virus and anti-spyware software have become essential investments for any home or business computer. These programs monitor and control system access and scan and remove your system of malicious or spying software.

But the range and sophistication of malicious software and hacking techniques is rapidly expanding and against which traditional software solutions do not provide a proactive defense. Now, Privacyware meets this need with Privatefirewall ― a proactive, multi-layered defense solution for Windows desktops and servers. What's more - Privatefirewall is now absolutely FREE of charge.

Breakthrough Features for Ultimate Malware and Intrusion Defense!
 
Privatefirewall features signature-less, behavior-based anti-malware and desktop defense capabilities comprised of several distinct technology layers designed to block or mitigate the damage caused by intrusion, virus and other malware attacks. Beyond unparalleled personal firewall protection, Privatefirewall includes the following layers of proactive, behavior-based defense technology:

-          Application Monitor/Manager
-          Registry Monitor
-          Process Monitor/Manager
-          Email Anomaly Analyzer/Manager
-          System Anomaly Analyzer
 

Privatefirewall also detects malware and intrusions based on behaviors characteristic of unauthorized system use. Some of these include:

-          Attempts to access a protected registry area
-          Attempts to access a protected object
-          Attempts to Initiate a foreign process
-          Attempts to control Windows service
-          Attempts to create a DNS request
-     Attempts to initiate outgoing TCP traffic

Privatefirewall ― the proactive, multi-layered defense solution for Windows desktops and servers. Get Privatefirewall today ― it's absolutely FREE for personal and commercial use!

General Capabilities ―
Privatefirewll's layered approach to PC and endpoint defense addresses the Windows vulnerabilities and progressive techniques that hackers exploit to gain unauthorized system access and deliver malicious payloads. Privatefirewall provides Application Security by providing detailed alerts for incoming and outgoing application-specific Internet traffic. Privatefirewall also models and monitors system behavior to identify and block activity characteristic of known malware, hacking, phishing and other threat types so that personal computer users and IT managers within small, medium or large organizations can more effectively and proactively protect the environments and private data for which they are responsible.
 
Although Privatefirewall will detect, block and quarantine known and new forms of malicious software and other threats, it does not remove the malware. Privatefirewall is therefore an ideal complement to conventional virus and spyware scanning software. Neither Privatefirewall nor any other single layer of protection should be solely relied on to protect your system. Privatefirewall enables you to be aware of the activity on your computer and detects, blocks and alerts you to suspicious activity. These days, what seems normal online (a greeting card, banking site, attachment, etc.) may not be. Privatefirewall enables you to be aware, cautious and better protected.
 
Windows OS Exploits ―
For example, the WMF exploit allows a hacker to gain unauthorized access to your computer. In this scenario, a compromised/attack computer will send you a graphical file with the trusted extension “.wmf”. Internet Explorer will identify this legitimate file extension and will instruct the operating system to process it. Here’s where it all goes wrong. The file will in turn invoke another process, (which typically has an unusual name, i.e. a.exe). Privatefirewall will detect and block this “untrusted” process and generate an alert.
 
Malware: Virus, Spware, Trojan and Worm Defense ―
Viruses, Spyware, Trojans and Worms are all forms of malware that replicate, spread, steal personal information, and inflict damage to computers. Privatefirewall detects activity characteristic of malware infection such as attempts to access protected file objects, execution of WinAPI functions, and initiation of unknown processes, among others. Once detected, Privatefirewall blocks and quarantines the malware and alerts you of the security incident.
 
Rootkit Defense ―
By simple definition, a rootkit is a collection of software tools that an intruder can install on a computer to execute whatever criminal activity they have in mind. Rootkits are a particularly tricky form of malware to detect and defend against, as they are nearly invisible to most types of systems monitoring software. They allow an attacker to execute malicious programs invisibly as the rootkit is able to conceal files, running processes, and/or system data. Rootkits are a growing problem ― According to Microsoft, approximately 20 percent of the malware deleted by its malicious software removal tool are rootkits.

Privatefirewall can guard against rootkit-related attacks on a number of levels. Privatefirewall can detect when a rootkit is being installed by identifying when a registry key value is being modified. Privatefirewall can also detect rootkit activity based on the process, WinAPI call or executable that is launched as an output of the rootkit’s payload.
 
Hacker Defense ―
Hackers are criminals that leverage system vulnerabilities, social engineering, and other techniques to break into computer systems for the purpose of amusement, theft, vandalism, or other crime. Privatefirewall prevents hacker attacks by restricting access to unauthorized areas of your computer and controlling the manner in which applications, processes, and other system features operate. In addition, Privatefirewall provides additional layers of protection though system and email anomaly detection components that baseline normal computer operation and detect unacceptable deviations from typical use caused by intrusion (hackers) and viruses, spyware and other forms of malware. Hackers and their techniques continually evolve and become more effective at hiding. No security solution provides 100% protection from attacks, but Privatefirewall offers unique capabilities focused on deviations of typical behavior and can therefore adapt and evolve along with the threats themselves.
