Comodo Launches Latest Version of its Free, Award-Winning Firewall Pro (V 3.0) and takes Desktop Security to a New Level

Jersey City, NJ, November 27, 2007 - To help consumers protect their computers from all forms of viruses and malware, Comodo, a leading Internet security company today announced the release of Comodo Firewall Pro Version 3.0. Comodo Firewall Pro protects millions of computers worldwide and this new release advances computer security from being a defensive, reactive system to a preventative and proactive solution based on a new A-VSMART™ technology architecture. A-VSMART is short for "Anti; Virus, Spyware, Malware, Rootkit and Trojan" and represents a breakthrough in PC security architecture. While still free, Comodo's next generation firewall helps customers more effectively prevent virtually all types of threats from penetrating a computer and incorporates the latest security prevention technologies available. Despite the sophisticated level of prevention, the software remains easy for the home user to install and use "out of the box".

Comodo Firewall Pro (V3.0) does a better job of protecting computers from malware than conventional solutions because it operates from a prevention rather than a detection perspective, and incorporates a sophisticated, layered threat management approach. Unlike detection/ signature-based firewalls and anti-virus solutions that allow all applications to gain access to system resources and then try to detect previously identified viruses by their signature, Comodo Firewall Pro takes the opposite approach. Comodo A-VSMART architecture allows only those applications known to be safe to gain access to computer resources, greatly reducing the probability of damage occurring.
Breakthrough Technology: A-VSMART™ Technology Architecture

The key component of this next generation firewall lies in its A-VSMART (Anti: Virus, Spyware, Malware, Rootkit, Trojan) technology architecture that both proactively monitors internal system applications and processes while also actively monitoring all incoming and outgoing Internet traffic.

Prevention Technologies Delivers Better Protections and Benefits

The culmination of years of development, Comodo Firewall Pro delivers advanced preventative protection that offers a number of key benefits designed to:

* Provide virtually bulletproof protection against root-kits, inter-process memory injections, key-loggers and more
* Authenticate the integrity of every program before allowing it access to system resources
* Alert users every time an unknown or untrusted application attempts to run or install
* Block Viruses, Trojans and Spyware before they can ever get into a system
* Prevent unauthorized modification of critical operating system files and registry entries
* Give users granular level of control to determine access rights and privileges on a global or per application basis using the flexible and easy to understand interface.

Comodo Firewall Pro with its A-VSMART architecture provides a highly effective, efficient and lightweight system for worry-free desktop security to manage the variable and fluid threat landscape.
