ThreatFire - Behavioral Virus and Spyware Protection
Review by on
Nowadays, viruses have become the main threat for the security of computer systems, because they are becoming more and more advanced and it's harder to remove them. Antivirus programs are numerous and everyone of them pretends that it can remove every type of virus or spyware, but in reality they don't behave as expected and they don't remove viruses properly, giving the user a false sense of security. A software that can truly and efficiently deal with viruses, malware, spyware and other type of threats is ThreatFire. Unlike most of the other free antivirus programs on the market, Threatfire is not a stand-alone antivirus program. Instead, Threatfire supplements an existing security app with highly effective behavioral analysis that can stop malware based solely on what the file tries to do on your PC.

The software install quickly and doesn't require much effort from the user to complete this process. Everything is point and click. The resources required for running this application are lower than the the one's required by other similar programs. Also, every version of Microsoft Windows is supported.

The interface has a graphical form and it's well organized in tabs. After running the software, it displays a list of the newest threats for which it offers protection and also shows some statistics regarding the number of events and files scanned and also notifies the user if he has the latest version.

ThreatFire offers two possibilities of scanning the system, either using the Intelli-Scan, which deals only with certain locations where it's likely to find viruses or using the full scan, which searches for viruses in all the areas of the computer. Because the first method scans only a part of the system, it takes little time to complete and it's recommended to be used by most users.

When a virus is detected, the file infected can be cured, deleted or moved to a safe quarantine. Here, the user can manage every file and he can delete it safely if he considered it is no longer required. Exclusively for advanced users, ThreatFire features an Advanced Tools tab, from where the user can configure custom rules for dealing with the behavior of certain programs. Beginners should not use this because a slight mistake could lead to a security problem.

The settings tab of ThreatFire allows configuring the sensitivity level of the software. A higher sensitivity will result in a higher protection, but can also display false alarms. The software's virus database is renewed daily and can be updated automatically or manually, using the Smart Update feature. ThreatFire doesn't rely only on virus definition files, but can also analyze the behavior of some programs or files, in order to detect an unknown virus or a hacker attempt.

Pros:
It allows setting the sensitivity level in a simple way, so even beginner can use this function without problems. Also, it includes an update features, for renewing the virus database. Besides that, it can analyze the behavior of applications and files for finding new and unknown viruses and also hacker attacks.

Cons:
The custom rule feature it's a bit difficult to use and seems a little confusing, even for more experienced users.

ThreatFire is a great software for keeping the computer system safe using the latest antivirus technologies.
