Quick Heal Antivirus provides protection to laptops as well as desktops against any kind of spiteful threat that can enter the system with the intention of causing any kind of harm to the user. It acts as a shield against all types of Trojans, spywares, worms, rootkits etc. It is capable of detecting any of these with the advanced DNA Scan technology available only with Quick Heal. The core protection antivirus, antimalware, antispyware, IDS/IPS and silent firewall ensure total security. All this is done without slowing down the computer as minimum use of the resources is involved.
The worms, viruses and Trojans are cleared of by the antivirus scans which enter the system through infected files from external storage devices, internet downloads or email attachments. Cleaning and blocking of spywares is done by anti-spyware present in the Quick Heal Antivirus thus avoiding identity theft. The Anti-malware present scans down all the files, folders, and registry and removes adwares, roguewares, dialers, riskwares etc. The firewall protection silently works in the background and monitors malicious elements present. The two protocols used for detecting and preventing harmful activities over a network are Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) respectively.
There is an added feature in Quick Heal Antivirus called sandbox. This sandbox runs with the web browser and gives the user a secured browsing. The attack surface is limited by it as its acts as a screen between the operating system and the potential threats. The privacy is maintained as here the internet history and the record of recently viewed applications is removed. The flash drive protection automatically scans and deletes any potential threat present in the external drive.
