    Robot Genius RGguard

    The term “Malware” refers to spyware, trojans, viruses, network worms, and rootkits—any installed programs that infects computers and wreaks havoc on computer security and performance. Increasingly, malware is used as a means of stealing personal information, such as credit card numbers or identities. Using the Web, hackers disseminating malware take advantage of free online content dispersal and frequent online updates to circumvent security measures. Reliable protection against malicious attacks necessitates an in-depth knowledge of malware its locations and characteristics.
    RGguard: Proactively Prevents Malware Infections

    RGguard from Robot Genius, provides users and companies with a first line of defense against malware. A lightweight browser plug-in enhancement, RGguard works in tandem with the Robot Genius RGcrawler data to prevent malware infections.

    RGguard browser plug-in proactively warns users of danger while they browse the web by marking up search results links with color-coded safety ratings. It alerts users by recognizing not just the domain but also the full path URL that points to each instance of malware. The exactness of alerts reduces false positives and keeps restricted sites to a minimum.
    Key Benefits

    * Lightweight and unobtrusive, works with all browsers.
    * Zero-day threat protection against all types of malware.
    * A powerful, fully automated method for blocking links to malware and warning users of URLs containing malicious executables.
    * Virtually no impact on system performance or system resources.
    * Exactness of alerts reduces false positives keeping restricted sites to a minimum, and also keeps ‘noisy’ security alerts to a minimum.
