    Welcome, streetboy.

    TDS is a very sophisticated Antitrojan; have a look over here for starters ;)

    regards.

    Hello Streetboy and welcome to the forum!

    DCS = DiamondCS = Diamond Computer Systems, a Perth in Australia based company specialised in security software for our computer systems.
    You'll see the team in the forums overhere occasionally, Wayne, Gavin, Jason.
    Wayne and Jason the developers, Gavin the trojan expert, whose special emailbox submit@diamondcs.com.au is open to receive all suspicious files.
    All can be reached via the support@ mailbox if the forum can't help you for some reason.

    TDS = Trojan Defence Suite, one of their most famous products to detect trojans on your system and lots of other nasties, but different from ordinary scanners keeps yourself in the driver's seat to deal with them, while the suite has some 50 different tools and lots of ways to snipe nasties from your system.
    TDS is created for trojans, while the database detects lots of other nasties like worms, keyloggers, dialers, trojan downloaders, adware, trojan spyware, rootkits, you name them. The Exec protection (in the registered version) blocks malicious code before it can even think of executing. TDS is able to find nasty trojan code before it was even executed to infect you, and blocks it before that, in contrary with lots of other scanners which might recognise infections after harm has been done.

    Then we have WormGuard, especially created for dealing with worms and malicious scripts and more risk files; it gives you several options to look in the safe mode in the file and showing what is the risk, so you can still decide to run the file anyway.

    Further there is ProcessGuard, protecting all processes on your system you put under it's protection, so malware never is able to infect your system.

    Port Explorer, shows all connections from and to your system, including suspicious and hidden connections from possible intruders, hackers, connections with trojan servers on your system if there are, all those call home connections from emails, you can spy on the data packets and throttle bandwidth for such processes, you can see whom you're connected with in internet chats, etc etc.

    CryptoSuite, like the name says, a very strong encryption tool for your sensitive data, and it includes a secure encrypted messenger or chat, you run on your own system with people you invite yourself and give a password for that one occasion, so not via a far away server and other possible intruders, but you know who you're talking with (and see the connection via Port Explorer).
    These big five are real great tools.

    It is no firewall, which you should always have, but it is a next line to even protect the firewall (ProcessGuard) to do it's job.
    It is no anti-virus either, for that are other special programs like NOD32 and others.

    Besides those big five, there are lots of tools on the products page, all free, to add to the detection and protection, handy functions to test and kill connections, clean out mIRC worms, protect the registry, etc etc etc while with scripts we can create ourselves even more can be added to the TDS functionalities.

    This is about it in short :)
    So again welcome to the forum, make sure to look also in the special DiamondCS forums, the Official Public a little below this one, and the one on their own site (see link in my signature), visit the DiamondCS sites and get their evaluation versions of all their wonderful software to try it all out on your own system!

    :) sorry about that, i took since 1999 for all that and growing into it as you can see in the thread you originally started posting before this was moved overhere :) (the lightblue URL in my sig)
    Yeah, and all that there for you in just several minutes to learn about the company, users, and the software!
    Hope you enjoy your TDS and the other tools in the meantime!

    I just checked the Trojan killer (TDS) and first impression is good. I think certain facilities may not be available in the evaluation version...I got to check this again at home sometime midnight...one thing I would like to know...being here in India we do not get too many softwares to buy from a computer shop. And there are very few who are prepared to commit their credit card numbers in the net. So, if I sort of like the software how do I purchase it? And...since I need such softwares mainly for home use are there any cheaper, single user(home user) kits available?
    Shall appreciate if you could kindly guide.
    With best regards to all the learned, good friends here
    Sb :)

    You best look at the DiamondCS website in the "buy now!" options.
    All prices and payment options are there, special action packs, etc. And all ways of paying are secure there.

    TDS was created in the first place to make professional software available for both companies and home users, with all those in mind with the prices too.
    Recently calculated if it would be boxed and distributed via shops it could cost at least 6-7 times as much and how to get all the support you have now via the forums and immediately from the developers both via forum and emails?
    Remember TDS-3 licensed users are upgraded for free to the next version.
    For your company there will be multi-licenses also very interesting prices; your company can contact sales@diamondcs.com.au for that.

    In the IMPORTANT sticky thread posting on top in this forum https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=24666 there was a thread with a description which functions you miss in the evaluation version; these are but a few:
    exec protection can't be installed, scripts over 5 KB can't run, and daily updates must be done manually via the site only are the main points i remember.

    All tools are very interesting in networks too, so look at them with that in mind too! Not every tool is suitable for every end-user in a company, but the tools can find their exact places there.

    For instance: you can scan all drives remotely, but for memory scan that needs to be done from the system itself (for extra security reasons), etc.
    Some tools you rather have only on the server for the experts who know what to do with them, others you can have on the desktops as well with a few instructions for the users what to do in case of alarms, etc.
    All depends.
    The secure encrypted messaging in CryptoSuite you can imagine how very good that is as it's safer then telephone even for confidential message exchange.
